FREE Judgement Day Show Tonight at Amoeba in Berkeley

I really don’t know what else to say about Judgement Day that we haven’t already said here, here, and here.  Quite simply, they are bad ass!  So instead I’ll tell you how I feel about Amoeba: If god had a basement, it would look like Amoeba Records. What used to

Broke-Ass Band Interview – Think About Life

Sunny’s Bar: Bluegrass Jams in Redhook

Sunny’s is in the same part of Redhook with the Ikea and Fairway. But unlike them, Sunny’s has no glowing neon sign or monsterous parking lot. (and Sunny’s doesn’t give me a panic attack). It’s a building with a sign that simply says “bar” that would be easy to miss,
