We are so excited that LOUD & LOCAL is bringing The Total Bettys Inflatable water slide for sale Canada to Pops Bar this Week!  On the first Thursday of every month LOUD & Local presents a night to benefit BFF.fm, featuring awesome live bands and guest DJs at Pops Bar.  This Thursday, San Francisco’s Pop Punk band The Total Bettys join DJ Ash & DJ Bailey for a night of BFF trifecta fun.

The Total Bettys recently talked to Vents Magazine on the role San Francisco plays in their music: “There are so many ways that San Francisco influences our music. First of all the musicians in the scene here are extremely influential to our songwriting and our growth: bands like Jay Som, Hazel English, Try the Pie, SOAR… having so many talented people working in the Bay Area influences our music a lot.  But also, we tend to make a lot of San Francisco references. Like, about how it’s freezing cold at the beach, but extremely hot in October. We reference shopping at this classic record store called Amoeba on Haight Street, things like that. It’s a special city that I feel really privileged to call home.”

21+ / 9pm - close / FREE (donations for BFF.fm collected at the door)

Come out to Pops and support local music!

Madrone Art Bar, Nopa Restaurant, Pops Bar, The Divisadero Corridor and the Mission District will be hosting a Celebration of Life for Caleb Micah McGehee.

This Sunday from 1-4pm, at Madrone Art Bar 500 Divisadero Street, San Francisco, CA.

All he touched are welcome and encouraged to share in this community celebration. Caleb’s bright life touched so many people that it’s incredibly daunting for only the Madrone, Nopa, and Pop’s families to communicate without help. Please feel free to share this message and details with anyone in and outside our industry. Caleb was an extremely vibrant and empathetic human being let’s be together and share the joy he brought into our lives.

At 4pm a 2nd Line processional will slowly make its way from Madrone to Nopa and into Alamo Square Park to send this wonderful young man off to a more peaceful place.

Love and kindness to you.

With thoughtfulness,

Madrone Art Bar

Pops 80th Anniversary Bash!

80th_Online-01

14047157_622812394558559_7976361527513275141_o

Turning 80 has never felt so good! Join us as we celebrate Pops Bar legacy in San Francisco from 1937-2017! Pops scandalous history in San Francisco begins with Carl Joseph Saxsenmeier AKA: POPS who is rumored to have been a bootlegger operating a “clubhouse” during prohibition. The clubhouse would later become the basis for the bar when the 21st Amendment was repealed. While the bar has changed hands and locations over the years, its legacy as “Pops” in San Francisco for the past 80 years is solid. This Wednesday, Pops resident DJs celebrate all night from 6pm-2am with drink specials, bbq, Pops T-Shirts and a raffle to benefit Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund. Join us, we’re looking damn fine at 80!
