We. Are. Californians.
Well…we WILL be. As soon as the Craigslist Gods say that it is so.
Housing unavailability aside, we consider ourselves HOME and we have plenty of upcoming Bay Area gigs to help us plant our roots:
Saturday, March 23rd: Winemaker’s Pourhouse. Livermore. 6:30-9:30pm. Duo. This is a small wine bar full of warm people. The atmosphere is cozy, the libations are delicious, and the company can’t be beat.
Friday, March 29th: Surf Spot. Pacifica. 8-10:30pm. Duo. This will be our first show at Surf Spot. It’s a super beach/surf-style casual hangout in Pacifica. On the weekends, the music is outdoors with the fire pits, volleyball courts, and rolling lawns. It looks like a great place to soak in the coastal culture.
Saturday, March 30th: Local Edition. Market Street. 9-midnight. Full band. This is an underground gem below Market Street. It’s full of candles, antique type writers, and authentic newspaper pages from some of the city’s biggest events down through the ages. The drinks are a work of art and the vibe is very, very sexy. We love bringing the band in there.
Wednesday, April 3rd: Local Edition. Market Street. Happy hour show: 5:30-7:30pm. Duo.
Thursday, April 4th: Off the Grid. Berkeley. 7-8:30pm. Duo. Off the Grid is a roving gourmet food market. It’s a farmer’s market-type atmosphere that specializes in food trucks and caterers. There are several Off the Grids in different parts of the bay area on different days of the week and at different times of the day. The food is exceptional, the experience is casual, and it’s a celebrated community event, wherever it’s happening. Click the link to get a good idea of what it’s all about.
Monday, April 8th: K.C. Turner Acoustic Showcase at Osteria in the Presidio. Duo. This is a super intimate dinner and show experience at Osteria. The event is from 7-10pm with no cover and no age restriction. Each artist puts on two 25 minute show cases. We will be sharing the bill with Gurf Morlix. It will be a great evening of music and food in the Presidio, but space is limited so to guarantee seating, please make a reservation with Osteria: (415) 771-5030.
Wednesday, April 10th: Blondie’s in the Mission. 9:30pm-1am. Full band. Blondie’s is a sloppy favorite in the Mission. It was voted “Best place to get your date drunk in one drink”. Mad street cred right there. It’s small, the sound is awesome, there’s a dance floor, the martinis come in pint glasses, and there’s a little strip of seats right on the sidewalk for plenty of proper people-watching.
Saturday, April 13th: Surf Spot. Pacifica. 2-5pm. Quartet. Same great beach spot but earlier in the sunny afternoon, and with more members in the band. This just keeps getting better.
Monday, April 15th: Off the Grid. Belmont. 7-8:30pm. Duo.
Saturday, April 20th: Local Edition. Market Street. 9-midnight. Full band.
Friday, April 26th: Surf Spot. Pacifica. 8-10:30pm. Duo.
Saturday, April 27th: Winemaker’s Pourhouse. Livermore. 6:30-9:30pm. Duo.
Sunday, May 5th: Off the Grid. Larkspur. 12-1:30pm. Duo.
Monday, May 6th: Off the Grid. Belmont. 7-8:30pm. Duo.
Wednesday, May 8th: Blondie’s. The Mission. 9:30pm-1am. Full band.
Friday, May 10th: Armando’s. Martinez. 9-10pm. Trio or quartet.
Saturday, May 11th: Local Edition. Market Street. 9-midnight. Full band.

Tuesday, May 21st: We leave for Alaska and tour Anchorage, Homer, Cooper Landing, Talkeetna, Denali, and possibly Seward until June 11th! Alaskan tour dates are posted under “Tour Dates” above, as they are confirmed. Then it’s back to the bay area for about 3 weeks of shows before our Montana tour. Hope to see you out there, friends!
