It's a State Radio Weekend :: San Francisco, CA. Sat May 22 & Sun May 23.

The San Francisco Chapter is going to have a State Radio-filled weekend ...

Please stop by to say hello to us on Saturday night, May 22, at State Radio's show at the Independent. Opening the show is Kelley James. Doors are 8:30, tickets are $20. The event is 21+.

I really like the venue's write up of the band:
For generations of American bands, the music and the message have been inextricably linked. Word and deed are one in the same, and the only thing more moving than the rousing call to action is the song that transports the words like a shell casing. Following the hard travelin’ path of Woody Guthrie, these bands sing about ordinary people in extraordinary ways and can turn the world inside out with three chords and the truth. These are the tenets by which State Radio’s Chicoree Stokes, Chuck Fay, and Mike “Mad Dog” Najarian are driven, and they once again flex that strength and sense of purpose on their third album, Let It Go. But this is no soapbox symposium.

On Saturday, join our Chapter out at Ocean Beach, Stairwell #17, from 10am-12noon for our regularly scheduled Beach Cleanup. We'll be joined by State Radio, their service organization Calling All Crows, and the band's Bay Area fans. No need to RSVP, and all ages are welcomed to help us pick up trash off the beach! We'll provide bags, gloves, and a little lesson about marine debris.

This is not affiliated with Surfrider, but you can also join State Radio on Monday night for an event co-sponsored by Facing History and Ourselves, as well as Asylum Access that will feature one of the authors of the book Half The Sky.

Looking forward to this weekend - I hope State Radio plays this song. Awesome video just came out yesterday ...
