"Clangin' & Bangin'" in Civic Center

These are the guys who do the vintage barrelhouse piano-and-drum thing in U.N. Plaza, in that "Mid-Market" area the SF Chronicle claims is a wasteland. Kirby Lee Hammel, piano, and Jake Alexander, drums, available for "Any event in which Boogie and/or Woogie-ing may be required."

They're up there now at the Heart of the City Farmers' Market. So are a new cheese place from Petaluma, and some bakers, and the honey people and the date people and the organic gardeners from down the coast with the unflappable teenage kid at the scale.

Also some elderly hipsters trading Ginsberg-era wisecracks [or, OK, giving the impression of doing so] under the weird rusty metal public sculpture. And a dude with a cardboard sign that says he's selling back flips.

It's a beautiful day. Couldn't live anywhere else.
