SF Jukebox

This is an attempt to evaluate and document the jukeboxes of San Francisco's bar world, and the shows that occur at our venues. Consider it a study in San Francisco music appreciation.

A Slave to Sound


SF Jukebox goes to SXSW


So yeaaaah... it's been a while. But we're headed to SXSW Interactive and plan to stick around for enough of Music that we hope to catch some free daytime shows. Any suggestions?

Second Place Tastes So Good

If we didn't win anything, my week would

As it turns out, they have pub quiz every Monday. This is where we spent

No, Really, FUUUU Outside Lands


Pub Quiz Night 1: 540 ClubQuiz Master: ScottTeam Name: FUUUUUU Outside LandsTeam: Cas, Jason, Martin, Sean-Michael, Koshi, JessThe TeamWe meant to arrive at 9 but got there at 8:30, delayed by drinks at Elixir (don't ask). Trivia usually starts at 9 but apparently the owner asked the quiz master to start early because of Outside Lands, which makes little sense for a Richmond bar. But Scott was a

One Week of Pub Quiz


With the school year a week away, I decided to end the summer with a very nerdy bang. So, for the next week, SF Jukebox is SF Pub Quiz. We are doing a trivia night every weekday this week, beginning with last night's quiz at 540 Club in the Richmond. The schedule looks like this:Sun - 540 Club (Richmond) [Recap]Mon - LookOut (Castro) [Recap]Tues - Edinburgh Castle (Tenderloin) [Recap]Wed - Napper

One word: Pavement


We're going to see Pavement tonight at the Greek Theater in Berkeley. Apparently the Stockton show was awesome, so let's hope they don't phone it in tonight.

Real Sippin' Whiskeys @ 9th Annual Sleepless Nights


Er yeah we haven't been going to many shows lately. The last one was Thao for the 3rd time, I guess. BUT this Friday night is the Great American's annual Sleepless Nights tribute to Gram Parsons, and a local country band I absolutely love, The Real Sippin' Whiskeys, will be playing. I think I first saw them play at El Rio for Shit-Kickin' Memorial Day and I swore I had pictures but can't seem to

Refuge in the Quarter at Johnny White's


Johnny White's733 St. Peter St., New Orleans [Map]Total Spent: $? (It's difficult to say after my 10th beer.)Post by KoshiIn most bars on Bourbon Street you'll readily find a fine selection of cheap shitty beer, rancid well booze, drunk frat boys, and the ever-present smell of puke. You'll also find the latest and greatest digital jukebox bringing you, on demand, every cliché song about Bourbon

Most Appropriate iPod Dock Ever


San Francisco chef Ryan Farr, of 4505 Meats, is the master of the pig roast. We had the honor of chowing down on our second Farr pig this past weekend at the wedding of two friends. Ryan's iPod dock is worth sharing (photo courtesy of the bride, Jenny Oh):

Thao, Revisited


Thao with the Get Down Stay Down have a new album coming out next week and I did a quick Q&A interview with her for 7x7. Check it out: TI Exclusive: We Get Down with Thao. This is me awkwardly saying hello to me after a show at the Independent.Buy the album. It's good.

3 Aug 2009: Sonic Youth


3 August 2009Sonic YouthThe Independent628 Divisadero St (btwn Hayes & Grove) [MapThanks to Koshi, we were able to snag 4 of the 500 tickets that sold out within 2 minutes of going on sale. Writing a coherent review of this show can be done using two words: fucking awesome. San Francisco's Sic Alps opened and, while they weren't horrible, they also weren't that interesting. All three band

John Vanderslice: "Romanian Names"


SF indie pop darling John Vanderslice's latest album, Romanian Names, is out today and he and the band will throw their album release party tonight at Rickshaw Stop with the Morning Benders at 7:30 ($16). NPR is streaming the album here and I found this clip of him playing the title track in the studio for KEXP's Bay Area Broadcast. Here's my post about it over at 7x7's Clamour blog, where I've

Found Online: A Tour of Daptone Records


I'm completely obsessed with Daptones Records, an indie soul label cranking out amazing new music from modern-day soul acts, most notably Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings. I was looking for some pics of the outside their studio, an old brick house in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and came across a video tour of the studio posted on Wire to the Ear.No, it's not in San Francisco, but it is awesome.

25 Feb 2009: Stephen Malkmus


25 February 2009Stephen MalkmusGreat American Music Hall859 O'Farrell Street (btwn Polk & Larkin) [Map]I went into this show with low expectations, not because I thought it wouldn't be good, but because I'm a huge Pavement fan and Malkmus has long moved on to his Jicks material. Going to a Malkmus show hoping to hear a set riddled with Pavement's greatest hits is a great way to set yourself up

11 Feb 2009: Gutter Twins w/Dave Rosser


11 February 2009Gutter Twins w/Dave RosserThe Independent628 Divisadero St (btwn Hayes & Grove) [Map]Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs, Twilight Singers) and Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees) have been playing together as the Gutter Twins since 2003, but they've collaborated on various projects since 2000. I didn't expect it to be sold out but I should have known better. Dulli has a following of very loyal

Musicians using Twitter


When I'm not going to shows and drinking too much, I have an actual day job working at Institute for the Future. Part of my job is to track social media use, and since I'm obsessed with music, I try to leverage that in my work as much as possible. Today I came across this Google spreadsheet of artists using Twitter. As with many major artist MySpace pages or blogs, the "big" ones are more likely

Q&A with Thao Nguyen for Noise Pop 2009


I recently interviewed Thao (of Thao with the Get Down Stay Down) for this year's Noise Pop Festival. It was one of the most fun conversations I've had with an interviewee. The piece is up on Thao's profile page on the Noise Pop site here. [Band's official site and their MySpace page.] This is the super edited version of the interview. We talked for a half an hour and got into a discussion of

Sketchfest Salutes The State


Koshi and I went to the Sketchfest tribute to The State yesterday at Herbst Theater, and while it wasn't "music" per se, it was on MTV long enough that I think I can justify posting about it here. And as the cast pointed out, the Spin Doctors came up at least once every episode. While many think The State is one of the stupidest shows on MTV in a time when MTV still showed music videos, I liked

2 Dec 2008: Sea and Cake


Best Expected Best Show of 20082 December 2008The Sea & CakeGreat American Music Hall859 O'Farrell Street (btwn Polk & Larkin) [Map]We've seen Sea and Cake play twice here in SF and we learned the first time around that they always mix their new songs with songs the long-time fans want to hear. As far as many people are concerned it all sounds the same, but most of them admit it all sounds good.

Happy Election Day!


In honor of this historic Election Day, I've made a digital mixtape. Play it from the embedded player or the regular page player here.
