The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen is a place that we’ve heard rumors about opening up this year in SF. The anticipation of an entire restaurant, devoted to this tasty bite has been killing our stomachs… Finally! May 28th was was their grand opeing. Since then, AGCK has been selling out of food everyday thus far. Grilled Cheese sandwiches have always been one of our favorite foods in life.
The location is right by 21st Amendment Brewery and is close to AT&T ballpark, a perfect place to grab some food and a beer. Head on over to The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen’s WEBSITE to check out the menu.
Elizabeth Street Brewery is a place that we have just recently found out about. They were just named the Best Microbrewery by SF Weekly. We haven’t had a chance to drop by there yet, but the first time that we do we’ll be sure to have plenty of coverage of photos of the beers of course. Make sure to follow their twitter account to find out when they are open to the public.
As mentioned earlier today, Gold Panda are on tour with Health and are playing in San Francisco tomorrow night at Slim’s. Prior to their show at Slim’s, they will be playing for Yourstru.ly at Robotspeak. The event will start at 5pm and there might even be some free beer to be had.
The Spanish band, Delorean is playing this evening at 330 Ritch for Popscene. The last chance that we had a chance to see them was at South by Southwest in Austin, TX but we didn’t manage to make it over. In the meantime at the show, Bill Murray was watching them and our buddies in Mondo Drag got the chance to meet him. Advance tickets are sold out for tonight’s show but tickets will be sold at the door. Make sure to arrive early as this show will be sold out. If you haven’t managed to see Delorean yet, check out this video to get an idea of what they are like live.
If you haven’t been to Bloodhound before, it’s in the SOMA district of San Francisco. The bar had a makeover from Double Dutch with the stylings of a cozy hunting lodge. Of course with that theme you have to have Big Buck Hunter! Check out photos from the event yesterday HERE.
SF Weekly’s All Shook Down blog just announced their first music festival that will be happening on Sunday July 25th in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood. The setup will have an outdoor stage and then there will be bands playing in nearby venues and bars as well. Word has it that there will be lots of beer and one can only assume that there will be plenty of local breweries that will have their stuff for sale. 18 bands have been announced so far and there are more to come, we’ll highlight a couple of our favorites to check out.
If Janelle Monáe performs anything like she does in this video, it should be an exciting show. She’s got the dance moves of James Brown and the style of Andre 3000 with howling vocals to boot. She’s playing an instore performance at Rasputin’s Berkeley store and opening for Erykah Badu at Oakland’s Paramount Theatre if you want to catch a sneak peak before she headlines San Francisco.
Fresh off tour with it winding up at a music festival at a winery in Sonoma, Citay are one of San Francisco’s hidden gems. They have a mix of angelic vocals with heavy guitar riffs mixed in with acoustic guitar. Sounds like it should be one of the most confusing bands to see live, but they manage to pull it off.
Neon Indian are the other headliner as well, but you already knew that. Tickets are incredibly priced at $8 each and there are going to be VIP tickets available soon for $40. Head on over here to get tickets.
Rooney managed a 2 song encore and peppered in tracks from their self titled release with Daisy Duke, If It Were Up To Me, Losing All Control, tracks from Calling the World featured When Did Your Heart Go Missing, I Should’ve Bee After You, Paralyzed and their most recent album Eureka covered songs such as Stars and Stripes, Not in My House, Don’t Look At Me. Highlights were the final song which was I’m Shakin’ which closed it out on an energetic note. The oddest song easily was Stars and Stripes which was a patriotic ballad that just was completely out of left field. Rooney has nothing but to be proud of and I’m sure they’ll enjoy their journey without a major label now.
Mates of State and Free Energy are coming to San Francisco for 2 dates starting tomorrow at Great American Music Hall. Mates of State are supporting their new album CRUSHES (The Covers Mixtape) which features covers by The Mars Volta, Tom Waits and Death Cab for Cutie. This is the cover they did of Daniel Johnston’s “True Love Will Find You In The End”.
Free Energy are opening the show and they came in the ashes of Hockey Night who used to be on Lookout! Records out of Minnesota and now 3 of the 5 members are in Free Energy and they moved out to Philadelphia. The boys are quite a live show and are moving up the ranks. Make sure to catch this show at this historic venue.
FYM hopes everyone has a great 4th of July and that you manage to make it home with all your fingers intact. Kelis was clever enough to name a song on her most recent album “4th of July” and of course we have to post it. She’ll be doing a tour with Robyn and Dan Black named the ALL HEARTS tour. They’ll be hitting up the west coast in Los Angeles at The Music Box and the Mezzanine in San Francisco.
