“It’s Only Rock & Roll but I like it…. Yes I do” is maybe the most pertinent line for the hordes of us who have grown up listening to what many consider the Greatest Rock & Roll band in history. The Rolling Stones continue to fill stadiums across the world as they bring their show to their huge collection of fans. Alas, if one wants a Rolling Stones experience on a much smaller and more intimate setting, you might want to plan and come to the Auburn’s “Foothill Fillmore” @ the Odd Fellows Lodge on Frida, as the Unauthorized Rolling Stones bring their fun for one special night.

Over the past couple decades, Rudi Colombini and The Unauthorized Rolling Stones (URS) have gained the reputation as the most authentic and best Stones tribute band out there. Rudi’s energy and stage presence matches that of Mick Jagger, as the seasoned band crunches the tunes. Attendees will get to hear their favorite tunes from throughout the bands enduring career, in a most intimate and fun venue.

Keep Smilin’s “Foothill Fillmore,” located within the historic, 120 year plus old Odd Fellows Lodge in Auburn, has become the go-to destination for good ‘ole Rock & Roll live music experience. Scott Holbrook, head of the family run Keep Smilin’ Promotions, himself a long time Stone’s fan, advises that for this show he is bringing in Steve Goldsmith, a pioneer in concert “visual magic.” For this show Steve will be presenting a multi-media show combining modern digital technology, fun video and good old fashioned handmade live liquid lights.

As is the case with most shows at the hall, the opening band will not be one folks will want to miss. Bob Woods & The Grateful Riders will be showcasing their takes on some of the classic sounds that helped influence many of the Stones songs during their “country” period. As the name implies there will be some Grateful Dead and New Riders of the Purple Sage music, but they will bring much more. Bob Wood’s known for his incredible guitar licks and dance inducing music will get the evening off to a great start, and they should begin shortly after the doors open at 7.

Holbrook reminds all to bring their ID as all shows are 21+, due to the full Craft Beer and Cocktail bar hosted buy the hard working Odd Fellows (and a few incredible ladies). Also on hand will be some snacks for those who may not have had time to eat before the show.
