Weekend Warrior Alert From 16th St Bart.

Y’know there’s so much going on in town , I’ve never been able to figure out why when I surface at 16th St. on most every Thursday night there’s a group of hipster spoken word sorta performers & audience types gathered…

Here’s a crappy cell phone foto for proof:

Of course, being less a journalist, and more a shy blogger kinda guy I’m always afraid to ask ‘em, lest I seem an “unhipster” like “duh” dude…

I mean it is “the mission” after all…the kinda place you’re just as likely to bump into a crack dealer or the mighty hip Mayor on New Year’s eve, or maybe even the mayoral coke dealer…

uh, like, who really knows…

But, if you’d like to find exactly wassup with these yakking Bart Station frequenting ne’er do ‘ells and would like an obviously exposed to the various “elements” sorta entertaining time, there’s always a couple dozen verbose folks gathered betwixt 10:00-12:00 most Thursdaze at the stairs there

…go ask em yerself…

Me, I’m bloggin “live” from the Kilowatt and I’m more worried about Friday… and my picks and some MP3z fer yer rock n rollin entertainment pleasure are listed after the jump chump…

First Up

Anyone reading this before 4pm still has time to catch T Bone Burnett, Neko Case, Jeff Tweedy and even John Cougar in Golden gate Park for the opening day of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Billionaire “private equity” dude Warren Hellman puts ‘em on his tab, and all you gotta do is watch…

Longtime local and might I add, “Oscar nominated” gut bucket country act Red Meat is at the Knockout on Friday night… It’s a long story…but suffice to say they are better than Kenny Chesney…

Red Meat – Alameda County Line

I hear the hippee heathens are headed to Bay Meadows ( a short Cal Train ride away) for tomorrow’s Mother Hips meets the ponies performance…

If yer not familiar with the Mother Hips,,,here’s a sample from one of their more recent releases

oh and for those who’d like to rawk Canadian style … The Sadies are at DuNord, a band you may know better as the band that did the “Kids In The Hall” theme song… but that’s not all they do and they’ll be sharing the stage with the great Jon Langford as special guest, when he finishes entertaining upstairs with his legendary band, The Mekons, at The Swedish American Hall…

Anyhow, here’s one from the Sadies latest release…
