Here’s us the last time we played the vaunted Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco. We’re even better looking now. Come catch us there on Thursday, September 25, along with excellent local bands the Jaunting Martyrs and Fritz Montana–doors are at 8:30, and we go on at 9:00. Say you heard about it through the website and we’ll give you a free copy of C’mon Thunder. Oh, and here’s the Facebook invite.
On Monday, September 15, at 8pm, Thunderegg—in full-band acoustic incarnation, featuring James on his suitcase drum kit—returns to Osteria in San Francisco for some delicious dinnertime jams.

Every time someone wanted to buy it, I had to apologize and tell them it was just for display, and that I could mail them one from San Francisco, and blah blah blah. But finally in Oklahoma City, it was made known to us that
At Vino’s in Little Rock, KC and Will played acoustic sets along with locals Rod Bryan and Kevin Kerby, both of whom were members of the legendary Little Rock band Ho-Hum. And as it turns out, Rod and Kevin hadn’t seen each other in a while, so we were the unknowing catalysts of a reunion of sorts. It was a fun night.
You may be surprised to learn that this street, where our gig at Taffy’s of Eaton (“The Music Mecca of the Universe”) was, is called . . . Main Street.
