Friday, Feb. 7: The Silver Dollars

B Sharp Coffee House

By Rev. Adam McKinney on February 6, 2014

The past few years have been exciting ones for certain graduates of the Tacoma School of the Arts: members of a SOTA music collective called Dear Records. Alumni of Dear Records include Brad Oberhofer (of Oberhofer, you know?), Molly Hamilton (of Pitchfork-approved Widowspeak), Colin Scott Reynolds (I Low, Watermelon Sugar, general busking) and Dylan Treleven (collaborator with all aforementioned, touring member of Oberhofer and Widowspeak). This handful of art students made the move to New York, and have been keeping the same urgent pace they set for themselves as indie rock upstarts in Tacoma.

Friday sees the return of two of our Tacoma sons. Treleven and Reynolds are touring with their new project, The Silver Dollars. Born out of Treleven's desire to write his own material while out on lengthy tours in other bands, the Silver Dollars feels like a natural extension of what began back at SOTA.
