It’s true. Highway 1 to the north of us is now fixed. You can now get here from the north (SF, Monterey, whatever) just like the good ol’ days.
It feels like V-J Day down here; I just saw a giddy sailor reeking of gin plant a big sloppy one on a very attractive dame.
And while it’s true there’s a slide to the south, by heading over Nacimento Rd., your Big Sur commute will only be lengthened by 20ish minutes.
So. Back to normal (ish)
Exhibit A: we’re having a show this Saturday!
Jascha Hoffman and Spiff Wiegand w/ local Zack Salaz (who is incredible.)
It’ll be a wonderful intimate evening of most excellent acoustic music.
Admission is a mere $5-10 donation. Check out the mothership for info.
Also check out this nice article from the Monterey County Weekly.
Hoffman is a San Francisco journalist and songwriter whose debut album, “A Cure for Sleep” has been lauded for its “deceptively simple, deeply weird pop songs” and “down-tempo philosophical musing, romantic longing and infectious harmonies.”
He’s been compared to artists such as Sufjan Stevens, Magnetic Fields and “Leonard Cohen without the attitude,” while his partner Wiegand has been likened to diverse artists such as Hank Williams, Buddy Holly, Hot Hot Heat, Devo and They Might Be Giants.
So roll up – happy days are here again!
