Holding It Down in the South Bay with Bill Daniel

26 11 2012

San Jose has long had a very active and dedicated, but a very elusive punk scene. All ages (and otherwise) shows have carried on in California’s third largest city largely unnoticed by the local press. Flyers occasionally show up at record stores and on lampposts-the ones with those creepy yellow San Jose lamps. It’s a sprawling metropolis that could hide several scenes. Many venues have come and gone, including Vic’s Garage, Nickel City, Homestead Lanes and, um, the Avalon. It seems that the Silicon Valley’s king city may now have a new punk homebase.

30 North Third Street in Downtown San Jose (DTSJ) is the home to The San Jose Rock Shop – downtown’s only musical instrument outlet. Somewhat less visibly it is also home to an all-ages, members only club that is very much run in the spirit of 924 Gilman Street. At the same address, through a different door, lies the recently opened Seeing Things – Gallery/Books/Zines. The space opened up with an exhibition of the Tri-X-Noise photo exhibit of regular contributor to this site Bill Daniel. You have just hours left to see this exhibit of very large photo prints, its last day is TODAY, November 26th!

This article pretty much wouldn’t exist without a recent posting by Gary Singh in the most recent Silicon Valley Metro.

POC Zine Project “Race Riot!” Tour

27 09 2012

The POC Zine Project was started by Daniela Capistrano in 2010 with the goal of making zines by POC (People of Color) easy to find, share and distribute. The “Race Riot!” tour is a traveling zine exhibition/seminar/workshop that hits 12 cities in the US, happening now through October 7th. Click here for a list of tour dates, and check out their website for news from the road! MRR coordinator extraordinaire Mariam Bastani will be joining the tour soon (gotta get the November issue done first though) so beware!!

Bruce Roehrs’ memorial birthday show!

24 08 2012

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!!
