Well, it was a long time coming, but I finally made it down to Coda for dinner and some killer music a few weeks back. It’s almost embarrassing that I hadn’t seen a show at this happening new jazz supper club yet, but man was it worth the wait!
We had a great table, ate some delicious food, were given fantastic service, and then topped it all off with a bad ass live performance by the incredible 8 Legged Monster. And as if that wasn’t enough, the audience was treated to a special appearance by the San Francisco Bourbon Kings at the end of the first set. Good times!
Here’s a few photos from the night along with two audio tracks for your listening pleasure. And if I’m not mistaken, these guys are playing Coda again tomorrow night, so I highly recommend you head over there to check them out!
Track 1: Bourbon Street Parade, San Francisco Bourbon Kings
Track 2: Call For Demons, 8 Legged Monster (Sun Ra)
