La Corde at the Knockout Tonight!

In case you were wondering about what all those crows have been doing in the Mission lately, it’s obvious from this flyer that they’re raging about the Alcoholocaust show at the Knockout tonight.  If you’re not doing anything on this fine Tuesday evening, check out my band La Corde at one of your favorite Mission bars/venues.  We’re playing last after two-piece punk brigade Culture Corpse and Oakland stalwarts High Castle, so come on down and check out some local tunes (but please leave the Marina party bus at home).

Halloween Begins At The Secret Alley

The little rats in The Secret Alley have been madly scurrying about to prepare for two amazing weekends of Halloween. Up first – tonight! – musicians will play some amazingly creepy music for you. Tomorrow (Sat.) we will scare the old fashioned pants off of you with some 16mm monster movies from a time gone by.

Both nights you will enter through our recently haunted laboratory lobby, and try to shield your eye, yet remain transfixed on the wondrously strange art that hangs from the walls. Surprises are in store. Come see for yourself.

17th & Capp Indoor Block Party

If you like art or music or food or short films or rad people or just kickin’ it on Capp Street you should head to these fine institutions this Saturday. Three art spaces mere steps away from one another are joining forces to simultaneously rock your world.

The Sub will have art and photography on display for your viewing delight as well as live music and DJ skills. 199 Capp Street.

Kitsch Gallery will host a silent auction to benefit Homeless Children’s Network and have some pleasing music to lull you into giving. 3265 17th Street.

The Secret Alley (of which I am a member) will take you through paintings and installations downstairs, then upstairs to show you super sweet short films presented by Wholphin in the afternoon and then rock your body with live jammy jams in the evening. 180 Capp Street.

McSweeney's At The Secret Alley

McSweeney's At The Secret Alley
Tomorrow night (Saturday) McSweeney’s new book The Clock Without A Face will be released into the wild! Come to The Secret Alley at 7pm to catch authors Eli Horowitz and Mac Barnett present the book and the accompanying nation-wide treasure hunt. Exclusive clues to the whereabouts of the 12 emeralds will probably slip out.

Stick around for the magic of Christian Cagigal and the acoustic music of Hod Hulphers, Chris Klippel, The Gilded Rooks and Champion McConnell.

All this for the price of nothing! Free as the beautiful air around you!

More info about the amazing book can be found here.

The Secret Alley is at 180 Capp Street, between 16th and 17th, right near BART!
