Daaang. Joshua writes in with a treatise on Blondies’ Bar & No Grill, Mission bars in gen, and his band Neighbors. Sometimes these posts just write themselves, people:
have you guys ever been to blondies?the band Little Wings played there last sunday night, pretty amazing set, for such a small place, they’ve got an amazing sound system. They’re more known for their martinis than the live shows they put on but their promoter, Alex Gallagher has been putting on some big name acts mixed in with local bands that aren’t doing that whole “GARAGE / NOISE” bs, musicians more interested in music than hipsters.The martinis are amazing though, stuffed olives (ginger / jalapeno / bleu cheese & some other stuff I can’t remember), they use top shelf gins & serve it in a 16oz glass for 11 bucks. Which means you can split it up into two drinks, one for you & one for someone special.Mainly, I wanted to show you guys this.that’s the flier for the show being put on by Blondies nextsunday, October 25th.Ashley, Eden & myself are in the band called Neighbors.We’ve been playing around lately, Kimos, the Knockout,last thursday, the Hemlock. Even still, we like Blondiesbest, it has the mission feel without any of the pretense thatone might recieve if youwere to say, wear the wrong stylejacket into the Knockout. NO THANKS!!!! you know?its just a good neighborhood bar, like El Rio.
Whew. Feel free to wear whatever style jacket you want at Blondies’ while slammin back an $11 double.
Thanks for writing in, J! And way to sell an idea. I actually had no idea Blondies’ put on shows.
