It was a perfect evening, as the title mentions, to melt away the stress. Our small group was very low key and laid back. And, I was home in time to write this blog post. After we were seated, I looked around to take in the scene and decor. There were typewriters and framed pages of old newspaper, an old movie camera, and various other vintage items. I also noticed a stage. As I was questioning the reason for the stage, a gentleman with a bass walked past us and right up onto the stage. The rest of the band started filing in after him. One of the band members, the drummer, was dressed in a suit and a fedora. This, of course, caught my eye. I asked him if I could take a photo with him. He was obliging.
I did not catch the band's name. But, I did hear that this was the first time they've played together in seven months. So, maybe they'll play a regular gig at Local Edition. If you find yourself in San Francisco, be sure to check out one of Bourbon and Branch's many bars. You won't be disappointed.
