Well, it's been a while since my last post, but I've been busy just the same. Sunday April 3rd is a double shift with two shows in the mission. First, Gojogo opens (2pm Sharp!) the Switchboard Music Festival, an 8 hour musical extravaganza featuring some of the best creative groups in the Bay Area as well as some emigres. After taking in some of the other acts, I'll head over to the Make-Out Room to join the Dina Maccabee Band.

Keeping in tonight's theme of shameless self-promotion, I'm giving ample notice of an upcoming gig: Killbossa will play The Layover in Oakland Thursday 1/27 as part of Carne Tremula- a monthly DJ night held on site. I think this is going to be a fun one and I'm trying to have the band present a groovy, dance-oriented set plus a new arrangement of Gilberto Gil's Volks Volkswagen Blue I put together. Do it! 9:30PM.
Whoa, busy one this weekend. Saturday Gojogo played the Subterranean Arthouse. It's a great room in downtown Berkeley with an audience that was there to listen. What a nice thing that is. Sqwonk was really impressive- displaying great musicianship and blending beautifully in the high-ceilinged room. Jon and Jeff are putting on the 4th annual Switchboard Music Festival in Spring which promises to be an overwhelmingly impressive affair. Sunday was a raunchier affair at the Argus. Celebrating professor Hudson's birthday, The Cannery played an opening set and I also joined the good man himself on stage for a "There's No Such Thing As A Holiday Set". Good times were had by all.

Hard to believe it's been over a month since my last post. I have kept myself busy. Saw Dungen at the New Parish, Arcade Fire and Calexico at The Greek. Gojogo played a concert at the DeYoung on October 3rd and then I walked down to see some great stuff at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Killbossa played at the Make-Out and Aca at the Rev. This is starting to feel like a Romper Room Magic Mirror post! Also Dina band (with Cello!) at the Knockout and Dave Hudson at the Argus- all elements distorted- what were we thinking? Anyway, I'm looking forward to tonight's Full Harvest Moon show at Viracocha. Chasing The Moon is a really beautiful podcast and Seaweed Sway shows are always classy and interesting.
