What better way to celebrate your birthday than by throwing a concert with some of your closest friends? That's exactly how local singer-songwriter, and frontwoman for Treasurefruit, Anamieke Quinn is ringing in her 33rd year. Catch her this Friday, October 3, with a shindig at Rogue Bar , where she'll be headlining with Treasurefruit, playing along with pal bands The Deer Leader, Dirty Lingo and Field Tripp. This marks the 13th year Quinn has put on a birthday show, ever since her very first concert ever with her original music when she turned 21 on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles.
"To me, birthdays are the equivalent of New Year's, only better," Quinn says. "It's a chance to review your individual journey and look ahead to the next milestone. It's a cathartic crossroads where you check in with yourself and say, "I accept all that I am at this moment, but how much more ass can I kick in the next 12 months?"
For this year's show, Quinn teases there may be a pinata, and she looks forward to doing a birthday shot with the crowd. Head to Rogue at 9 p.m. for the 21-and-older show, which is $5, and keep reading to listen to five of Quinn's favorite tracks for ringing in a birthday.
