For The Love of Mondays


For the love of Mondays is a new special weekly party at Pops Bar brought to you by two of the bay areas most intrinsically in-the-groove folks, Nathan Ghio and Benezra Tergis aka DJ’s Om and Mobando. Spinning a vast majority of wax spanning myriad genres and featuring a host of local guest DJs, this weekly event seeks to bring new light to the darkness that is associated with the first day of the official work week.  It the start of work week for some but also the Saturday or Sunday of many of us.  So expect a mix that’s extra vibey and always listeners choice.

About your DJs:

DJ Mobando is a 3rd generation San Francisco native who comes from a large and music family. He began playing professional piano at the age of 12 and has continued to play music ranging from Salsa, Reggae, Funk and Balkan music in various groups.  He has been DJ ing for about 6 years, and loves to share music from his extensive record library.

DJ Om is a native of Berkeley CA, and is likely the most knowledgeable 45 collector you will ever come across.

Patch & Rita


In their own words, Saturday’s happy hour act at Pops Bar, Patch & Rita, are “Foot-stompin’, good timin’, rafter raisin’, tater munchin’ pickers. Murder ballads, goofy old-time tunes, and songs about whiskey are best!” Patrick’s vocals are at times gritty, often drawling, but velvety when necessary, while Laura’s lead vocals are offered in a frank, matter-of-fact sweetness and her harmonies add just the right touch. The dynamic between these two “just works”, and if you look hard enough you might catch them looking deep into the eyes of one another as their talents swirl together in a sonorous dust devil that floats happily along across the desert.  They will leave you stomping your feet and that’s a promise!

It’s that time of the month at Pops Bar where Roger Niner Karaoke will open your mind, shake your ass, shuffle your shizzle, cast you off, reel you in, rent out your heart to a loving couple, make tea in your soul, rake your leaves, find you a puppy, melt your brain, solve your puzzles, get you off The Island, take your temperature, sooth your aching nerves, reach your stars, bend your perception of space/time, AND give you back $0.97 in change, all in the name of Rock and/or Roll BAY AREA KARAOKE! Not bad for a Friday night in the mission.  The event is free, but your drunken rendition of Dpn’t Stop Believin’ is priceless.
