Located just minutes from downtown Sacramento on the American River, Camp Pollock is a piece of local history and a true hidden gem. The property is 11 acres total and includes a 4,000 square foot lodge built nearly 100 years ago, which is where more than a dozen killer local bands and musicians are lined up to play an all-day benefit show this Sunday, Oct. 13, to help raise funds to fix up the place and to help keep the camp open and operational. This all-ages shindig is being organized in part by local musician and familiar face in the open mic scene, Marty Taters (it’s also his birthday show), and will feature such acts as Blue Oaks (fuzzed out indie rock), Brotherly Mud (Americana and folk-rock), Band of Coyotes (a fun blend of rock, folk and blues), Shotgun Slim (featuring Leo Bootes on guitar/vocals, who just last week was inducted into the Sacramento Blues Society’s Hall of Fame!), plus Sal Valentino (singer-songwriter best known as lead singer of The Beau Brummels) and many others. There will be two stages—the louder rockin’ bands will each play 25-minute sets inside the lodge, and outside on the deck is where the quieter acts will perform 15-minute sets. Admission is $15 and that includes barbecue from T&R Taste of Texas (while supplies last, of course). The event will run from around noon–7 p.m., and there will be beer and wine for purchase. Money raised from beer and wine sales goes directly to the camp’s efforts. Rumor has it that Taters is also co-producing a compilation album with George Jenkins (who is co-producing the benefit concert) that features many of the bands on this show all recorded live inside the Pollock lodge over the last couple months, so keep an eye out for that release. Camp Pollock is located at 1501 Northgate Blvd. For more info, check out Facebook.com/camppollocksac or Facebook.com/marty.taters.
