Bird & Beckett
is both a great music venue and an outstanding book store.  It is one of my favorite book stores ever - and I grew up hanging out at Cody's, Moe's, and other great Berkeley book stores.  The owner, Eric Whittington, is a big supporter of live music.  The band will be:  Greg Sankovich on keyboards, Lincoln Adler on sax, Randy Odell on drums, and Kurt on bass.   Glen Park is a charming neighborhood that still feels like San Francisco.  There are a number of cafes, bars (hello, Glen Park Station bar!) and restaurants nearby, and it's close to the Glen Park BART
station.

"...KURT'S ability to take you on a journey from the deepest waters of the Caribbean to the funky alleys of the urban jungle in one listening makes him a truly gifted original in my book."  - Chris Cortez, Announcer, KCSM-FM
