The Down Dirty Shake

Now becoming a rite of summer, local band the Down Dirty Shake will begin their annual multi-night residency at Milk Bar starting next month.

The psychedelic-blues rockers have been hosting a summer-long residency at the Haight Street club for four years now, and they’ll kick off their latest go-around with fellow local acts Battlehooch, Hungry Skinny and Sam Vega on July 6.

The Down Dirty Shake — part 13th Floor Elevators, part Scott Walker and part Willie Dixon — will host additional shows at the Milk Bar on July 9, 13, 20, 23, and 27, respectively. Upcoming supporting acts for the residency include Annie Girl and the Flight, Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah, Everyone is Dirty and Zodiac Death Valley, among others.

Along with the live performances, the multi-night residency will also feature trippy visual projections, DJs, dancers, and speeches from local representatives on issues facing San Francisco residents, particularly in the artistic community.
