Bluegrass fix tonight

Deadwood-Revial-7_9 Contrary to what some will have you believe, Tacoma is the type of town where bluegrass can thrive. Just because white folks with trust funds and Subarus have stuck their flag in the genre (a flag covered with Apple stickers and ticket stubs from that summer they followed Dave Matthews Band to “decompress” after the rigors of the college drum circle circuit), it doesn’t mean the music’s roots will just fade into nothing and become meaningless. No, bluegrass will always be a genre created by hardscrabble immigrants and played with the passion of calloused hands. Bluegrass, at heart, is blue collar â€" and the same thing can be said about Tacoma.

For this reason, Deadwood Revival’s foot stompin set at Doyle’s tonight is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Whether Subarus from the North End descend on Tacoma’s favorite public house in droves, or the dusty and faded denim of our city’s south and east sides shows up in bigger numbers, Thursday at Doyle’s is sure to be a good time. For fans of bluegrass, this one’s a no brainer.

[Doyle’s Public House, Thursday, July 9, 7-9 p.m., no cover, 208 St. Helens Ave., Tacoma, 253.272.7468
