Crow Crash Radio, Actual Cafe; Oakland, CA 9/28/12

Last night Crow Crash Radio played at the lovely Actual Cafe in Oakland. Located on San Pablo Ave., near Berkeley, Actual Cafe is a fun, funky little joint. It seemed like they had a "cast of characters", local residents who hang out there a lot. It reminded me of similar places from my youth. Crow Crash played a nice, long, loping set of our Raga-billy Blues.

Crow Crash Radio Wedding gig, 9/1/12

Crow Crash Radio had the honor of playing at the  reception portion of a wedding yesterday, at the Acqua Hotel, overlooking Pickleweed Inlet on Richardson Bay. While I can't really claim Crow Crash Radio to be the ideal reception band (we could never play requests), we had fun and were, if not hostilely received, tolerated and perhaps appreciated by a few.

I had a particularly good time watching the fog from the Pacific as it rolled over the hill of Muir Woods and into Mill Valley, as Andrew gesticulated at his theremin. Priceless.

 There is nothing or no one more beautiful than a bride on her wedding day.
