Re: “Can Birdland Take Flight in Its New Location?

The new Birdland 2.0 incorporates the down-home charm, the wonderful eccentricities, and the community feel of its former Berkeley location with ceiling height, a nice dance floor and a beautiful renovation job on its new digs. Now one of the best party scenes ever has evolved into a space where more peo0ple can see really great music and feel really good about it!

The bird has landed on 43rd and MLk! Super excited that its finally happening and legit. It took a lot of hard work so cheers to Birdman and everyone who made it happen.

Re: “Can Birdland Take Flight in Its New Location?

Michael's quest is a worthy one - there's a motherlode of terrific local musicians and a scarcity of venues, and Michael's been wonderfully open about presenting a wide range of us. Here's to many years of great live *local* music!

Re: “Keep Mutating

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for noting my miscalculation about 38 years. On the "first Bay Area punk record" point, I should have clarified it and wrote "first Bay Area punk album." I wrote "arguably," because Psychotic Pineapple's album is earlier, though perhaps not "punk."

Re: “Keep Mutating

It's stated that he joined Chrome "more than forty years ago." Yet if he joined after 1976's "The Visitation," that was 38 years back.
Also, it's claimed that the DKs' debut LP of 1980 was "arguably the first Bay Area punk record." This ignores and slights the 1976 single by Crime, the 1977 EP by The Avengers, the 1978 EP by The Readymades, etc.

Re: “Are Jazz Festivals Excluding Women?

Gender discrimination has no place in jazz.....It doesn't matter if you are a girl or a guy, ..What matters is can you play? Can you swing? This would be like saying there is 30 % blacks and 70 % whites...or 57 % are italian american, while only 23 % are German american...Jazz belongs to all races, all color and and all genders...It is 2014, it's so sad we are even talking about this....
