Assistance with Cole Odin – Thursdays San Francisco local musician, club DJ, promoter, and overall music head Cole Odin Berggren is proud to offer his “Assistance” from 6-9pm, on the 1st & 3rd Thursdays of each month. Musically, you could hear everything from Holy F*ck to Father John Misty… Kendrick Lamar to Cobblestone Jazz… Patsy Cline to Tool… Rebolledo to Sinead O’Connor, in a mixed/beat-matched DJ format. Basically, it’ll rawk, roll, bang, twang, bump and jump through all genres, without causing whiplash from the movement.
While his show is most certainly focused on music, in it you’ll also hear social commentary, historian accounts, political rants, and comedy, gloriously comedic comedy. On occasion, Cole will include guests, be they fellow DJs (local or from far away lands), bands performing live, political commentators, comedians, or personable personalities… Hell, there might even be a kids show at some point. If you like what you hear and want to go deeper, you can catch him DJing around SF at clubs like Monarch (1st Saturday nights- admission free!), Muka (3rd Saturdays and 4th Fridays w/ Mike Bee), and other venues.

Barn Dance, the – Tuesdays 6 pm to 7 pm – hosted by Rusty Blades, Wrong Side Of The Road Joe, The Hankster and Shelby Ash- The 4 Barndance hosts are ethnomusicologists who spotlight the historical interrelation of American roots music: authentic country & western, folk, folk-blues, western swing, bluegrass, field hollers, mountain music, rockabilly & various rural recordings to bring the listener a greater understanding of these uniquely American art forms. In addition to thoughtful selection of seminal examples of these genres, the Barndance educates the audience about historical significance, narrative deconstruction, root influences & specific artist participation in the context of learning about the music & how it impacts other musicians & the culture at large.
Uncle Hank, Big Creepy Hoss, Six-shootin’ Shelby & Li’l Joe keep the steers in line, while horsin’ around the back 40, bringing smiles to the pretty ladies, kindly kin-folk, thinning the herd, herding the thin, saddlin’ up the Palomino, closin’ up the barn door before ridin’ out on the range into the sunset. Vittles are on the fire & the sarsaparilla not-nearly as cold as the beer, nor as effective as the Whiskey! Let’s rope up some good times, prairie dawgs!
