The Mission is at it’s best around the last few days before & after Xmas. The vibes are mellow, way less people, always plenty of parking, etc. If you happen to be sticking around this year consider stopping by the Rite Spot on Sunday Dec. 23rd for some music and chili. Doors will be at 6:00, music will start at 7:00. Since so many folks are playing everyone will be playing mini sets.  Colossal Yes (solo) Meg Baird Michael Beach Meercaz (solo) Jesse Steinchen
Joel Robinow Doug Hilsinger and Caroleen Beatty Rite Spot 2099 Folsom St. Free (pass the hat) And of course if you’re into cooking chili bring it on down. Chili cooks should bring their own crock-pots.

Inspired by a “What the fuck” philosophy, “Loosen The Lead And Spoil The Dogs” is a throwback to days when artists crafted records to be listened to as albums. This third full-length from Colossal Yes (a project masterminded by Comets On Fire drummer Utrillo Kushner) embraces unhinged power pop, bleary-eyed classic rock , and channels the late-night, art with meaning vibe, of early 70’s singer-songwriters. The result is an album that rides high with optimism like an unscratched lottery ticket.

Lyrics are placed in the forefront of the action drawing inspiration from various literary and pop culture topics. When all assembled the end product is a canon of lyrical imagery and sun-soaked, open-ended possibility. The ten songs that comprise “Loosen The Lead…” concentrate on thought and a groove, ultimately ending up with the only acceptable conclusion… “What the fuck.”

Joining Kushner in this recording were friends and cohorts including Ben Chasney (Six Organs of Admittance, Comets On Fire, Raganda), Ben Flashman (Comets On Fire), Noel Von Harmonson (Sic Alps, Comets On Fire) as well as members of Aisler’s Set, East Bay Grease, Howling Rain and many others.
