The DeadbeatsThe Deadbeats formed during the Summer of 1994 on the notion they could pull off some reasonable Grateful Dead covers.  Soon it was apparent the band was on to something, a certain indefinable sound and feel that really captures the essence of a Dead show.

Though band members have come and gone over the years, Tom, Paul, and Gary have remained the core of the band, providing a solid continuity to the Deadbeat sound.

 

AchillesWheel_printAchilles Wheel is a high energy Roots & World Music / Rock & Roll band, featuring award winning songwriting, numerous stringed instruments, and more drums than you can shake a stick at.  The fiery epicenter of the Achilles Wheel sound is Jonny Mojo on lead guitar and vocals, surrounded by Paul Kamm and Shelby Snow on rhythm, bass, and vocals, and Gary Campus and Mark McCartney on drums and vocals.

If you love to dance and celebrate life, come see Achilles Wheel and make a joyful noise.

San Francisco Mime Troupe

 

Paul Emery Music and the Miners Foundry will present the San Francisco Mime Troupe in an outdoor twilight concert on Friday, August 26, 2016 at Pioneer Park.  The San Francisco Mime Troupe will open their 57th Season with “Schooled”, written by Michael Gene Sullivan and Eugenie Chan with music and lyrics by Ira Marlowe.  Gates open at 6:30 p.m., music begins at 7:00 p.m., and the show is at 7:30 p.m.  Patrons are welcome to bring lawn chairs as well as outside food and nonalcoholic beverages to the show.  No glass may be brought into Pioneer Park.  No outside alcohol is allowed.  Alcohol may be purchased at the bar.  Coolers, picnic baskets, backpacks, and bags are subject to search.  Tickets are $20 and are available online, by phone or in person at the Miners Foundry, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees may apply.

The San Francisco Mime Troupe creates and produces socially relevant theatre of the highest professional quality and performs it before the broadest possible audience. SFMT makes sense of the headlines by identifying the forces shaping our lives and dramatizing the operation of these giant forces in small, close-up stories that make audiences feel the impact of political events on personal life.

Schooled

Education.  It’s like the weather.  Everyone has an opinion but nobody does anything about it.  That’s how Lavinia Jones feels about her son Thomas’ new school, Eleanor Roosevelt High.  Decades of funding cuts have resulted in old textbooks, crumbling classrooms, and underpaid teachers, making Roosevelt exactly the sort of public school that has failed students time and time again.  Isn’t it time for something … efficient?  Efficient is exactly what Fredersen Babbit, from Learning Academy for Virtual Achievement (LAVA Corp.) promises to bring to the district.  New technology, remote learning, computer-generated teachers, LAVA promises to put the “virtual” in achievement!  But with kids learning from home, do we need all these empty schools?  And with privatization on the line, a Wall Street heavy hitter on one side, and a feisty octogenarian teacher on the other, suddenly the next School Board election is more about a hidden agenda than the open curriculum.

Are schools the last chance for democracy, or is education the  next frontier for profit?  Can we trust a politician’s public/private plan to replace an out-of-date system, or is there something even more sinister than privatization going on behind the doors of LAVA?  And wait = when did the hall monitors start wearing brown shirts and arm bands?  When it comes to the real plan for the future of education – and of our democracy – are we all about to get … Schooled?

Secret Agent 23 Skidoo

 

 

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present Secret Agent 23 Skidoo on Sunday, August 5, 2018 at Pioneer Park.  Secret Agent 23 Skidoo is a Grammy winning, internationally touring, purple velvet tuxedo wearing family funk phenemenon.  Combining the positive, primal power of hip hop with the surreal storytelling of science fiction, 23 Skidoo has concoted a potent potion that wows family crowds across the planet.   Grab the kids and come to Pioneer Park for this family friendly gathering of music and community!  Gates open at 4:00 p.m. and the show begins at 5:00 p.m.  Tickets are $10 for Adults, $7 for ages 3-17, and free for kids under 3.  Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees waived for purchases made in person or by phone through the Miners Foundry Box Office.

 

“Secret Agent 23 Skidoo has married the complex beats of Hip Hop with the magical world of kids.” ~ TODAY

“Nobody is making better ‘Kid Hop’ than Secret Agent 23 Skidoo.” ~ NPR:  All Things Considered

The ingredients of Secret Agent 23 Skidoo’s magic spells include reverence for the boundless mindstates of young children, respect for the culture and DNA of hip hop, funk and soul music, and a deep belief in the power of the imagination to change the world in positive ways, both personal and universal. If you can imagine a band with Jim Henson on guitar, Shel Silverstein on bass and PIXAR as the lead vocalist, you’ve pretty much got it. And if George Clinton and Q Tip stopped by the party, that might clarify things even more. Basically, if Dr. Seuss and Dr. Dre had a baby, it would be the music of Secret Agent 23 Skidoo. Nuff said.
