Well, it looks like Neighborhood Thrift Store in the Tower District has cemented its place as the hippest thrift store in town. In addition to its mural (yep, it’s still there), word is that the store’s newly opened cafe will serve as an all-ages music venue.
It fits about 150 people and shows will probably be weekly through the summer, says Joey Lynch, who has been working with Neighborhood Thrift to get live music happening. Lynch plays in local band Buffalo Guns and is part of local promoters Love the Captive.
Love the Captive and fellow show bookers Religious Appeal will be cycling the music through Neighborhood Cafe. Per Lynch, you can expect an assortment of indie rock, folk, acoustic and rock on the calendar.
The first show is Friday, with a couple of touring bands headlining — My Heart To Joy (from Connecticut) and Satie (from Tijuana). They’ll be joined by locals Mane Horse and Buffalo Guns. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Cover is $6. To get an idea of what the space looks like, check out the slideshow on Neighborhood Thrift’s site.
