Bo Bay Today, Wed. Nov. 25, 2009, 8am

-jon moore

Can’t be late
Out the gate
Scoot on up
To the Pacific plate

Blazin’ fire
Solar mire
Boats aspire
To pull pots of wire

Crabs galore
Season’s in
On the seabed floor
Is where they begin

Walkin’ sideways
All of their days
Then ‘shock and awe’
When poking in a claw

Quick onto the boat
Crabbers snag the lot
Boilin’ up the brine they go
From pot to pot to pot

Bo Bay Today, Wed. Nov. 18, 2009

by Jon Moore 8am

Ooh ooh
Arctic chill
Slipped in from
Around the hill

Little Mesa
Tall, be bold
Shades Wharf Road
Harbors cold

Ocean breeze
Really sings
Across one’s face
Really stings

Sun’s arose
Not a flower
Blinding bright
O’er Sutro tower

Currents rush
Sea foams fly
Sitting gull
Gives me the eye

Bo Bay Today, Wed. , Nov 11, 2009

-jon moore

Crab pots


Goin’ for a ride

Glass pane
Laying on
Bo lagoon
Ripples gone

Sun’s amiss
Behind pillows soft
High above
The city’s loft

Tides a-churn
It’s churn’s turn
Washing sloshing
‘neath burrowed ferns

One lone boarder
Floats across
From Bo to Stin
Sailing albatross

20 Minute Loop: Done

This band has been a staple in the Bay Area, and on KWMR for years. Read the news in this note from the band (lifted from The Bay Bridged)

"20 Minute Loop is breaking up.

We’ve been a band in one form or another for over ten years, pushing through various difficulties and enjoying very modest rewards, until the day has arrived when there is no way to continue, at least not a way that can outmaneuver those notorious real-life contingencies that typically mean the death of most bands.

Rest assured, if there were any compelling reasons to continue, they would be the support and recognition many of you have given us for such a long time. In fact, with zero remuneration, we have found that two facts have kept us crawling along:

1) We love the music.

2) We love the friends we made through the music.

Our thanks to you for giving us a good time. For what it’s worth, every member of 20 Minute Loop still loves every other member of 20 Minute Loop. That’s not what this is about."

The band's last show is set for this Sunday at the Bottom of the Hill, in San Francisco.

Pretty Lights

Yes. They just came through the Bay Area a few nights ago. Yes, they're getting a lot of good press these days. Yes, they're very young and use too much of the same weird synth noises. But I liked this album.

A few of these tracks kick ass. They need real vocal support instead of the existing, disconnected, dare I say "hanging" threads (nods to GrandMaster Flash being the exception: do it!). But, look – they're young, and we can clearly expect more good things to come!

The tracks are well-timed, that is: you get enough of what you want here. They also deserve credit for venturing into the "free" market, the bold new territory pioneered by Radiohead. Download it. If you like it make a donation.
