California Roots Union Presents: Cliff Wagner & The Old #7 and Miss Lonely Hearts

Cliff Wagner and The Old #7 & Miss Lonely Hearts
Saturday, May 16 at T. Boyles Tavern in Pasadena, CA.
It's going to be a great night of roots and country music.

I think this review and this photograph tell you everything you need to know about Miss Lonely Hearts:

“Seeing Miss Lonely Hearts live is like witnessing an impromptu hoedown in the most carcinogenic of coal mines. Or being an unsuspecting tourist who stumbled upon a whiskey-soaked shotgun wedding. Either way, Wyatt Hesemeyer uses tongue-in-cheek, Johnny Cash-like vocals to tell tales of women and disasters which, at times, are one in the same: My baby ain't a ball and chain, shes a wreckin ball. Combined with the old-timey beat of Mischa Gaschs upright bass, its tough to decide between headbangin or kickin up your cowboy boots either way, you'll have a stupid grin on your face.”

Cliff and the band have an original sound that utilizes traditional bluegrass, blues, and Honky Tonk to create an American roots music that people of all ages and backgrounds enjoy. "If Bill Monroe had started a band with Muddy Waters and Levon Helm, this is what it would sound like." The band has played all over the western US and...Cliff is a wicked banjo player. Gonna be good!

T. Boyle’s Tavern is located at 37 N. Catalina Avenue in Pasadena.

It is behind the Academy 6 Cinemas, and just to the east of the Ice House Comedy Club. There is no entrance or signage on Catalina Ave.

There is a parking structure located on the west side of Mentor Avenue, in between Union Street and Colorado Boulevard. Mentor is a one way southbound street, so you must enter Mentor Avenue from the north to enter the structure.

Additionally, there is free street parking after 6:00pm; as well as another pay lot with limited space just north of the venue, across Rhodes Alley.
