W*A*S*H (We're All Stars Here)
A LIVE night of Comedy and Music showcasing Bay Area talent -- 21st century vaudeville meets experimental variety show, every Thursday night at 7:00.
Conan Neutron is a musician, and the frontman and bandleader of the rock band Victory and Associates. He has released records, toured the United States multiple times and has done all of the things that independent bands normally do with that band as well as in Mount Vicious and Replicator.
The Beauty Operators String Band
San Francisco string band the BEAUTY OPERATORS play bluegrass, alt-grass, punk-grass, cry-in-your-beer-grass & the occasional 80s cover. Laid-back & fun with a front-porch kind of sound. High-lonesome harmonies mixed with original musings about modern life in San Francisco.
George Chen has finally found a proper outlet for his brand of sarcasm and self-deprecation. These traits were ill-suited to the other worlds he has occupied as a musician, writer, and filler of 1099 forms. As a promoter he has organized comedy shows on a moving bus, at a still-life drawing session, and inside a comic book store. As a musician he has played in the bands KIT, Boxleitner and Chen Santa Maria, and for the past 15 years he has run the record label Zum. As a performer he has appeared at Holy Fuck, Venice Underground Comedy, The Business, and the Porchlight Storytelling Series. Other credits: Jandek’s guitar tech.

The East Bay 3 (W*A*S*H house band)
The gents of the East Bay 3 have mastered telepathy, subliminal body language, and reflex training to sharpen their skills as accompanists. Want them to back you on "Billie Jean," done as a bossa-nova? Done. Want to stop on the chorus of a B-side by the Cure to tell your Robert Smith story? Got it. Want to sing "The Greatest Love of All" over a Sex Pistols riff? Roger that. Each week, new musical guests and audience members throw heavy objects at the EB3, and each week, some blood is left on the stage. The Rev. Gil Gilmartin, a former resident of Brazil, wears his thunderbass high; Kevin Seal, from Griddle and Pandora's music team, experiments on a Fender Rhodes; session drummer and studio wizard Adam White is widely known as The Most Followable Drummer In The Western Hemisphere. The EB3's motto? "The singer is always right."
