One more thing the event goes from 5-10pm
For a historical tidbit, I met Jesse in 96' while he was touring with Filth. I was selling an assortment of Lookout 45's in my music case and I was selling his old Blatz records. He introduced himself as Jesse Blatz to me
RDL+ is intricate and fresh! Not to be missed! Great music; great venue.
This is the best 'no booze - no shoes' dance in the East Bay! Great vibes, great music, and comfortable sound levels, no earplugs needed!
Are you kidding Bob Enos Soundwave is amazing. The acoustics are great and they are all musicians who just love to play.
Soundwave is a great band! The BBQ dinner was fantastic! There was no cover charge which is amazing. All the players in the band were experts at their craft. Not much room to dance but everyone is having such a great time, the atmosphere can't be beat. If you like big band music, you have to go.
This is a welcoming Irish music session, that often boasts between 10 and 20 musicians (on a good night) playing fiddles, flutes, whistles, banjos, mandolins and other instruments. Shay Black hosts the session weekly and invites selected people to sing during the evening. A sliding scale applies, which usually means buying the band a drink ($3 - $5) when the "woolly hat" comes around. "Quiet" (meaning listen) when people sing is an Irish expectation, and is expected here too, but there is lots of time to laugh, socialize, drink and have fun when the session tunes are being played.
The Possum Family Singers play and sing the Starry Plough Saturday Happy hour 5-7 PM every First, Third. Fourth, and sometimes Fifth Saturday of each month. Lead by Laurie Miller on bass and vocals, singer/songwriter Ann Wright on guitar, banjo, cello and vocals, singer/songwriter Matt Parker, with appearances by selected guests, of late Art Peterson of the Polka Cowboys on accordion and baritone Ukelele.
I went last week for "Metal Night" to check it out, and the attitude in there was shit. The sleazehole checking ID said "I can tell you're legal, why don't you just come in before handing me your ID?" (I would have, but his fat ass was blocking the doorway) There was no metal playing, just some Tears for Fears, and the energy was reeking of a bunch of washed up lowlifes. As I walked out, the same douche made a last attempt to keep us by warning us the last call was @ 1:30...
If you're in the area, don't bother going here, go instead to Beer Revolution or Vitus. Or just head out to Eli's Mile High, a great example of a neighborhood dive bar with people who are gritty but amiable and just want to help you have a good time.
Don't go here! Aweful. Who likes 19 piece big bands with no cover charge? Ewww and those aweful $3.00 PBRs? Just to make sure its so bad, I've been going every week for 2 months now, and this band can't even play the same song twice! Pathetic.
