Please don’t send me twenty five options for dinner. Why don’t we just eat by the Boom Boom Room? Ok, 1300 on Fillmore looks good. You’ll meet me at work? Perfect.
Why does it take thirty minutes to find a cab in this town? Yes, baby, I know that there are hotels and restaurants that way but I usually find a cab over here. There’s one. You were right again baby.
1300 on Fillmore looks rad! Where do they put the bands? Behind the curtain? We should definitely check that out sometime. I wonder what “twenty minutes extra wait” for fried chicken means in a half empty restaurant on a Tuesday. Manhattan? Yes. Good wine too. Chicken is okay, but your fish is amazing. You always know what to order! It is nice to just sit here and shoot the shit. Excellent and friendly service.
Boom Boom Room is just up the block. Looks like those guys are rolling a joint in broad daylight and not even trying to hide it. Cops in this town will probably light it for them since they only have matches and it is windy over here.
Franziskaner is out? Ok, let me taste the Arrogant Bastard. Whoa! As bad as I remember. What about Stella? Out too? Is it a problem with the CO2 or something? How about Negra Modelo? Thanks. Yes, I got introduced to this beer by my cousin who likes it because of the name. Yes, I’ve told you that before. Good beer. Not as good as Bohemia though.
I wonder which guy is Justin. He said that he “might” be wearing sunglasses because his onstage persona demanded it. I’ll go talk to the band. Oh yes he’s in DVO. I’ll go ask those guys. Thanks.
Thank you for taking the time to meet with me! It is so cool that you founded livemusicblog.com. Did you live in New Orleans? Chicago huh? Nice! We want to visit. You have equipment for a podcast? Perfect! We want to get that going again. We should meet again to talk video and not be rushed, I agree.
What a long sound check. NVO does sound really good though. Hate to run, but we have to catch Electric Shepherd at the Hemlock. They played Brick & Mortar Music Hall earlier this month and had a nice write up in SF Weekly. Always easy to catch cabs here, another reason to love the Boom Boom Room.
Hemlock Tavern, Interior, Night. Me: “Who’s up next?” Doorguy looks at lineup on wall. Shouldn’t you just ‘know’? I mean you have one job here man. Yes, we’ll take earplugs, this place is crazy loud. I’ll get beer. I can’t believe that there is no one here and we get to sit right up front! Great band! Awesome set! Really glad that Electric Shepherd are SF locals. Want to see them again.
