Fun with Neko 

Wednesday, Jun 29 2011
Dear Neko Case, after you're done blissing out the crowd at the outdoor park show, here are some things San Francisco might do for you. (Besides having brung you your pals the Dodos.) You could go on a whale-watching boat trip, although eight hours is probably more time than you have to spare and does your harmonist, the silver-voiced Kelly Hogan, really want to do that? She would probably like Vice Palace, the gay hippie musical, but the dudes in your band -- are they ready for the amount of swingin' dong our beloved local production dishes out? Perhaps it would be easier to talk those brilliant musicians into seeing the “Wicked Plants” show at the Conservatory of Flowers. Which is near the Academy of Sciences which contains Claude the albino alligator btw. But surely your whole intelligent, poetical, rooty-country entourage would enjoy the San Francisco Mime Troupe's 2012: The Musical, in Dolores Park all weekend. Try the salted caramel Bi-Rite ice cream, Neko! It's one of the only things we know of that's as good as hearing your songs.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
