Lil Mike's Tribe Blog

I just wanted to let all the remaining holiday heathens here in town to drop by the Makeout Room This Sunday Dec 23

I predict lotsa wine, women & song and likely more mayhem than ya can shake a pixie stick at....

There will be a Psycho Santa, naughty helpers, a snow machine, decorations, a tree, drink specials and some other festive crap. The only thing missing will be your drunk uncle, and trust me, we will be channeling him all night.

A portion of proceeds will benefit the SF Fo... read more

The first SF politician I ever met was Terence Hallinan back in the late 80's... Actually I also used to run into fellow Supervisor Harry Britt at a liquor store on Haight St now & again, but he wasn't really shaking hands, maybe just the late afternoon DT's...

My Hallinan meeting was at a SOMA discotech on Harrison St called City Nights, where one could just as easily catch a set by The Ramones or a case of the clap. Hallinan's rep as a fighter stems from his teenage years when his nick... read more

My Testimonials

January 12, 2004
Lil Mike is great. He is this ball of energy. He is perpetual motion in action. Ask him a question and he give you a million one solutions to any given problem. He is sweet and helpful.
He has thousand and thousands of volumes of stories and everyone has their Lil Mike story.
January 12, 2004
Lil Mike has been an integral part of the SF music scene for the last 15 years or so. From his days as part of the Komotion collective, member of the Bedlam Rovers, and show promoter, to his brilliant Dv8r rants and Punk retrospectives, Mike has documented much of the local music scene on video tape and digitally for the last 15 years or so. He has a library of some of the best performances of that period. He also has a nice video/digital editing facility which is known as Event Magic ( Resourceful, gregarious, and highly energetic, Lil Mike has a wonderfully warped sense of humor. He is a stream of consciousness through the wasteland of our society.

Last Known Thoughts & Random Revelations

Friday, August 03, 2007 I love Rhythm & Blues, which is why I felt a tinge of sadness late last night. It was upon discovering something when I happened to be browsing a wrinkled 2 day old issue of the Times Picayune late last night after a friend...

I hate to say I was looking forward to checking out the new Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony flick. Not because I'm remotely fond of either's show biz presence, but because the production is based on the life of Puerto Rican born singer Hector...
