Paul Pot is a recording/visual artist from Berkeley, CA. As a DIY music maker he had a local hit on KALX in 1980 called “Plastic TV Land on Acid” which was played on Radio Free Europe’s year end “Tops in Pops” show. From 1985 to 1997 he was in various, ill-fated punk bands: GAIL AND THE FUDGPACKERS, DON’T MIND US, and POOR IMPULSE CONTROL. He is the guitarist/singer in his current band THE HAPPY CLAMS (who are loud) and plays quieter solo gigs on the side. He has hosted the Missouri Lounge Open Mic in Berkeley for the last 14+ years. His songs tend to be ironic, quirky, and anthemic. This will be one of those quieter things.
Jean Caffeine, who plays a punky blend of pop, folkn’ roots, has had more lives than a cat. A singer songwriter and band front person, Jean has kicked out the jams in more than one continent. She drummed for 70’s SF all girl band the Urge and NYC 15 -minutes -of -famers Pulsallama. Now a long-time fixture in Austin, TX, Jean is at home in S.F coffee houses, Texas roadhouses and in the Foreign Press club in Phonem Phen, Cambodia. She’s played fests such as NXNE in Canada, BID in Germany and the SXSW and CMJ in the US.
