Yes, this is the first place the White Stripes ever played....
Wed 8/15 - Barbara Manning,
Denise James, Americans
- A veteran of San Francisco's vibrant pop scene, Barbara Manning has
played in a host of Bay Area groups, including SF Seals and World Of
Pooh, and released several stunning solo releases. Barbara as you have
rarely heard her before...Energized by the punky energy of her new trio
Thu 8/16 - Black
Rebel Motorcycle Club, PAIK, The
Dirty Shame - From LA on Virgin
Black Rebel plays hard-edged, guitar-strewn music with a hint of '60s
psychedelia and a fairly large amount of Britpop influence thrown in.
PAIK provides a giant, swirling maelstrom of textured,cerebral
soundscapes exploding from an image and light induced environment that
offers harmonic bliss to those willing to take the step........
Fri 8/17 - Queen
- Queen Bee is back and better (and louder?) than ever. Karen Neal
(Inside Out, Thrall) is joined by Rachel May (Broadzilla) and Adam
(Godbullies) for powerful and intricate glam punk stylings. Thrall
intends to bring you its tightly woven sludge rock enhanced by the
maniacally theatrical rantings of former Godbullies frontman, the Rev.
Sat 8/18 - Junk
- THE FINAL SCHEDULED SHOW AT GOLD DOLLAR!! - Junk Monkeys combine
great songwriting, powerful hooks, power-pop sensibilites, and punk
rock energy. One of the bands that kept me interested in live music,
and helped inspire the creation of the Gold Dollar. Hentchmen return
with their unique high energy rock and garage gems. Another band that
has a long history of doing it right, always giving it all they've got
on stage. Long time fans may remember a show at Finneys with 249 (my
old band) opening? Ok, maybe not. It was back in '93 or '94?? Climax
Divine seems to be finally getting the recognition they are due. This
"experimental rock" band submitted the first demo to the Gold Dollar,
and we didn't book them at first, because the tape was almost too good
to be believed. Must be some kind of studio trickery - but no, they can
do it live. Innovative stylings and virtuoso playing. Ok - that's it!
Thanks everyone for all of your support over the years! -Neil
