Just As Long As Alice Doesn't Show Up in a Tube Top

  • Fruit forward: Lynch's upcoming CD.
It promises to be a multi-dimensional Boomer blowout when a founding member of Berkeley's Delicious Revolution goes all blues rocker. On Wednesday, October 7, at the Great American Music Hall, wine import maverick and a hobbyist musician/tunesmith Kermit Lynch will perform joints from his soon-to-hit CD Man's Temptation. Backing musicians include a guitarist who's jammed with Fleetwood Mac, a keyboardist for Rod Stewart, and another guitarist who's made his axe wail for the likes of Bruce Hornsby and Bonnie Raitt.

But blues-rock session players won't be the tastiest things in the theater. Besides the delectable jamming, the evening promises delectably jammy wines from Kermit's import biz, as well as a menu designed by Alice Waters, his longtime friend. Proceeds benefit Waters' Chez Panisse Foundation. Considering that regular kitchen offerings at the GAMH include nachos and beer can chicken, Waters' menu should be a rare delight (for $125 a pop, it should be).

Buy tickets online from the Great American Music Hall. And just in case you'd prefer a Buffalo chicken wrap to, say, Provencal fish stew, the venue's regular menu will be available, too. Rock on.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
