Saloon Concert @ Nick Fink's-August 13, 2010 - TIM PAK + JOSH ROSE

JOSH ROSE –  Grand Rapids, MI

A character, an actor, a writer, a teacher, a singer of stories with a modern troubadour’s gift for getting to the heart of the matter. With his trademark poetic savvy and laid back mid-tempo arrangements (that always find a groove), Josh has minced folk and pop to create his latest album “Slow Bloom” that takes on a invigorating new perspective with each listen. From epic synth-peppered songs, such as Heat Lightning and So Called Crisis, to the bare ballads of Slow Bloom and Rose of Sharon, each of the tracks will ignite tendrils of growth in the mind.

TIM PAKFairlawn, VA (via Detroit MI)

Experience the rough-hewn, no-nonsense songs from man-of-the-people Tim Pak. SOUNDS LIKE: “An old car rollin’ down the road, powered by equal parts hope, strong drink and a fondness for simple things, with a guitar and a banjo in the back seat, and problems getting smaller in the rear view mirror.” Last appearing at Nick Fink’s as part of “Woody’s Bastards,” Tim has previously led some great Detroit bands including “Angry Red Planet” and “The Salt Miners.” He is also an audio magician and producer; he will do your tracks right.
