Highpoint Lowlife originally started out as a weekly DJ night at POW! on 6th and Mission, circa 1999, so it’s gonna be a fun one playing the same blend of weirdo electronics, hip hop, and noise! With DJ’s Thor, Bill Shitski and Mel taking you on a musical adventure all night.

Cool song about 597 Guerrero Street called “597 Guerrero Street”

The band Drunken Prayer is from Asheville, NC, it looks like. I stumbled onto this while wondering what former Reigning Sound drummer Lance Wille (one of the greatest drummers I’ve ever seen) was up to.

Here’s a photo of 597 Guerrero Street and its neighbor, Pay and Save:

Spin the Night

spin

Make no mistake, the music scene is alive and well in San Francisco. Pops Bar is committed to shining a light on those local heroes working hard to keep it going strong. With that, we bring you Spin the Night this Wednesday. Enjoy a DJ set from local band Hot Flash Heat Wave. Hot Flash Heat Wave create melodically upbeat, hook-filled garage rock, referencing a range of influences from Girls and the Beach Boys, to Santo & Johnny and Weezer. Their style is partially a tongue and cheek nod to the dreamy, lo-fi vibes of the “chill-wave” movement, as contrasted by the more sunny, sweltering sound of their own jams (“heat-wave”). So join us for a boozy fun filled night with jams from musicians who inspire San Franciscans to PARTY ON!
