Imagine Seeing John Lennon's Piano. 'Cuz That's the Only Way You're Going to See it.

Posted By on Thu, Aug 9, 2007 at 12:21 PM

We at All Shook Down have learned that John Lennon’s piano is touring around the nation. This significant Steinway which Lennon used to compose “Imagine” will now be seen by the masses, except San Francisco. Why, you ask? Because the piano is appearing only in areas of the nation that suffered events of tragedy, having already made its way to the somber grounds of Viginia Tech, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, and even the Memphis Motel. Although well-intentioned, is this fair to us San Franciscans? Shouldn’t benign areas be able to cherish this historical relic as well? Doesn’t the Great 1906 Earthquake count?

I’m getting all verklempt. Discuss amongst yourselves.-p

  • 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.'"
