Music & Celebration Info from Facebook:
Lavay Smith will be hosting a second jazz & blues stage featuring legends like Jules Broussard, Denise Perrier and Freddie Hughes.
We’re totally excited to be backing original Flamin’ Groovie Roy Loney and original Beau Brummels vocalist Sal Valentino, along with many other well-knowns and lesser-knowns you’ll be happy to hear. We’ve got the Kingston Trio, Kelley Stoltz singing Bobby Freeman’s “Do You Wanna Dance?” Amoray will be doing a tribute to underground disco icon Sylvester. Jorge Santana – original member and leader of Malo – will perform Mission District lowrider anthem “Sauvecito.”
We’ve also got Bill Kirchen from Commander Cody with members of Red Meat, Mark Kozelek of Sun Kil Moon, Tim Bluhm from The Mother Hips, and Andy Cabic from Vetiver. I’m even starting a rumor that I’ll be singing “Willie Mays Is Up At A Bat”.
There will be a tribute to 415 Records with Steve Barton from Translator, Debora Iyall from Romeo Void and Mark Pistel from Consolidated. We’ll re-imagine Journey with a choir and re-imagine the Dead Kennedys with a classical string octet. And yes, Jello is singing “Let’s Lynch The Landlord.” Penelope is doing the Avengers anthem “American In Me.” That’s a lot to melt down. I’m not too handy with the bullet points but I hope this gives you some kind of idea. Oh yeah, also on board as MC is Ben Fong-Torres.
There also promises to be a courtyard of carnival chaos with circus performers, magicians, stilters (is that a word?), marching bands, contortionists and much more. After dark, the DJ’s will take over. Expect light wand acrobats, a burlesque revue and an over the top light show. Plus all manner of cabaret weirdness.
100 Years of San Francisco music. A lot to sink your gums into.
