Exile on Toland Place

Seven years ago today, we already had 30th anniversaries on our mind, playing one such celebration for KUSF at Bimbo’s in San Francisco.  We pulled out every stop we could find, dotting our set with covers from their inaugural year of 1977.  What’s more, we invited Jonathan Segel, our old touring pal in Camper Van Beethoven, to sit in for most of the show on violin.  In a transparent move to ingratiate ourselves with local celebrities, we took a request for “Blue Line Swinger” from Quince’s Michael Tusk.  None of which kept the University of San Francisco from selling the station in 2011, exiling them to their current on-line home.
