With the recent passing of the revered Jesse Morris, the punk rock Johnny Cash who used to welcome us onto the 24th St. BART every Friday morning with stirring renditions of “Ring of Fire” and other ballads, that station has been even drearier than usual. It’s easy to forget just how meaningful and significant these people can be in our lives until they’re gone forever.
Fortunately, local filmmaker Javier Roberto Carlos is trying to make sure that history doesn’t repeat itself by making this short documentary about Marcos Alvarez, a blind street musician that plays at the 24th St. BART every Friday afternoon. Give it a look, and if you like what hear, go see the real show live in person this afternoon!
And don’t forget to toss this guy a few bucks if you like his music!
