-Polkacide presents…The Last Polka
32 years...hundreds of incredible army's worth of band members...countless gallons of beer and sweat, outrageous costumes, ringing ear drums, and unforgettable good times.
Like all mythical heroes and creatures of yore so too has the time come for San Francisco's own pioneers of hardcore punk rock polka, the one and only POLKACIDE, to announce their last live performance. Polkacide and The Bottom of The Hill are proud to present THE LAST POLKA. and invite people from all over the Bay Area young and old to take this chance to polka their backsides off in the loudest and brashest way possible on what is to be a historic chapter in the history of the San Francisco music scene.

Kehoe International
-Kehoe International at Ivy Room Hello my name is Bryan Kehoe, leader and founder of the band Kehoe International. I am really good at pickin' that guitar, and sangin' my kooky songs, but not so good at writing boring, lame bios about my music. From the ashes of The Kehoe Nation: Over the last few years I recorded and self-released 2 LPs "Music for Livers" and "Devil's Acre Overture" under this moniker. These recordings were co-produced by, recording legend Oz Fritz (Tom Waits, The Ramones, Primus). I never really liked the name of the band; it was kind of a joke, So... I changed it! Kehoe Int'l sounds more... authentic. Like it could be traded on the NYSE. I spent a good amount of time playing in the esoteric SF independent band M.I.R.V. We toured all over the world and even got on the MTV, when they actually played music. I toured with Jerry Cantrell Band (Alice in Chains) for a couple of years. I also have been in and out of my friend Les Claypool's band The Frog Brigade. Les and I and few other friends did a movie and album "National Lampoon's Electric Apricot", and the last couple of years we toured all over in Les Claypool's Duo de Twang. The "Duo" recorded an LP called "4 Foot Shack" that got high reviews on NPR that my Mom heard on the radio, and all of of sudden... I am legit in her eyes! Ha! Only took decades... The sound and style of Kehoe Int'l can be explained as a unique pastiche of elements; the bombast of guitar hero Rock, the rebellion and aggressiveness of Punk and Metal, the whimsy of Oompah and Polka, with just a pinch of Avant Garde, all honoring the Roots of Americana music. I call it Garage-Twang!
