A New Era Begins…
Hello TLC extended family!!
Well, it’s been a long, stressful year of searching; but after a couple near misses….
WE FINALLY HAVE SIGNED A LEASE FOR OUR NEW SF LOCATION IN NORTH BEACH!!!
What’s exciting is this is right across from Cobb’s Comedy Club and Bimbo’s; and a Cable Car stops right in front! (How SF is that?!!!)
I was originally hoping for a new home within the Mission or Financial District; but there was nothing that met our requirements. However, when I saw this space in North Beach, and the owner was amenable to our price range; I knew we’d found our new long term home!
We still have a number of hurdles to jump through to get this thing open, but with your support and our partners in the City of San Francisco; we’re dreaming of starting shows in the Spring/Summer of 2022.
So… WOOOOO-MO’FO-HOOOOOO!!! Thanks for sticking with us in these times of change, and I can’t wait to see you all in the new space!!!

FRIDAY, October 29th: Fynch Meep featuring Nick Pim & Yedmondontic with guests Emily the Whistling Wonder and Sam the Tap Dancer
Nick Pim is a jazzy folky guitar player with weird melodies and compassionately honest lyrics. He is tender when he sings, however, every so often, he surprises the room with a dead-serious shout.
Yedmondon spends their days indecisive over whether to make filthy Electronic Music or sweet soulful tunes about shepherding. Subsequently, both realms are straddled elegantly. Nylon-stringed guitar, professionally trained voice, and hilarious subject matter.
