Thistledown Tinkers
A powerful music duo featuring Trip Rogers and Tom Eure, on a mission…to make Celtic music that forces folks to stand up and take notice. (This is not the fragile, romanticized Celtic music you hear in movie soundtracks, but the kind that makes you sing along and stomp your feet.)

On Saturday night:

More info: In Early January of 2016 new ownership took over the lease of the site where Rodi Med American Grill once operated.  Now called OLIO’S LLC, the dreamchild  of local business owner, Jenny C. Carrington and now the owner,  and long time employee of Rodi, John McCall coming in as the GM/KM/Patissier, has given this piece of history a FRESH, NEW FUNKY MAKE OVER!  The past is the past,  Olio’s is looking to the future.  With fresh new paint and color inside the restaurant, to the funky listening lounge at the end of the bar with a vintage turntable unit and lps, Olio’s will offer its returning customers and NEW ones something different in Gastonia.
