Wildeboar Electric Trio is Eenor's new power trio with Hassan Hurd on drums and Sam Gulisano on bass. They take the classic trio format further with rollercoaster swing and sway, their sound is monstrous and on the verge, their grit is fierce and their gold is butter smooth.
Eenor is a many dimensional multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, and performer who has been received enthusiastically by audiences all over Europe and America. He's enjoyed many musical adventures from touring Europe with Plainfield (an infamous S.F.punk band), to studying with Indian Sarod master Ali Akbar Khan, to rocking the nation with Les Claypool's Frog Brigade. You've heard his guitar on the soundtrack of comedy central's Southpark for years. Eenor also recently toured worldwide for many years with The Yard Dog Road Show... an innovative cabaret cartoon ride through America's past and future.
Sidecar Tommy is known for beats – both digital and drummed. With roots steeped in The Yard Dogs Road Show, the Extra Action Marching Band, and a smashingly successful run as a co-producer, co-founder and multi-instrumentalist in electro-gypsy band Beats Antique, Tommy Cappel's solo work is where you get over 30 years of his experience in beats, unfiltered.

It's been called a lot of things: April Fool's Day, St. Stupid's Day, the First Day of Spring, the birthday of the infamous medieval Japanese Emperor Go-Saga. The list goes on and on, and all of its timeless titles have been obsequiously bequeathed with passionate palaver and the noblest of triviality. But one curious promulgation stands alone. In 2006, the (then) mayor of San Francisco, Gavin Newsome, put the firmest of fealty on this most auspicious day by declaring April 1st Gooferman Day (with an International Circus Appreciation Day corollary). So it was written, so shall it be!
So it is... on April 1st, Trapeze Worldwide is mighty proud to welcome back to the stage The Klown's electrofunkrock musical adventure, THEE ONE, THEE ONLY.. GOOFERMAN!!!
This will be a bombastic no-holds barred banquet of beatitude with the original bohemian kings of klown-fi bounciness! Dress up in your finest and filthiest of formal folly wear and join us for a rare and celebratory episode of stylish absurdity!
Get in quick as THIS WILL ERRRUPT!

6. HOW WEIRD STREET FAIRE - 5.07.17
HOW WEIRD 2017
SUMMER OF WEIRD
Sunday, May 7, 2017
Noon to 8pm
Howard & 2nd Streets/
Downtown San Francisco,
The 18th annual How Weird Street Faire will be a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, and a modern manifestation of the next generation of creative countercultures. Turn on, tune in, and be weird.
FB PAGE: https://www.facebook.com/HowWeirdStreetFaire/
Centered at Howard and 2nd Streets
Downtown San Francisco,
$20 for a Magic Button
For more information visit http://HowWeird.org/
There will be dancing in the streets at 11 stages of world-class electronic music, spectacular performances, fantastic foods, unique vendors, visionary art, inspiring creativity, and peace technology exhibits.
We join together to celebrate peace, affirm our unity, generate waves of joy, and expand our consciousness.
Bring flowers, bring costumes, bring love, bring peace!
The legendary soundtrack to the Summer of Weird will be provided by the CCC, Symbiosis, SomaFM, Muti Music, Enchanted Forest, Northern Nights, Pulse SF, Temple Nightclub, Mountain Lion Hi-Fi, Underground Nomads, Come-Unity, Santa Cruz Cypher Sessions, and more
The theme for 2017 is "Summer of Weird", paying tribute to the cultural pioneers that inspired us and paved the way forward.
There are lots of exciting additions to the faire this year!
New this year is Green Alley on Tehama Street, opposite of Art Alley. Green Alley is an exhibition of cannabis related products, ecuational opportunities, workshops, and a dub music stage.
There will also be a new Circus Alley on Minna Street, featuring aerial performances by Skyhigh Odditorium and a circus lounge by Cirque du Soleil.
The stages are being mixed around this year, so expect the unexpected.
Art Alley will be overflowing with sensational delights this year, filling Tehama Street from 2nd to 1st Streets. There will be a new interactive craft area from San Francisco's Museum of Craft and Design. Surrounding that will be live and exhibited artwork and local art vendors.
At either end of Art Alley will be music stages from historic San Francisco cultural institutions. At 2nd Street there is ambient music from SomaFM, online radio pioneers who will broadcast their music during the day. At 1st Street there is downtempo to psytrance music from the CCC, the artist collective which gave birth to the How Weird Street Faire and the World Peace Through Technology Organization. Otherwise known as the Consortium of Collective Consciousness. At the CCC stage, there will be a historical exhibition showcasing the story of one of San Francisco's great counterculture moments, from 1994 to 2001, and now continuing at How Weird 2017.
A REVOLUTION YOU CAN DANCE TO!
