When Bruce Roehrs — singular San Franciscan, longtime Maximum Rocknroll columnist, and unabashed follower of savage rock ‘n’ roll — passed away in 2010, it incited an surge of support from the local music community. He was laid to rest in the San Francisco Columbarium. Today, his legacy endures. SYDNEY DUCKS, ROADSIDE BOMBS, and SYNTHETIC ID will perform this Saturday, August 25th, at Thee Parkside in honor of his birthday. All proceeds benefit the Bruce Roehrs Memorial Fund, and all attendees will receive a copy of Hammers, a record featuring Harrington Saints and Booze & Glory, released by Pirate’s Press Records in commemoration of Roehrs. MRR will be there too, of course, with copies of the Bruce Roehrs memorial issue in tow. See you fucks at the show!!
