So I then went to to the Noname Bar, but it was closed for a private party. Not to be detered, I went to the 2am club in Mill Valley.  I had a beer. But the crowd was kind of boring.  So I decided to go to the Sweetwater.  Believe or not I have never been to the Sweetwater, even though I am born and raised in Mill Valley. I was able to walk right in  and see the Wonderbread 5.  I have never seen them before.  I was surprised.  I thought they would be boring, but they played well.  They put on a good show and were really into their music. wonderbread 5wonderbread 5 wonderbread 5-9wonderbread 5-9 wonderbread 5-3wonderbread 5-3 wonderbread 5-8wonderbread 5-8 wonderbread 5-4wonderbread 5-4 wonderbread 5-6wonderbread 5-6 wonderbread 5-7wonderbread 5-7 wonderbread 5-2wonderbread 5-2 wonderbread 5-5wonderbread 5-5 wonderbread 5-10wonderbread 5-10

Freddie Clarke and Wobbly World at the Seahorse Sausalito https://jameswhittlesey.com/blog/2019/5/freddie-clarke-and-wobbly-world-at-the-seahorse-sausalito Wobbly world is a great show.  The band draws influences from all around the world.  But their focus is music from the Mediteranean area.

CimaFunk at Complex Oakland https://jameswhittlesey.com/blog/2019/5/cimafunk-at-complex-oakland I got the opportunity to shoot a great show.  Cimafunk is a AfroCuban funk band.  They are hard driving energetic band.  Their music is a very unique blend of African Cuban funk music.  They are definitely a must see.

100th Birthday Celebration of Lawrence Feringhetti at the City Lights Bookstore https://jameswhittlesey.com/blog/2019/4/100th-birthday-celebration-of-lawrence-feringhetti-at-the-city-lights-bookstore I went to the 100th Birthday celebration of Lawrence Ferlinghetti at the City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco. I have been there only a couple of times before. A lot of people from the Beat era were there a well as many younger people. I tried to capture the feeling and spirit of this iconic location.  It felt great going there, having grown up across the bridge in the shadow of the city. I am sorry I didn't get the poet's names.

Tower Bridge in Sacramento, CA https://jameswhittlesey.com/blog/2019/3/tower-bridge-in-sacramento-ca I went to a seminar in Sacramento.  Right across the street from the hotel is the Tower Bridge. The colors and light were beautiful.  I couldn't stop taking pictures of it. Here are a few photos from two days there Rivertown
