Scott Pemberton, the Portland Timber Rocker, will host a Hangtown Appreciation Show at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at Tahoe Beach Retreat and Lodge, 3411 Lake Tahoe Blvd., South Lake Tahoe. Show is for fans 21 and older and cover charge is $10. Special guest El Camino will open the show.
With a penchant for keeping the laces on his black high-top basketball shoes untied and wearing faded jeans around his skinny legs fastened at the waist by a belt buckle with the initials “S.P,” Pemberton is a hippie superhero known as the Timber Rocker. His kryptonite is a guitar strap, so he plays his ax on a stool. He jams like Jerry Garcia, is as funky as James Brown and as quick as the Rip City’s Trailblazers point guard Damian Lillard.
