This is the one I know. (No matter how drunk the sorority girl, she could sing along with the “na-na, na-na” refrain, so that was a bonus, back in the 90′s.)

Anyway, deets below.

Whither Slim’s Nightclub? OMG, It’s the Entertainment Commission’s “San Francisco Neighborhood Summit” on April 6

Monday, April 4th, 2011

I know where you’ll be this coming Wednesday after work – you’ll be at the San Francisco Neighborhood Summit near Sixth and Folsom, natch.

And you know who else will be there? Numerous members of the San Francisco Entertainment Commish, plus that dude what’s from the SFPD Alcohol Liaison Unit, plus a Sound Technician, plus NAYYYYYYbor “Advocates.”

So let’s see here, we’re going to have The City, the SFPD, a sound guy, and officially-designated NIMBYs all meeting South of Market just a few weeks after the Slim’s Nightclub / Jeanmarie Guenot / Other NIMBYs* L’affaire Du 2011. Gee, I’m thinking that the topic of the ABC’s recent action against Slim’s just might come up.

SoMA NIMBY Jeanmarie Guenot vs. Teh Internets: Did the Amoeba Music Blog Pull a Post About Noise and Nightclubs?

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Appears as if the blog at Amoeba Music, the AMOEBLOG, pulled a recent post over fear of a defamation lawsuit. But, as always, You Make The Call.

Here’s the story straight, straight from the MSM’s Brent Begin. Now, here’s the back-and-forth between somebody, some random or somebody’s proxy and Kevin Montgomery at the Uptown Almanac. And here’s the cache of a post at AMOEBLOG:

Could it be that Amoeba is ascared of getting sued?

Yes.

Should Amoeba have been scared?

Can’t tell. Not sure what’s wrong with the post they put up.

Oh well.

Anyway, that’s something to ponder as you listen to Song A Day #815: Jeanmarie Guenot and Her Quest To Kill SF Nightlife from Jonathan Mann
