Hemlock Tavern New Year's Eve Bash with BORTS MINORTS & This Bike is a Pipe Bomb
Hemlock Tavern New Year's Eve Bash with the exuberantly irrepressible BORTS MINORTS and post-folk-punk legends This Bike is a Pipe Bomb. Plus the "Best of the Bay" award-winning DJ Tragic spinning records in the main bar. Includes champagne toast at midnight!
"See, there's this guy in a hooded white unitard and a headset mic who sings and flails and contorts he might be an alien or an android, but it's doubtful anything but an actual human would be able to bring such pure and bizarre joy to the stage. Equally enthusiastic are the Borts backup dancers, who flaunt leotards and fishnets (and the occasional pair of lederhosen), and whose energetic choreography demonstrates limber limbs and an admirable appreciation of jazz hands. Borts's music is similarly befuddling, in the best possible way a combination of samples, keyboards, horns, drums, theremin, slide whistles, a single-stringed bass made out of a snow ski, and god knows what else, but I guarantee you'll not see anything as sense-assaultingly entertaining this leap year, or any other year. - SF Bay Guardian

A white body suit, a musical instrument made of a ski and bass string, and beautiful dancing gals. Fun SF weirdness without the Burning Man remorse. - Kelley Stoltzs Top 10 of 2008 in SF Bay Guardian
