SF Station Blows It Up

1. Dan the Automator plus Chali 2 NA (Jurrassic 5), Casual of Hieroglyphics, A.G. of D.I.T.C, and Common Market, live onstage @ Mezzanine, San Francisco, November 30, 2006

The Dan The Automator presents 2K7 tour stopped at Mezzanine last Thursday with a slew of special guest stars like Chali 2NA of Jurassic 5, Gavin of the band Dredg, Casual of Hieroglyphics and A.G. of D.I.T.C it was one hell of a show. Performing with a live band Dan whipped the crowd into a frenzy with his style of electronica, hip hop and rock, dropping beats that would even make the dead dance and scream.

2. Googol Bordello, live on stage @ The Berkeley Community Theater, Berkeley December 2, 2006

Walking towards the Berkeley Community Theater I was pretty sure that the people in line were not here to see Googol Bordello but the headliner Primus but I knew that they were going to be in for a treat once Googol hit the stage. Man was I right; with their Gypsy Punk sound they made the seated crowd rise out of their seats and stomp their feet. These New Yorkers won a whole lot of fans that night because as I walked back to the front door I turned and saw people dancing in the aisles. So step out of the box and take a peak at Googol Bordello.


3. Les Claypool of Primus, live on stage @ The Berkeley Community Theater, Berkeley December 2, 2006

Primus is back with its original line up and a new album and on last Saturday I saw this in person at The Berkeley Community Theater with 3500 other people. Les Claypool’s metronome-like bass playing is something to see and as always something to move to. The boys performed songs from past and present and rocked the crowd.
