Are you going to be in San Francisco tonight? Then get the hell out of the house/hotel/Happy Ending Spa and roll over to Cafe du Nord (2170 Market Street). Dear closepersonalfriends the Ex-Boyfriends are having a record release party for their new album, Line In/Line Out, which they’re dropping digitally (duh, they’re in SF) and also on old-skool vinyl (duh, they’re in SF), but not on CD, because, um, eww.
But wait, there’s more: not only do the Ex-Bfs put on a great show, but there’ll also be three other bands rocking the stage: The Bruises, The Shondes, and Excuses for Skipping — none of whom I know personally, but any friend of the Ex-Boyfriends is a friend of mine. (That’s something I’ve said in my everyday life, too: I don’t believe in cutting off ties to anyone who’s has his/her tongue on my genitals, even if they do leave the cap off the toothpaste.)
But enough about my nads. Doors open at 8pm, and the show starts at 9pm. There’s a $10 cover, which is possibly the best deal in town for seeing four rockin’ bands on one stage, so what more do you want, cheapskate? For you need-to-know types, there’s way more info at the Ex-BF website.
