House 530 opening soon

September 25th, 2011

House Thai

The perpetually vacant spot on Valencia between Blondie’s and Limon finally removed their plywood to reveal… yet another Thai restaurant! If at this point you’re wondering whether there’s more Thai restaurants or Thai people in San Francisco, I think it’s safe to bet on the restaurants.

As Grub Street reported several months ago, this spot was previously a punk venue with a strange history.

Yet another punk show at 16th Mission Bart

June 17th, 2011

Yesterday evening we had another little punk show at the 16th Mission Bart stop. Unlike many previous shows, this one was right in the middle of things; not much buffer zone between the audience and the band.

I wasn’t there when they finished up, but I hear that things ended quite early.

Another punk show at 16th Mission Bart

September 1st, 2010

A rather loud all-girl band from Olympia was playing at the 16th and Mission Bart stop this evening. Here’s a few pics.





Food Not Bombs punk show at 16th and Mission Bart plaza

November 13th, 2009

Once again, I got off Bart and found a punk show! Today’s show was somehow part of Food Not Bombs, and the bands came all the way from Brooklyn(!) for the show.

Can’t say I know who these bands were. After the first couple songs I was so deaf I really couldn’t hear them announce their names.

This guy seemed to be involved in the organization of the show. He announced that he turned 72 today and he’s still “punk as fuck.”

Impromptu punk show at 16th and Mission Bart plaza

September 1st, 2009

Today (Aug 31st) I arrived at the 16th St. Bart at around 7pm and walked right into a punk show. There were at least three bands rotating with 2 song sets. Unfortunately I have no idea who these bands are or what the event was called, if anything.

I managed to get a few crappy iPhone pics for your enjoyment.

All three bands used the same equipment, including this PBR microphone.

Due to the rotation, I saw this band first and last.

The drummer in this band had a very long and very blond rat tail.

The singer in this band moved much faster than my crappy iPhone camera could handle. But you go to the impromptu punk show with the camera you have — not the camera you might want or wish to have at a later time.

Dancing at a punk show isn’t normal. But on meth it is.

It ended exactly like you would expect.
