The Acoustic Side of Punk

Last night I went to the Face to Face show at Slims in San Francisco. They just released an acoustic album. Opening for them were Get Dead who, if you haven’t heard of them, you should go listen to their music. Their Wikipedia page says they are “anti-folk” in genre. Seemed like a great description. Their sound is not unlike Flogging Molly but their lead singer has a raspy voice that gives soul to the sound. The middle-man for the night was Cory Branan. A single act that was country-rock. I especially liked his song, “A girl Named Go.” The main act. Face To Face. Heard their music a ton over the years, but this was fresh and fun. They said that an acoustic show gave them an excuse to talk about each sone in between.  The chemistry of the band was perfect. The crowd was having a blast. Check out albums and shows for all three.

Radwood Norcal

On Sunday I rolled up to Oyster Point to wander the Radwood Norcal car show. If you don’t know Radwood it is a car show dedicated to the cars of the 80’s and 90’s. For me, these are the cars of my youth. They had everything from mild to wild. There was an early 90’s Taurus SHO parked near a Ferrari F40. The Radwood gang have done a fantastic job of putting together a traveling show that speaks to not only an enthusiast community but to a generation of people who until now were underrepresented in car culture. The day was beautiful. The cars were plentiful. They had great music, great food, and a lot of awesome people wandering around talking about the cars. If you haven’t yet, check out the scene.
