KZSU playlist for Friday, Feb. 20, 3:00 to 5:15 p.m.
The upcoming week is jam-packed with promising live-music shows, including a few very cool ones outside the normal purview of my show. (I’m thinking of the Scatterbrain Jamboree, a benefit for the SF AIDS Foundation that’s being put on at Thee Parkside tonight and tomorrow.)
Also setting up plans to host Le Quan Ninh and Michel Doneda next week — two musicians from France who will be in town to perform some modern classical stuff in the sfSound Microfestival (details at sfsound.org.)
- The Club Foot Orchestra, a ’90s Bay Area phenomenon, is reconvening at Amnesia on Sunday night as “Orchestra Nostalgico,” playing Nino Rota music. It’s a show I’d mentioned briefly here.
- Opus Spongebobicum got mentioned here, and I’ve played it quite a bit on-air. This time, I borrowed a trick from fellow DJ Red West and played a few tracks in succession, to give people a chance to hunt out the Spongebob theme in the variations. Whether this counts as “fun” is an exercise left to the reader.
