    Walnut Creek, CA, US | 8:00pm

    This is a great place for the serious beer geek and for the more casual beer drinker - like me. On the outside it's an anonymous modern commercial building. Step inside and you feel like you're in a totally different place - someplace like the Pelican Inn near Muir Woods, or an old North European pub. Øl just received Diablo Magazine's "Best of the East Bay" award for "Best Beer Bar." They have a little bit of food, but don't expect to eat dinner here. This time the band will be Tom Griesser on clarinet and saxophone and Robin Lewis on guitar, Kurt on bass.

    Martinez, CA, US | 7:30pm

    Kurt on upright, Greg Sankovich keyboards, Lincoln Adler sax, Michaelle Goerlitz percussion - all of whom are featured on my most recent recording, "I Got One More!". Armando's is one of my favorite places to play and to hear other musicians. It's a great room - the acoustics are excellent, they have a good sound system with good people running it, and I love the look of the room itself. The folks who run it, Roy Jeans and Eloise Cotton, are among my favorite people. They're keeping a great scene alive. People sometimes think Martinez is too far away, but it's a heckuva lot quicker to get door to door from a place in Oakland to Armando's than it is to drive into San Francisco, look for parking etc. Plus Martinez is a charming and historic town.
