Original Famous Twang Sundays is a free, all-ages concert series at Thee Parkside in Potrero Hill.

Come by every Sunday; there’s always a fresh traditional or contemporary live act and a surprise special to purchase from the kitchen.

​This Sunday, October 11th Original Famous Twang Sundays welcomes M. Lockwood Porter, Fernando to Thee Parkside in San Francisco. M. Lockwood Porter songs toe the line between country-tinged Americana and straight-up rock-and-roll, with poetic storytelling front and center. A SF Bay Area transplant from rural Oklahoma, Porter’s sound recalls his birthplace and a childhood spent exploring the far reaches of the rock canon. The result is something close to timeless – reminiscent at times of Neil Young, Wilco, Townes Van Zandt, and Bruce Springsteen.

Fernando’s most recent release True Instigator. This album sees Fernando exploring his Americana, Spanish and classic country roots to make what is soon to be a classic Northwest release. The album was recorded with famed producer Adam Selzer (Norfolk and Western, M. Ward) at Type Foundry Studio in Portland, Oregon. Fernando is currently in the Studio working on his 8th CD which he is recording with Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey (REM, Minus 5, Baseball Project) and his long time band. The album is being co-produced by Mike Coykendall and Fernando at Blue Room Studios and will be released in late 2014 or early 2015.
