James Kim's 40th Birthday Show 

When: Fri., May 1, 7 p.m. 2015
Price: $8
The Fresh & Onlys, Kelley Stoltz, Magic Trick, Extra Classic, and Wymond Miles have headlined packed shows at mid-size venues such as The Chapel, demanding upwards of $20 from each and every attendee. On Friday, however, at the relatively smaller and much cozier Mission district venue, The Make-Out Room (3225 22nd St., San Francisco), the entire cabal congregates on one bill for a veritable summit of local guitar-band classicists. Admission is $8, the price of nearby pour-over cups of coffee, and the occasion is the birthday of a humble drummer, James Kim, who has lent his talents to everyone on the bill at some point or another. Most acts are at least a few albums deep, recipients of critical acclaim, and entrenched enough in the local music scene to remember San Francisco before it became a city-wide showroom for construction cranes, back when it was cool to never go to Oakland. But most admirably, in spite of a trend among local rock musicians to the contrary, they still live here.
