mustache harbor is headlining the San Francisco Rock And Roll Half Marathon. The race event is April 7. It starts at 6:30 a.m. so the post-race concert is, what, 10:30? (there is a 4-hr cutoff, my sortie — the good runners finish in about 2 hours or less).
A cover band as the sole entertainment of “rock and roll …marathon”. That’s like the Raymond Carver line about a statement with 5 lies in four words (which I’ve been lost to suss in recent attempts…anybody?).
I’ve hired or middled both Mother Hips and Mermen for Chronicle Classic 5-K in Palo Alto — that is significantly more rockin’ than Mustache Harbor, even without the use of the word “rock”.
I will bone up on their play list.
I did speak with Dan Swan their agent (“Super Diamond” “Big Bang Beat”) and he said “Tainted Love” headlined last year.
To be honest, although I published some training notes about my goal to cover 13 miles in four hours, I may just head to the nearest pub then Lyft to the show.
Daryl Dragon — “Muskrat Love” they can change the lyric to “Mustache Love” or change the band name. or a contrafact.
Village People — see there’s a dude with a captain’s hat, although earlier version he had a hat that said he will a building inspector.
Jimmy Buffett — I’m thinking boat drinks, but it’s hard to find a picture with both mustache, boats. (Most Daryl Dragon shots were cleaner shone).
I also wrote to an agent, Bruce Houghton for “legacy bands” like Firefall and Player or something. And I botched which song was which …so into you, et cetera. ARS.
I hope they play ooh la la by Faces. Did Rod Stewart ever rock a ‘stache?
What about Cake John McCrea “Mustache Man”? for Mustache Harbor — you here it here foist.
also: Oakland A’s world series 1975.
The dude dancing with Beck on SNL that I taped recently.
Jack Black with “Orange County” 1992. chick back
edit to add: I met the Mustache Harbour singer at SF Rock Half Marathon and posed for a selfie with him and told he I thought he was Pat Monahan. (TK)
