These are the fine gentlemen who comprise Thunderegg’s San Francisco chapter. Left to right: James Sundquist, Reese Douglas, Will, Alex Jimenez. The full band debuts Thursday, April 25, at the Lost Church on Capp Street; ensuing gigs include the beer garden at Hopmonk Novato on May 10 and Main Street Theater on May 11. After that, this lineup will have a bit of a hiatus as Will heads east, then to Germany—and these guys continue making their own excellent music in California. It’s been a pleasure making a racket with them.
The Volkswagen Caravelle van has been rented. This summer, under the auspices of the German-American Institute in Saarbrücken (thus making this a cultural exchange program), Will, Jake (bass), Ken Moon (guitar), and Ken Matsuda (violin) will take on Germany. More on this later, of course, but here’s what we’ve got going on.
Fri., July 5 – German-American Institute, at the Station, Püttlingen
Sat., July 6 – Down by the River Festival, Berlin
Sun., July 7 – Die Fabrik, Berlin
Weds., July 10 – Klienicum house concert, Ampfing

Last November (while I was recording “A Fix Exists”), super-talented music photographer Emily Sevin dropped by the four-track studio in my kitchen to take a few pictures; now one of them, plus many other striking shots of even more attractive fellow Bay Area musicians, is on display at Bazaar Cafe. It was a real honor to be up on that wall with so many talented people. Thanks, Emily.
I was out of town for a little while, playing a show in Austin, among other places, but now I’m back. In your kitchen. Making jam for you.
