A Season in Hell
A Season in Hell #158: Where Is The King Of Love?
January 20, 2014 @ 8:00pm


We have made it once again through yet another glorious Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day! And what a day it was. How do you celebrate this day? I for one took time to meditate on the glory that is the message of Dr. King.

What a man.

And what a show I have for you tonight. (great segue, huh?) I start out with a tribute to the man. Some Nina Simone, followed by Max Roach and Abbey Lincoln. Try not to shed a tear, OK? I then follow it up with some pre-punk that I had left over from last week. Check out that last set, with Billy Holiday into T Rex!!!

This Thursday night at The Chapel on Valencia is the triumphant return of Wooden Shjips. For any longtime listener to my show, you're no doubt aware of my love for this SF psychedelic quartet. This is going to be a real treat, as they rarely appear to, well, um, appear anywhere local. Tickets may still be available. Get to this show!

Now on to the goods.
