As promised, the free, “hella entertaining” Most Interesting Show in the World rocked San Francisco’s SoMA district last night at The Mezzanine. Dos Equis picked up the tab and brought a truckload of smooth, refreshing XX Ambar (Amber?) and XX Lager to hand out for free. Verily, it was “dope.” If this is how our corporate overlords want to spend their money during a recession, whom are we to argue?
See below to discover if this show is coming to your town next. If you’re in Houston, Texas, you can get your ticks now. Otherwise, you’ll have to figure things out on your own. (You had to go through ShowClix to get tickets in S.F.)
[UPDATE: Now you can get tickets for all shows by clicking on TOUR DATES here and then on “RSVP” for your town. Still a few ticks left in Fun Diego, I see…]
Sax-playing host Angelo Moore of Fishbone is the high-energy MC on the MISW ’09 tour:

The crowd seemed to be in a good mood:
It’s Melody Sweets!:
Beatboxer Butterscotch accompanying what must be the world’s largest saxamophone – a purple bass:
The Human Spring!:
There were whips and crossbows in the house, but edged weapons were the order of the day:
Mr. and Mrs. G have a Mr. and Mrs. Smith thing going on, apparently.
Aiming a crossbow using a mirror to pop a balloon. Love hurts:
The whole shebang was a benefit for the San Francisco Food Bank:
This was the line early on going up Jessie Street betwixt 5th and 6th Streets. But everybody got in so long as they had their printed-out ticket. The Mezz at Triple Four Jessie appears to be a well run nightclub, with an aware but mellow staff that enforces rules without any unneccesary vitriol. Hurray!
