Here Tonight

Now that another Noise Pop has come and gone, you have until Thursday to recharge before getting back out there again.

That's because on Thursday, you'll be going to Here Tonight: A Tribute to Gene Clark, which we're co-presenting at the Chapel. Gene Clark, founding member of the Byrds and principal songwriter for the band during their formative years, penned a handful of enduring hits such as "I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better" and "Eight Miles High." His body of work was rediscovered in his later career and following his passing in the early '90s, with artists like Teenage Fanclub, Yo La Tengo, and Tom Petty covering his music and creating renewed interest in his work.

This Thursday at the Chapel, a new generation is taking up the tradition of paying tribute to a great American songwriter, for the third year in a row. This third annual incarnation of Here Tonight includes an all-local lineup of Northern California's folk and psych stars, with Sweet Chariot, Angelica Rockne, the Asteroid #4, the Kai Clark Band, Lia Rose, Mapache, and Tabernacle all performing (Kai Clark, it should be noted, is Gene's son). The night is also a fundraiser for friend of the bands Michael Patrick McGuirk, to help with costs associated with Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type-1. Find out more here.

Things get started at 8pm at the Chapel. See you there.
