Misogyny and Other Miss-Fits!
Lyrics from many jazz and blues tunes reflect less than ideal, (and in some cases, overly ideal) impressions of the female sex. With humor, mitigated by just the right amount of annoyance, we will have fun with these tunes and many others as we traverse the landscape of “women in song”. The fantastic jazz tune Girl Talk, (lyrics by Bobby Troup, music by Neal Hefti), and Bacharach's Wives and Lovers are just a few songs featured in Kay's “misogyny” set.

A portion of the proceeds will go to women’s rights organizations.

Numerous luminaries played there back in the 70s and 80s -- Dave Black, Dick Hadlock, Robin Hodes, Burt Bales, and so many more.

Of course, the real reason to come here is the music -- a hot little rock 'n roll band playing all your moldy oldie faves for the tourist grind! Quoth drummer Rich Young, "Why is it called the Gold Dust? Because all the nuggets are gone!" So who needs nuggets when they can hear music like ours???

So did we, until we discovered Axum East. Great food, full bar, no cover, and some of the hippest music in town. Ok, we're biased... but check out this review in The Wave, "The Bay Area's Best Entertainment Mag":

Traditional Ethiopian is delicious, filling, spicy, healthy, sloppy, mushy, slippery and sultry. It's designed to be shared without utensils, which makes it the perfect communal or intimate date affair. And... the whole experience is set to live jazz in one of the hippest, most authentically renovated spaces in all of San Francisco.
(We especially like the part about "torchy vocalist Cathy Felter...")

The ELVIS SHOW: A Rock 'n Roll Party!

"Well it's one for the money... Two for the show... Three to get ready... Now, go cat go!" Mark your calendar for the new ELVIS SHOW: A ROCK N' ROLL PARTY! A familiar face on the San Francisco cabaret scene for the last few years, Bradley "Memphis" Cotton appears with his rock n' roll/blues group, The Beale Street Band. Cotton, who was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee (hence the nickname "Memphis") put together the show as a tribute to the King of Rock N' Roll - Elvis Presley. The evening will feature a lineup of hits from the Las Vegas phase of Elvis' career.

The Beale Street Band includes "The Dapper Tapper of the Ivories" Gary Neuman on keyboards, Dan Keller on stand-up bass, and Memphis Cotton himself crooning a la King. Familiar tunes will include Blue Suede Shoes, Heartbreak Hotel, Hound Dog, All Shook Up, and many, many more. Memphis Cotton gives the audience a glimpse of Elvis' hometown with a walk down Beale Street to hear the songs that launched rock n' roll and rewrote American music history. The show is sure to please blues, rock, and cabaret audiences alike.

Disaster! Memphis' flight has been delayed... the big show (tickets sold out!) is postponed... stay tuned!

A familiar face on the San Francisco cabaret scene for the last few years, Bradley "Memphis" Cotton appears with his rock n' roll/blues group, The Beale Street Band.

The evening will feature a lineup of hits from the Las Vegas phase of Elvis' career.

The Beale Street Band includes "The Dapper Tapper of the Ivories" Gary Neuman on keyboards, Dan Keller on stand-up bass, and Memphis Cotton himself crooning a la King. Familiar tunes will include Blue Suede Shoes, Heartbreak Hotel, Hound Dog, All Shook Up, and many, many more. Memphis Cotton gives the audience a glimpse of Elvis' hometown with a walk down Beale Street to hear the songs that launched rock n' roll and re-wrote American music history.

The ELVIS SHOW: A Rock 'n Roll Party!

"Well it's one for the money... Two for the show... Three to get ready... Now, go cat go!" Mark your calendar for the premier of THE ELVIS SHOW: A ROCK N' ROLL PARTY! A familiar face on the San Francisco cabaret scene for the last few years, Bradley "Memphis" Cotton has formed a rock n' roll/blues group called Memphis Cotton and The Beale Street Band. Cotton, who was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee hence the nickname "Memphis", put together the show as a tribute and birthday celebration honoring the King of Rock N' Roll - Elvis Presley. The show takes place on Tuesday January 8th - Elvis Presley's Birthday!

The evening will feature a lineup of early Elvis hits performed by Memphis Cotton and The Beale Street Band - a quintet consisting of "The Dapper Tapper of the Ivories" Gary Neuman on keyboards, Chad Tracy on guitar, Dan Keller on stand-up bass, Riccardo Schneider on drums, and Memphis Cotton himself crooning a la King. Such familiar tunes will include: Blue Suede Shoes, Heartbreak Hotel, Hound Dog, All Shook Up, and many, many others. Memphis Cotton gives the audience a glimpse of Elvis' hometown with a walk down Beale Street to hear the songs that launched rock n' roll and re-wrote American music history. The show is sure to please blues, rock, and cabaret audiences alike. Fans are invited to dress-up in 50's attire or as the King himself to be placed in a drawing to win Elvis CD's and DVD's.
