Recorded front and center, right on the barricade. This was a hell of a show with so many great bands. Since there were so many bands on the bill, each band got 15 minutes and there were short set changes with the great Bryan Kehoe acting as MC during most of the changes. I'm not going to write up too much because there would be too much to mention, but this was a great show for a great cause.
-Since I am unfamilar with most of the bands' songs and sets were so short, I pretty much just tracked the show by band. The few exceptions are the bands whose songs I know so I knew where to split it up.
-M.I.R.V. also played between The Avengers and Limbomaniacs. Why is their set not included? Because I am an idiot and somehow pressed the stop button while they were on stage and missed their entire set. They are my favorite band on the bill (besides Les), so I am pissed at myself for this. They played Cool, Million Pound Bomb, and Monkey Boy. I hope a source of their set pops up...
-I had to change SD cards during Pearl Harbor's set, so I missed much of the set, unfornately. There is part of the first and last song on there, though.

Ed Jennings has long been a champion of musicians and their craft of playing before live audiences as a collaborator, promoter, and bar owner.
Eddy�s long and storied career traces back to working for Bill Graham Presents in the late 70�s. He subsequently became the music manager at the Rock n Bowl and the I-Beam in Haight-Ashbury along with Jacks Bar in San Francisco featuring live music. He was also a tireless collaborator and music coordinator of the Haight Ashbury Street Fair for over 20 years. Later, Eddy opened Jacks Sugar Shack in Los Angeles where he created a home for legendary blues artists and American roots music, hosting the long-running Ronnie Mack�s Barn Dance.
Eddy�s striving ethic was to respect musicians and treat them fairly. His motto was �feed them, give them a place to sleep, and always pay them�. Over three decades, Eddy has enthusiastically celebrated artists and provided a welcome forum for struggling, up-and-coming bands, established artists and forgotten legends, occasionally performing with many acts, including Touch me Hooker and Buzz in the System.
Please join us Friday, May 29th at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco to celebrate Eddy and his many contributions to the Bay Area music community. Les Claypool will headline the show, and will also be a part of a tribute set playing homage to Buck Naked, who worked closely with Eddy and was an inspiration to Les.
Also performing will be East Bay Ray (Dead Kennedys), Pearl Harbour, Penelope Houston (Avengers), Limbomaniacs, MIRV, the Mermen, the Jackson Saints, MCM & the Monster, Ted Zeppelin and more to be announced, plus special guests.
Like many of these artists, Claypool�s long time band Primus got their start playing local clubs like the I-Beam and the Nightbreak on Haight Street, as well as the Berkeley Square, before going on to multiplatinum success. Primus and most of Les� various solo and side projects over the years have included members of some of these other groups like Limbomaniacs and MIRV.
This event is for people who care about music and to honor one person whose commitment made a difference in the lives of many musicians and enriched our community. All proceeds will be collected by Sweet Relief and funds shall go towards helping Eddy in his battle with cancer.
