Yes, the Hot Lunch/Accordian place is on Bayshore near Alemany. Hey Sam, didn't your car get wrecked outside that place one night?

That place was a dump. Bad part of town. But the early Song Fight! shows I went to there were fun!

As for next year, if it's local you know I'm in (as brody or something). I liked the place in Berkeley last time.

It was Erin's car, but yeah, when we had a show there when it was called The Accordion there was indeed a bizarre car wreck incident. It was freaky!

If my memory is correct, that car crash was at a different space called the Werepad. I think Ken Flagg hooked us up with them.

Bay Area, you say? I guess I've got six months or so to get back in the game. Will see what I can do.

I'm all for that. Make the acoustics bad enough and nobody can tell how badly I'm playing.

OK, so, dates. Let's get the process started of trying to figure out some dates. I'm ready to start contacting the Berkeley venue from a few years ago to see if they have availability. What works for folks? It looks like we've most commonly had it in August, which also I personally prefer, but it's been in July a bunch too, and sometimes June or September. We're going to aim for two nights, Friday and Saturday night.

June 12-13 is no good for me, because I'll be traveling for a wedding. The surrounding weekends probably aren't ideal either, but I could make them work. I don't know of any other conflicts right now.
