Stay tuned for the next B&B benefit party in Jerry Ferraz's backyard! Here's some video of the last one!
Sunday, August 11th – 7:30-10:00 pm
Classic, Outlaw & Honky Tonk
The Seducers have had a monthly gig at Bird & Beckett for three years, playing classic, outlaw and honky tonk songs by the likes of Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Bobby Bare, plus originals and a few from left field.
Look for the Seducers every second Sunday in San Francisco’s premier little bookshop/listening room. Bring a beer if that’s your inclination, but for one outing a month you’ll get a nice break from the barroom clatter that can sometimes obscure the beauty of these fabulous bits of American genius. You won’t regret it for a minute.
BYOB and kick back. It all makes for a lovely way to spend a Sunday evening before returning to the working grind.
Joe Goldmark, pedal steel guitar
Mitch Polzak, lead guitar and vocals
Hank Maninger, bass guitar and vocals
Kenny Owen, drums
$10-20 suggested donation. $5 for students/musici
"It is in doubt and not in faith that the salvation of the world is to be found. Faith is a delusion and a snare: a pitfall, a prison. It intimidates the intellect. With fear of eternal damnation religion crushes intellectual activity; with hero worship it destroys individuality; with hopes for the beyond it prevents the growth of ideals for the present. It makes of us a race of intellectual cowards; it changes but little if any our daily conduct toward each other. But doubt sets us free."
-- Job Harriman, 1902
