street sweeper social club

The soundtrack for the Lineweights REVOLUTION has come!

http://streetsweepersocialclub.com/

Our boy Tom Morello has teamed up with MC/Activist/Artist/Front man of The Coup…Boots Riley.   Morello representing the SoCal, Boots from the mean streets of Oakland representing NorCal…join together to spread the word of uprising, change and revolution.  Street Sweeper Social Club is….”more than a band, it’s a social club.”  Love the idea of looking at MUSIC as more than the “individual band”, but more about the SOCIAL group it creates.  Thats the same reason why Lineweights is online!  Enjoy the boombox-tommy gun-earshot!

taking bart to the battle of the bay

Last week,  Dom and I went to the Battle of the Bay, A’s vs Giants…and as luck turned out its the 20th Anniversary of the Earthquake Series.

Being Eighties Kids, with Dom a Giants fan and myself an A’s fan…we had a blast, recalling  memories of 80’s baseball in the Bay and growing up on opposing ends.

I also took Bart this time to the game…it had been awhile,  so of course i got overwhelmed with all the people and had to draw them all, and when i got to the coliseum i went insane…i love how diverse and beautiful the people of the Bay are, just so many faces and stories to tell…here are some that i caught…

A’s win! take that Dom…oh yeah, the Giants did take this series in the end last week…
