Girlpool and Buster Poindexter: Great Wednesday night shows 2 weeks in row at the Chapel

This Wednesday it’s the kinda quiet, kinda downbeat duo Girlpool. Watch a video and read this blurb:

Life has been a whirl for Girlpool since the release of their acclaimed 2015 debut Before the World Was Big. Shortly before the record came out, Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker relocated from their hometown of Los Angeles all the way across the country to Philadelphia, where they quickly became embedded in the local D.I.Y. scene. “Before BTWWB, I was just out of high school, living in my old neighborhood,” recalls Cleo Tucker. “Then we started touring in a way we’d never done before. I really started to experience the duality that was beginning to exist in my life: tour/not on tour.”After a chaotic and informative year spent floating around the East Coast, both bandmates moved home to California at the start of 2017.

Tickets and info here.

Next Wednesday it’s the loud loud loud, always upbeat ’80s superstar Buster Poindexter. Video and blurb:

Today, the words “blues” and “shouting” are, alas, inextricably linked, but what about the tradition of mellow blues crooners that extended through Charles Brown, Nat King Cole and, in their more romantic moments, Joe Williams and Ray Charles? “Buster Poindexter” (nee David Johansen) first attracted attention as a glam rock pioneer (in the New York Dolls, with whom he still tours) and then as an early MTV idol (with “Hot Hot Hot”). Yet with his big, deep, resonant voice, Buster Poindexter is most impressive as a crooner and occasional belter of ballads in the classic R&B tradition. His ongoing run affirms the point that however you know him, the artist known as Buster Poindexter, complete with his one-liners and longer comic monologues (not to mention his signature pompadour), is one of the most endearing and enduring entertainers currently trodding the boards in New York.

Tickets and info here.

Nice work, the Chapel! Their full calendar here.

Thank you for voting Pops Bar best dive bar in SF Weekly’s Best of San Francisco! We did our research, a 1961 dictionary defined a “dive” as “a disreputable resort for drinking or entertainment”. It’s also referred to as a neighborhood bar, where local residents gather to drink and socialize. While we think it’s sexy to have a bad reputation, we happily accept the latter. Come get divey with your neighbors this week at Pops Bar!

Check out this week’s full entertainment line up at Pops Bar:

Mission Local reports:

A 23-year-old man is in critical condition after he was assaulted and stabbed at Dolores Park late Wednesday afternoon, eyewitnesses reported. Police confirmed one person was stabbed at 5:23 p.m. by a group of five suspects ranging from 17 to 20 years old.

Two eyewitnesses, Mark and Barbara, said a group of five or six youths chased the victim across the park and then attacked him with a golf club and a glass bottle.


One eyewitness said that it was reminiscent of incidents in the 1980s.
