    I'd go, but I have a gig myself, all the way out in Poway!!!! (In case y'all don't know, that's out in the Boonies, north and west of San Diego).

    I'll be with ya in spirit, though!

    What kind of music do you play?

    We're the typical rock band with a female lead singer. We play all originals.

    NJL. Sorry, I don't have a Fax machine. I'll e-mail it...on the day of the gig. :p

    I don't go to gigs by ex-San Franciscans.

    Just kidding. Tear it up Big Willie.
     
  6. Aw, man! I can WALK there fom my house, but I'm going to be in OC for a concert on Saturday.

    Do you play in LA a lot? I'll come hear you next time if I'm free. Even if it means driving all the way to The Mint.

    We were slated to play the mint until they closed for retrofitting.

    We already have two more gigs scheduled, check the website.

    Right now, we're pushing this one, though.

    Jazzbo, I seem to remember you leaving SF before me;)...

  9. Beer?
    I only just turned 20. :bawl:
    Not that I like beer anyway...

    I also won't be in town then. I'm going to be visiting friends and family up in the bay area for that weekend.

    That's ok, Sheep Man. You've been to one of my gigs anyway.

    We do have a new set, though and we're better as a band.

    Did I mention I have a solo?:D

    I was gonna go even before you made the free beer offer... but I got a gig sitting in with a blues band that afternoon (playing for beer). If I can get out of there early, I prefer Newcastle, Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, ...

    Cool! I can't guarantee that I'll attend--I have to see what the boss wants to do Saturday night.

    If she's up for it, or says "You go ahead. I'll just stay home and relax," I'm there. ;)

    Where in Lake Forest, and what time? I am in San Clemente at "The Beach Fire" at 9. It's a fill in gig, not my regular group. If you are on before that, I'll try to stop by. If not, come to the Beach fire when you're done!

    The Gypsy Lounge is on the Corner of Lake Forest and Rockfield. It is in the same center as Wahoo's Fish Tacos and the more infamous Captain Creams.

    We are scheduled to go on at 8:30, but we are the first band and the sound guy is notorius for running late....we will probably go on at around 9...

    Where in San Clemente is the place you are talking about? I've never heard of it. Is it new?

    My first time too. It's off of El Camino Real and Del Mar. I guess I can't stop by, but add me to your mailing list. I have a light gig schedule this month, and might be able to make it out.

    Along the same lines, We are playing Silky Sullivan's in HB on the 23rd. We could stand to have a big crowd, so feel free to come out.
