    ALL AGES show at The Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco, CA on Thursday, January 29th, 2015. Doors open at 7PM, and the show is at 8PM. Tickets are ONLY $10. PAMELA PARKER and her band... Pamela Parker's new album, Evolutionary Process, is up for Album of the Year in Vancouver BC and she has opened for bands like rock n'roll Hall of Famers HEART.  She is one of the hottest San Francisco stars on the West Coast and is building a strong following on the East Coast.  She is an operatically trained vocalist and monster lead guitarist as well as a classically trained pianist and gifted songwriter. In other words, the total package. Pamela's talent has allowed her to cherry pick the very best musicians to form an all-star rock band. She has studied everything from Classical to Heavy Metal, Soul, Jazz, Pop, Blues, Rock, Funk, & Folk and fuses it into a stunning vocal style all her own.The music is classic high energy rock n'roll. Powerful soulful vocals with an uncanny knack for hooks matched with great guitar riffage and excellent song craft are the hallmarks of the Pamela Parker sound. In 2013 she released her debut Rock album Evolutionary Process (including 11 originals composed by Ms. Parker) to critical acclaim. Her live shows are electrifying as she is able to stretch her musical talents and blow peoples minds with her incredible vocals, lead guitar prowess and stellar band mates. Her commanding stage presence and rock & roll image are just the icing on the cake! Pamela Parker's band features Tom Finch (Big Brother & The Holding Co.) on guitar, Chris McGrew (Griddle) on drums, Spence Murray on bass, and Ryan Hickey (Stu Allen's Mars Hotel) on keys. The other featured artist of the night is none other than: BRAD BROOKS Brad Brooks is that rare quadruple threat of writer, player, singer, and performer. His songs combine the melodic sensibility of Elvis Costello, the best instincts of Wilco and Brian Wilson, along with the orchestral sophistication of Queen. Brooks is rooted in a kind of Victorian California romanticism, and with the release of his record "Harmony Of Passing Light" he joins his peers with the best work of his career. His gift for melody and his soaring vocals remain the most immediately impressive traits of his music. Brooks’ voice can wail like a blue-eyed soul singer, whisper plaintively, croon with just a touch of twang, or soar through the most demanding melodic acrobatics,...Brooks has found the essence of his own unique voice, and been one of the Bay Area’s best-kept secrets for years.
