Spirits of the Red City
750 Natoma St, San Francisco
Wednesday, September 25th, 2013
6:30 doors, 7pm music
This is the show of the year for 750 Natoma, and we are ever so excited to make the official announcement. We are quite looking forward to having you over, serving you tea, and presenting the best music you will ever hear, hyperbole aside.

Corpus Callosum’s Avery Burke performs at the Corpus Studio this Friday with Shivering Timbers (OH), Miwa Gemini (NY) and Grannia Griffith (NM), music at 7pm, $5-10 suggested, none turned away for lack of funds, free fine tea:
With fantastically full 60’s-folk-rock arrangements and beautiful lullaby-like vocals, Shivering Timbers is by far the coolest new music that we’ve come across in an embarrassingly long time. This family band is spot-on, and we honestly expect that they’ll be too famous to even talk to us by this time next year. But in less than two weeks we will have them trapped in our rehearsal space for a very special one-night-only affair.
By some incredible coincidence, we are being graced by a visit from our good friend Miwa Gemini from New York City that same night. Everything about Miwa is wonderful - not “wonderful” in the way that you would describe a cupcake or a sunshower, however, but “wonderful” in the way you might use in reference to a tortoise with seagull wings, or one of those ethanol-soaked-animal-brains that Stephanie Stewart Bailey is curating in her room.
Co-headlining this show will be our own Avery Burke. If you have not yet heard Avery perform solo (or close to solo), he is absolutely amazing when the rest of us aren’t drowning him out, so be sure it will be a treat. (I’m being quite serious that Avery’s solo performances are incredible, so don’t miss this chance!)
And lastly, our special guest is Grannia Griffith of New Mexico’s Cloacas, a fantastic young songwriter that we’re delighted to have up this way.
How about some Corpus Callosum fanfic to brighten your Friday evening?

When Qarly came into the room, Avery said “Qarly, I’m so glad you’re here! We have to play a show at the Governor’s mansion in seventeen minutes, and I can’t find anyone!” His hair was a frantic nimbus of bronze around his chiseled features, and he was wearing a stained fedora he’d got from a hobo in New Brunswick and a suit that had been made out of several other suits. He hadn’t shaved, and he looked like a Greek god after an all-night bender. One of the good ones; probably Apollo or Phoebus or somebody like that. Qarly brushed her strawberry blonde hair out of her aquamarine eyes. She dropped her extra-long rocket skateboard by the door of Fortress Callosum, the complex of underground tunnels they’d built beneath the San Francisco Bay and protected with lasers they’d built out of scrap steel, and trained sharks.
