east bay (and one SF) shows you might not know about: free Girl Talk, Dan Deacon; probably cheap Mt. Eerie

Laptop rock-out wizards Girl Talk and Dan Deacon are touring together. Their 9/29 Fillmore show is sold out but you can see them for free in Berkeley a couple days later. From a myspace bulletin:

VENUE INFO
NAME: Lower Sproul Plaza
ADDRESS: Telegraph and Bancroft Way
CITY/ST/ZIP: Berkeley CA 94720
CAPACITY: 2000
PRICE: Free
Time: Dan [Deacon] at 5 pm, [Girl Talk] at 6 PM

Also, there are a couple Mount Eerie shows coming up presented by Club Sandwich. I saw a CS presented Mount Eerie show at the ATA earlier this year and it was pretty great. It’s a small venue and tickets will probably be cheap, so get there promptly.

Sun. Oct. 7th- San Francisco, Cal.- ATA – 992 Valencia (with Moools and Lloyd and Michael and “Always”)

Mon. Oct. 8th- Oakland, Cal.- Bug House (with Moools and Lloyd and Michael)

Also remember Club Sandwich is presenting Dan Deacon sans Girl Talk on Sunday in Oakland.

    Are there ever any good shows on the peninsula or in San Jose?

    Low played tonight (Thursday) at Stanford, but it was Stanford ID only. Sometimes there are open shows put on by the SCN (run by friends of mine). Otherwise, there are sometimes decent ones in various places. They tend to be like Wilco playing the San Jose Events Center rather than smaller bands in smaller clubs, though.

    Does anyone know the address of the Bughouse? I’m trying to see Mt. Eerie play there tomorrow night, but I can’t find information on this venue at all.

    Kate, the Mt Eerie site lists it as “Bug House, 3301 Kempton, Oakland, Cal.”
