From 3:30 to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 14, join the full-band Thunderegg (Will Georgantas, guitar/vocals; Alex Jimenez, bass; Reese Douglas, guitar; James Sundquist, drums) for an unprecedented live-broadcast holiday rock ‘n’ roll show. We’ll be playing all your favorite Egg tunes, plus some you’ve never heard us play, in an intimate setting with great sound (courtesy of Dan Foldes). The whole thing goes over the Mutiny Radio airwaves live, with guest MC David Colón, and will be archived for perpetuity. We’ll be filming it, too.
There will be a brand-new cassette compilation. There will be beer. There could very well be Thundereggnog. And, we’re hoping, there will be YOU. Seating is limited—the place holds only 30-40 people. Be a part of a very special San Francisco musical moment…the ultimate pregame to your later evening festivities! (We’ll probably have an after-party ourselves, too, TBA.)

Thunderegg headlines this Wednesday night at the storied Bottom of the Hill (1233 17th St., SF). The West Coast Egg will be laying down some exceptional rock in one of the best-sounding rooms in the city. We’ll be joined by On Telegraph and Jared Cohen & the Future Proof. Show starts at 8:30 and we’ll be on about 10:30 or 11. This is not to be missed.
Thanks to the Egg’s touring violinist, Ken Matsuda, here’s a sweet overview of our adventures around Germany last July. The song, “I Turn Automatic,” comes from the first few minutes of our first show, at the Station in Püttlingen, before a crowd of 450 Saarlanders. It’s not perfect. But there’s something about that moment, when we were nervous and just starting out, that’s harder to replicate than playing it perfectly anyway. Two-plus hours and something like 30 songs later, we got the standing O. What a beautiful night it was.
