Re: “Feb. 22: Willie Brown at SRJC

Nice feature in the Press Democrat today about Willy.

Never doubt he continues to be a power broker and clothes rack.

> Out Of Power, But Still A Power Broker <

"Wilkes Bashford, of the renowned clothing store here that bears his name, places a John Lobb suede oxford, size 11, marked down to $1,650, on the table at Le Central.

"It's a gorgeous color," says Willie Brown".............

"the young boy who grew up in segregated Mineola, Texas, in the 1940s, his grandmother once a slave, his mother a domestic servant, who had to scrabble for everything he achieved.".......

........."How much of this can be traced to his childhood deprivation? "All of it, all of it, all of it," he says."

.........""Obviously it's not going to be a shoe that every man is going to buy and understand," a salesman tells him.
"OK. OK, I'll take them," Brown says."

I grew up poor and understand the dynamic.......
but at $1650.I would have asked for a friendly discount! ;- }

Re: “Feb. 18: Dan Bern at Sweetwater Music Hall

Well said! I like your philosophical description; that's exactly how so many of us feel about Sweetwater. It's great to have this jewel of a venue in Mill Valley again.

Will this be shown again? Would love to see it but just can't make it today... We loved exploring the ruins with our kids when they were young and imagining all that went on, such history.
