Banksy on Valencia

Banksy on Valencia, originally uploaded by deanv41.

This Banksy piece is right above Amnesia, which used to be The Chameleon, a long-serving music club that was a debut stage in SF for Beck, Heavenly, Go Sailor!, and many other underground 90s phenoms that sometimes went overground. These days, Amnesia is still a terrific spot to see new music. A few years ago, I happened to catch a set by an outrageous rhythmic alt.folk duo called, at the time, The Dodo Birds. They soon became The Dodos and are doing really well for themselves. The Gypsy Music nights are also a big draw. It feels right that Banksy should hone in on this locale for a strike.
