Last night I wandered into my local watering hole for a beer or two. Bartender I'd never seen before was wearing a "Slough Feg" T-shirt and Pittsburgh Pirates hat. I commented on the shirt. He goes, "Wow, no one knows how to pronounce that correctly!" (Slow (as in Wow!) Feg). I told him that I dug the band and was going to the show at the Elbo Room next month.
He says, "Thanks. See you there." It was Mike Scalzi, guitarist, singer and main instigator of SF. We chatted for about an hour, while he served customers, told tour stories and chatted about his new drummer, (that he was stoked about), Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh, spelunking and the trials and tribs of flogging an old-school metal band while trying to live in San Francisco.
