With both Bay Area baseball teams in the post season, you can get in the mood with some baseball music. It doesn't matter if you are a fan of the the San Francisco Giants or the Oakland Athletics.
On Wednesday, Sept. 12, you could have caught a band at the Cafe Du Nord that takes you back in time a good 80 years to the Golden Age of jazz and dance.
I wrote a song about golf with Uptone Eric Din. We received musical help from several Bay Area music heavies including Charles Stella and Keta Bill. I've made it available for free download in the MP3 format.
When someone who doesn’t know me asks what I do for a living and I answer, “I work in radio,” they often look at me like I am a ghost, or at least a dinosaur lumbering toward the Tar Pit. Isn’t radio done? Washed up? Replaced by social media and smartphones?
Now through June 30 at the Michael Rosenthal Gallery (365 Valencia Street, S.F.), there's a showing called Letters Home, an exhibition of new work by San Francisco-based artist Amber Jean Young. I highly recommend checking it out.

In Nashville, starting June 6, is a fan event unlike any other in music. The official title is CMA Music Fest, but that wasn't always its name. It used to be called Fan Fair, and it was just that: a huge country music fair at the Nashville Fairgrounds.
On Thursday night, May 3, for the first time in years, a rock event occurred at the venerated Sausalito studio, The Plant.
Friday, April 27, KRTY (95.3 FM) will mark 20 years in the Country Format. We are celebrating the anniversary all summer long, but this special day kicks off with a morning show broadcast featuring many of the former employees and country stars from the past 20 years.
For me, it's been an on-going challenge to appreciate some of the venues my band has played. But I've come to realize: every venue has something different to offer, something unique and all its own.
In 1977, a group of Bay Area musicians, art school students, and photographers–after being disillusioned by the hippie counter-culture and the 1960s–embraced punk rock.
If you were around the Bay Area music scene in the ’90s, you’ve probably seen M.I.R.V. And if you didn’t, you must have been under one heavy ass rock.
Here’s an “out of the box” theory that just might work. Backstory: Musicians and music itself have been the fodder for “The Music Business” throughout our lifetimes. Musicians don’t usually have enough traction in the business equation to change things. It seems that the only way the music industry changes is by following the public’s behavior.
Luvplanet is a Petaluma-based band that has been building a following as they orbit around the Bay Area and its environs. A great rock band with incredible players, they face the challenges of playing the sometimes shrinking universe of rock venues, and the demands that bands who play original music should play covers.
Sometimes a music video can make a good song even better. These are five music videos I would watch on a desert island for the rest of my life.
Hello Bam Reader, my apologies, it has been a while… I have been busy checking out live music and loving on our local music scene. I've got a good one for ya': Con Brio.
I am by no means a knowledgeable source on punk music, let alone any kind of music that can be misconstrued as "punk." In fact, my idea of punk music might be a spectral opposite from what punk actually is. That understood, I have fallen for what I would refer to as a "punk band."
This blog is about the new movers and shakers, the people driving the Bay Area Music Tech Scene.
