NICK WATERHOUSE (at the Verdi Club)
This is the album release for Nick Waterhouse's debut album!

Nick Waterhouse plays R&B music like it's new again - raw and rhythmic and vital, without irony and shy of revivalism. Conceived in the bedrooms, MUNI commutes, and DJ booths of San Francisco, and finally birthed in his native, all-analog studio in Southern California, the self-produced 45 single "Some Place" has caught the ear of the modern listener. After a sell-out pressing and coverage from the likes of The San Francisco Chronicle, LA Record, Aquarium Drunkard, and XM Sirius radio - including play on Lou Reed's own show - he has taken to performing with the Tarots, a rough n' ready group of guys and girls. The two-horn, three-girl and rhythm section ensemble brings to life the sax-driven sound of Waterhouse's particular brand of American music.

"Self described as a 'midnight-hour R&B shake-fest' the self-produced debut of L.A. based Waterhouse, backed by the Turn-Keys, is an eerie R&B rhumba found on the flip with the torrid saxophone of Ira Raibon trading fours with the rest of the group. In short, “Some Place” cooks." --Aquarium Drunkard
DJ Carnita (Hard French)
DJ Primo (Oldies Night)
"Primo is one of San Francisco's preeminent soul men (with a feminist heart). He's one of the city's main DJs for slow jams, oldies, and other bits of Motown magic that get folks crowding the dive bar dance floors in the Mission and the Tenderloin. Just to keep it interesting, though, Primo also gets the disco ball spinning for Ferrari Party at Triple Crown. He's a backwards looking record collector with a drool-worthy stack of vinyl and a knack for throwing unpretentious parties that get real popular real quick." --SF Weekly
