Doors open at 7 p.m. and the music gets underway at 7:30 p,m. "We are always on the lookout for that next great Town Hall Theatre concert," said Plumas Arts Executive Director Roxanne Valladao. "The Alvins bring a first rate band, provide an exciting show and, as brothers, they have a great story." A little history The Alvin brothers were in their 20s when they founded roots-rock band the Blasters in 1979. The group found inter.national fame in the early 1980s and released five studio albums. Rolling Stone exalted their, "bright, raw playing, terrific taste and ... (Phil's) full-bodied vocals." Robert Christgau, of the Village Voice, wrote that Dave was, "a major songwriter, one with John Fogerty's bead on the wound-tight good times of America's tough white underbelly." The Blasters opened for a variety of big-name bands, including Queen, Los Lobos and Dwight Yoakam. Breaking up The brothers split in 1986, when Dave left the band to pursue a solo career. It took a near-death experience to reunite the California siblings. "Phil died and was brought back to life over in Spain," Dave said about his brother's 2012 health scare. "That was a real wake up call to me. We hadn't made afull album together since 1985, but as you get older, you realize you're not immortal and you've only got so much time." Making up For their first record back musical favorites - Arkansas blues-man Big Bill Broonzy. The albumearned critical acclaim from NPR, The Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times. "Phil's passionate vocals rattled me to the core," said Valladao. "Brother Dave, a musically savvy guitarist and not a bad vocalist either, gives the melodies a unique spark with his fiery leads and switchblade solos. We are very excited to be able to bring this big talent to our little town." 'Lost Time' The Alvins are scheduled to visit Quincy between dates at the Strawberry Music Festival and the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in San Francisco, while on tour celebrating the release of their latest record, "Lost Time." Covers once again, but rather than focusing on one artist, they pay tribute to several. Dave said he and his brother grew up near Disneyland, but spent their time as teenagers learning from musicians at blues and country venues. "Lost Time" honors their influences, with songs by blues forebears Lead Belly, Oscar Brown Jr., Blind Boy Fuller and Big Joe Turner-- who the Alvins consider a mentor. "He was an early musical hero of ours and remains so now," explained Dave. "When we were young teenagers, Phil and I followed Big Joe around from gig to gig, eventually getting to be lifelong friends with him."
