Sad news: the show tonight at Club Cafe featuring A.A. Bondy and Justin Andrew has been postponed, reportedly due to a hand injury. Been there. Feel better, Bondy dude! Stay tuned here for a reschedule update.
Other things that are going on tonight that might keep you busy: Juston Stens and the Get Real Gang play with Ursa Major at the Doo Wop Mansion, a house venue in North Oakland that you'll want to search around for a little because I probably shouldn't write much about it; River City Rebels are doing their thing at 31st Street Pub; Long Time Darlings frontman Brett Staggs throws down at Bloomfield Bridge Tavern; and David Daniell and Douglas McCombs (of Tortoise) play at Garfield Artworks.
Also, if you were stoked on seeing Smashmouth at the Think Pink event at Altar Bar on Tuesday, I'm sorry to say they've cancelled. Word has it they couldn't get up from underneath that huge pile of "All Star" royalty checks, so they had to back out. The event, which is sponsored by our sister media outlet Q 92.9, still features THE GIN BLOSSOMS, who rule. So adjust accordingly.
