But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Thursday, June 16 – 7:30pm
Tony! Tony! Tony!
a neighborhood party
with the Larry Vann Trio!
(Second set at 9pm, after the game!)

The Glen Park merchants celebrate the neighborhood with a FREE BEER! party on the third Thursday of every third month, and this month, the guest of honor & delight is Tony from Critter Fritters.

No live stream, no cover charge! Just come down to the shop & party with your neighbors!

Tony is a neighborhood icon of the first water, one of the jewels in the Glen Park tiara! And what would your darling pets do without him, we ask!

And the trio tonight is a great one! Groove merchant Larry Vann is a Bird & Beckett favorite, whether it’s with his own long-standing trio with Tim Landis on guitar and Michael Warren on bass, or in his frequent dates with the New Squatoolas and other great bands. He’s a Bay Area legend with a storied history in the biz. And he is, in fact, the Groove Merchant! Tonight, Adam Gabriel (Hank Ballard and the Midnighters) is on bass.

No cover charge tonight & absolutely no obligation to do anything but enjoy yourselves and mingle with your neighbors!

Feel free to bring food & drink to share, and if you’re the generous sort, bring some serious bucks to throw in the bucket for the band. Cash is king at Bird & Beckett! Leave your apple juice in your phone tonight!

Glued to a barstool till the last basket? Can’t fault that! But scoot over to the shop after to celebrate the Warriors, toast Tony & enjoy the trio’s second set!

Nothing could be finer than to be in Glen Park carousing with the neighbors this Thursday night!! Mind the books, though. They ain’t coasters, you know!

Don’t even care about the Warriors? How posh of you! We won’t tell… Join us at 7:30 for a very exclusive gathering of the Glen Park In Crowd! The first set and the best champagne is for you!

Gigging musicians! You have nothing to lose but your lack of a collective voice to achieve fair wages for your work!
The IMA can be a conduit for you, if you join in to make it work.
