DANKO JONES and MIDDLE CLASS RUT Rock the ZIPPO Stage at PITG, 2013 at the Gorge

Pain in the Grass, 2013, combined with the ROCKSTAR UPROAR Fest this year at the Gorge in Washington. It could only be this two day combined music extravaganza that could be big enough to bring the likes of Danko Jones and Middle Class Rut to the forefront of the ZIPPO Stage.  Day two if this incredible music fest was, unlike Day 1, free of rain, sleet and hail. The Gorge skies opened up and presented the perfect atmosphere for the thousands of Washington State music fanatics to enjoy what could possibly pass as the best lineup at the Gorge this year.

 

The Sacramento, CA-based duo of vocalist/guitarist Zack Lopez and vocalist/drummer Sean Stockham known as Middle Class Rut took to the Zippo stage at 4:45 and rocked the crowd with a barrage of huge sounds and an incredible on stage presence filled with energy. Since first checking out these guys I can now understand why the USA Today named their hit track “Aunt Betty” their song of the week earlier this year. It is quite apparent that these guys are well on their way to becoming a household name.

Danko and JC headlined the Zippo Stage with a set starting at 5:40. It would be an understatement to say that these guys know Rock and Roll. DANKO and JC, simply put, are rock and roll. The two heavy hitters combined to bring an in your face, no holds bared set that solidifies their legacy in the rock and roll arena. After six albums, Danko Jones is still bringing it with an insane amount of intensity and he is showing no signs of ever slowing down. This Jack of all trades, as Jones is often referred to, energized and electrified the crowd bringing an epic conclusion to the PITG/Uproar Fest side stages.
