Into The Future


"The new Hank’s will be on the second floor above the food park at Hill Country. It will be a stand-alone bar/venue with a much-improved sound system and slightly more space than we have now; it will remain open after the park closes for the day. I hope everyone will give the new space a real shot and know that I plan on continuing booking the way I always have, and we’ll do our best to infuse the new spot with as much of the spirit of the old Hank’s as possible. We are still sorting out an opening date, but it will be sooner than you think." -Lee Greenfeld, Dead Flowers Productions

She Is Tossed By the Waves But Doesn't Sink


LES SANS CULOTTES

The "Francophonique Tsunami" "Those Frilly Parisian Underthings" and "Seven-headed beast from the hard-scrabble streets of Menilmontant," Les Sans Culottes borrowed their name from the ill-clad (i.e., long-trousered) citizen- soldiers of the French Revolution. The band's sound is a melange of Gainsbourg, NY Dolls, Blondie, the Shirelles, and the Kinks.

Better Days


STEAK
THE JACK GRACE BAND
BOBBY COLE & THE RED HOOK HOBOS

Steak is founding members Erik Lieblein on rhythm guitar/vocals, Jack Grace on lead guitar/vocals, Stu Damm on drums, and occasionally founding member TJ Thomas on bass with Larry Cook and Daniel Garcia also sharing the bass chair. Their first fans developed from the Boulder, Colorado music scene in 1992 which included bands like The Samples, Big Head Todd and The Monsters Leftover Salmon and many others. The band played a "sarcastic latin/funk with everything including the kitchen sink kinda style" (Colorado Daily) and quickly developed a Colorado/West Coast underground group of followers. The word on their 'silly yet clever in a refreshing manner" (SF Weekly) stage show kept spreading and Steak began traveling California with the magical cult band, The Beat Farmers for a stretch. The road continued with a diverse pedigree of bands that included NRBQ, Uncle Tupelo, Aquarium Rescue Unit, Fishbone, The Funky Meters, Leo Nocentelli and Zigaboo Modeliste,  Steak got a tour bus and lived on the road for a few years, relocating to San Francisco and eventually basing themselves from Jack, Erik and Stu's birthplace of New York City. Steak is internationally renowned primarily for it's song, "Big Bear" which is featured in the climax of the Fox Searchlight comedy hit, Super Troopers (along with another Steak track, "Second To The Bottle").

Last Kind Words


Phil Gammage's style of roots and blues influenced songwriting and music has been compared to everyone from Elvis Presley to Chris Isaak to Scott Walker — or as the Trouser Press once wrote "...underwrought darkside Americana echoing Nick Cave’s fascinations minus the melodrama. Which might well make Gammage this generation’s Hank Williams."  Eight albums, several U.S. and European tours, and numerous songs featured in television shows and commercials have earned Phil a growing following and a steady hum of praise. His most recent recording the 10-song Used Man For Sale is an album of outstanding Gammage penned songs.
