I’m the luckiest DJ I know. I got to interview the love duo that makes up San Francisco’s Love Jerks!!! The last time I saw Rebecca Garza-Bortman she was the better third of Happy Fangs (sorry Michael…love ya), and the last time I saw Bryan Bortman, he was rockin’ out with Scissors for Lefty. Little did I know at that time that these two were worshipping one another from afar. Not only did they meet and fall in love, but their wedding was epic!
Now they have their own band, Love Jerks. The came on last Monday night to talk up their Valentine’s Day show at the Rickshaw Stop. Have you seen their Facebook Page? Have you seen the promotional videos they have made for this gig? These two are the future; you better get on the bus now! They have a new LP out Million Movies (that’s right, VINYL!), which they were kind enough to donate…no payola here, folks. We’re straight on the up and up…now. Buy their music here.
They come on during the second hour and we have lots of fun. Check out the music and the interview, where I really don’t hold back. How many couple have been in bands together just to watch their love come crumbling down? My money is on these two to make it big and to make it last.
