You might notice, but you'll be too drawn in to care. The evening starts with the Bellyachers -- a rootsy rock 'n roll band from Oakland who create a sonic landscape merging influences as diverse as Willie Nelson to Flaming Lips. (www.bellyachers.com) Next up, Nelly Bly (www.breech.net/sub/nellie.html) blazes a trail all the way from Los Angeles to bring you "avenging-angel music for the jilted lover or the wronged artiste" ( - Orange County Weekly - read the whole article here: www.ocweekly.com/ink/02/46/music-asch.php). Lastly, catch the ladies of Loretta Lynch in a rare trio performance, delivering back woods lullabies in divine 3 part harmony. This show is part of Val Esway's monthly acoustic series at the Teahouse, and she is delighted to present this fine evening of music, which is sure to fill up quickly, so get there early for a good seat.

Get Your Truck On! Thee Parkside 1600 17th St. at Wisconsin
San Francisco, CA
1:00 pm

$10 Get Your Truck On! Hitch up, gear up and haul yer sorry seat down to San Francisco’s Thee Parkside for a full day of gear-jammin' double-clutchin' pill-poppin' music!! Prepare for a brake check on the big road as Carolyn Mark (the Corn Sisters) joins an array of the Bay Area’s finest bands for a salute to the Kings and Queens of the Road. Bring your bubbas on down for an afternoon of West Coast turnaround where the chrome will shine extra bright, your boots will boogie on their own and the only whine you’ll be hearing is a diesel lullaby … BBQ, Belt Buckles, and Trucker Trivia for Fabulous Prizes! Park yer rig and unhook yourself for a good time, ‘cuz the guts you see will be on stage, not on the road. Performers include: Carolyn Mark (Mint Records) – Showing no signs of getting on any wagon, this country chanteuse (1/2 of the Corn Sisters, with Neko Case) parks her wheels in the Bay area to promote her new album “The Pros and Cons of Collaboration”. Part honkytonk/country singer, part brash comedienne,”Our First Lady of the Bar Tab” will leave Her New Best Friends at home this time. Smelly Kelly’s Plain High Drifters –The SF Bay area’s own rootin’ tootin’ fever-whippin’ honkytonk outlaws. Guaranteed to make you grin as they salute the Knights of the Highway. Speedball Tucker – SF-based fast-paced hard-edged tRucker band. Don’t miss ‘em! The Widows – Coming out of mourning for this debut appearance, these six women have been wed to a wide variety of bay area bands, including Ramona the Pest, Yard Sale, Loretta Lynch, Pickin’ Trix, the Hanes Family, Bermuda Triangle Service, and more. No more double nickeling with the better half for them – it’s triple digit ride all the way. Stiff Dead Cat – Sonoma county funkgrass porch-punk, on the road for this one. The Pickin' Trix – These two Oakland femme fatales’ songs will have you alternately teary and clenching the wheel in stitches- their lyrics might suggest that their road rage has been crippling, but they suck it up with a crooked smile and plenty of crude jokes.

With Treasure Mouth Ensemble with Beth Lisick, led by John Shiurba

John Shiurba is leading a large ensemble in the realization of the late Matthew Sperry's composition "Treasure Mouth." Sperry's score calls for a Jurassic form of karaoke and includes a sketch of a circa 1972 overhead projector with explanatory notes for musicians and vocalists to improvise as fast as they can to karaoke lyrics written live. In this performance the writer is local author / artist Beth Lisick and the karaoke backdrop will be lit by a magic lantern, the archaic movie projector of choice for phantasmagoria. with Eli Crews [bass]
Matt Lebofsky [keyboard]
Loretta Lynch [vocals]
Scott Rosenberg [reeds]
Joe Rut [guitar & vocals]
and Alfonso Alvarez [lantern]

Admission to this show includes a feast of pre-Hanukkah latkes washed down with pre-Winter Solstice mead covered up by pre-Christmas peppermint sticks. about music by the eyeful a small part of the Creative New Music Series tended lovingly by Luggage Store Gallery, Music by the Eyeful features inventions in visual music: from musician-filmmaker collaborations to optical instrument inventors to performative projectionists, and experimental work that highlights the sonic properties of visual art and the visual properties of music.

Loretta Lynch "Light" - the ladies of Loretta Lynch will be playing this one w/o the menfolk this time. We'll miss our friend Jimmy Sweetwater! January 15th of 1988 Jimmy Sweetwater rolled into San Francisco from the swamps of Florida with a handful of harmonicas and a washboard and he hasn't looked back. Since then Jimmy has played on better than 39 albums and with countless bands. He's played San Francisco's dank bowery bars and the City's largest stages not to mention being the House Harp at the fabled Albion during it's heyday. Now, Jimmy is looking forward to New Orleans and giving us a chance to look back at his time here and the many great band's he's played with. So please join us an evening of great music, great friends and a chance to swap great memories. Let's give this tall glass of water a sweet farewell….
