Freddie Gibbs and Madlib at 1015 Folsom

Posted by GPGarry | Posted in Music Events, Nightlife | Posted on 23-03-2014


There will be only one place to be for lovers of great underground hip-hop in San Francisco this Thursday, March 27th, and that is at 1015 Folsom for a performance by Freddie Gibbs and Madlib. The somewhat unlikely pairing of emcee and producer will be performing in support of their recent collaborative release, Pinata, released on March 18th, 2014. The album features a star-studded list of guests, including such hip-hop staples as Raekwon, Earl Sweatshirt, Danny Brown, Scarface, Ab-Soul, Casey Veggies, and Mac Miller, and was preceded by three Madlib/Gibbs EPs released over 2012 and 2013.

If you need to know more about the artists to be performing, Freddy Gibbs is part of a new generation of street-oriented rappers, having been produced by such top hip-hop beatmakers as Red Spyda, Just Blaze, Buckwild, The Alchemist, Polow Da Don, and Collipark. The Gary, Indiana native is known for bringing a grit and grime to the game which has faded in recent years, while still maintaining a modernist appeal. Madlib is one of the top hip-hop producers of all time, having worked with such top-notch artists as Erykah Badu, J Dilla, MF Doom, Snoop Dogg, and many more.

St. Patrick’s Day Bar Crawl 2014

Posted by GPGarry | Posted in Drink Events, Holiday Events, Nightlife | Posted on 10-03-2014


We all know that if there is one holiday that personifies drinking culture more than any other, it is St. Patrick’s Day, so what better way to spend the Irish holiday than with a bar crawl? That is just what we suggest you do for 2014 with the St. Patrick’s Day Bar Crawl, going down this March 15th in San Francisco. Over 1,500 people joined in for the crawl last year, meaning that this should be a pretty major event and one that you will not want to miss if you love St. Patrick’s Day mirth

Wristbands are to be picked up at Circa after 1:00 PM, and the crawl starts at 2:00 and runs until 6:00. Participating bars include Eastside West, Cornet Club, Stock and Trade, KT’s, and of course Circa. There will be drink specials at all participating bars for those with wristbands, including $5 Jameson at Eastside West, $3 Heinekens or Bud Lights at Cornet Club, $5 Whiskey Gingers at Stock and Trade, and $2 10 ounce draft beers at KT’s. There will also be an after party at Eastside West for the revelers who are still going, featuring high-energy music from popular Bay Area DJ Traviswild.
