kimchee and ramen, brilliant

Looks like someone forgot to tell the ohsees that they were playing at the Press tonight, so consequently they are not playing at the Press tonight. That really sucks. Maybe I will go see the Mantouls, who knows? I was really, really looking forward to that show. I guess Agent Ribbons are still playing? How was that show at the Stag?
I give thumbs up to this play. Only 22 bucks for a ticket, so it's as much as seeing two crappy movies, and do you really need to see the eye or 27 dresses? Plus, you can get a brew on the Delta King and bring it into the theater with you. The next play this company is putting on is Sam Shepard's "Fool for Love", which I'm stoked to see.
I also give thumbs up to Japantown in SF. I went to Sapporo-ya to get ramen.
They offered kimchee, natto ramen, which is a pretty unusual combo. The natto didn't add much, but kimchee in ramen is a great idea! It was really garlicky and the broth was delicious and not too rich or too salty. The pork was tasty, too.

Yet another case of a smaller band trying to get hype for their show by falsely promising that a bigger band will be headlining. Nice move Agent Ribbons.

The stag was super fun.
The whole show ended with the Four Eyes playing and Rock The Light scatting with a drunk dude from the crowd who's teeth kept slipping out.
They also feature a selection of drinks made with an energy drink called Banzi. I drank something called a sweet tart shot made with it, as well as forcing it on others, it made my face feel weird
and hot.

Agent Ribbons are one of the few local bands that have a draw on their own. I seriously doubt they made up a lineup to fool people in to coming out. Probably just some sort of miscommunication.

Yay Sapporo Ya! I used to stop there frequently when I had to ride home alllllll the way out to the outer Richmond. It was a little oasis of calm and perfect food. I'm starving now, thinking about the sweet tofu udon.

I also heard that the Oh Sees not playing tonight was a simple miscommunication. They probably just got their days mixed up or someone forgot to remind them that they had ANOTHER show here, right after the las tone. It's still a bummer.

Man, I could use a bit of that Sweet Tart right now. The Four Eyes played the songs off their first cassette in order. That was before the scat off.

I couldn't make it to Woodland & convinced myself I missed the Four Eyes covering the classic City Rock hit "She's So Stacked". I didn't miss that right? Right?
