Concerts At The Brick Wall
John Alden of JA Photography has made a small venue site available to FFS for concerts. It's a homey 60 seat venue. We have had three concerts there during the past year before christening the venue The Brick Wall: Andrei Krylov, Russian guitarist; Draam duo from Sweden; Earl Rivard, Bay Area guitarist.
"The Brick Wall" has two concerts scheduled for January 2010:
DAVID ARTHUR BROWN from Barcelona, Spain the lead singer of Brazzaville will perform on Thursday January 7 at 7:30 pm. www.davidbrownshow.com
Patrick Contreras and friends will perform the music of Steve Ono on Saturday, January 23 at 7:30pm. (moved to Feb 27th)
Come see and hear what we're all about. The Brick Wall is accessed through the FFS office doorway at 2003 N. Van Ness Blvd. Contact Steve Ono at 266-4762 or firstname.lastname@example.org for scheduling info at the Brick Wall. Up til now we've been borrowing folding metal chairs. We have very little storage space, but we do need chairs--padded folding chairs. Here's a request.
