Jugtown Pirates (CD release celebration!!!)

Jugtown Pirates are a psychedelic rock/bluegrass band from the Haight that plays their own raucous brand of “dirty grass.” They consist of four core members and are typically accompanied by one or more of a long list of very skillful and talented special guests. Every show is a euphoric celebration and the band is excited to release their third CD at this special “Mary Jane” event.

Three Times Bad

Three Times Bad is “a hot new San Francisco string trio born from the soundtrack to the critically acclaimed, transmedia novel ‘badbadbad’” (Hood River News) by bandmate Jesus Angel Garcia. The group plays “dirty American roots music” (The Register-Guard). Think: “Epic moustaches and bent bluegrass” (The Source Weekly), blues and country, hillbilly swing and Appalachian rags, Gypsy jazz, freak preachery, murder ballads, folk punk, story songs, and hot singalongs. Three Times Bad is “urban hillbilly music at its finest: ear-opening, toe-tapping tales of love-making on cornbread crumbs, illicit obsession with the reverend’s wife and possum stew, and gospel hoedowns the likes of which you haven’t seen since Jonathan Edwards and the Great Awakening” (SouthTahoeNOW).

JD Limelight

Polyamorous instrumentalist JD Limelight plays accordion, guitar, bass, ukulele, octophone, autoharp, and mandolin. He also sings and composes songs. His latest project features tunes drawn from personal experience and written along his journey from the rusty underbelly of Eastbania to the green expanses of Sonomastan.
