"480 Minutes" - New John Doe

Today we have pairs of tickets to give away for tonight's Loquat show at Bottom of the Hill. If you are going to be in San Francisco tonight (Friday August 26th), check in via e-mail or IM when you hear a Loquat song during today's show and you might just win yourself a pair of tickets to see them play with Stripmall Architecture and Light FM at Bottom of the Hill.  Buy advance tickets here.

If you like stand-up comedy with your live music, head over to Snob Theater at The Dark Room tonight for live music by The Blank Tapes and Jascha vs. Jascha, plus comedy by Comedy Central's John Hoogasian, Josef Anolin, Anita Drieseberg, and Phil Johnson.  Advance tickets available here.

As if we here in San Francisco needed more choices for tonight, Tapes 'n Tapes, Art Brut, and Chain Gang of 1974 are rocking the Independent, and early in the evening John Doe will be performing songs from his about-to-be-released new album, Keeper, at Amoeba Music on Haight Street (6pm).  We'll be debuting songs from Keeper during today's program.

Today we are again offering up a great sounding 128kbps stream of BAGeL Radio.  If you are listening with good headphones or speakers click here and the even sweeter-sounding stream will start playing in iTunes, or copy and paste the URL ( into your favorite music player.
