The Flick Coffee House 50th Anniversary Show & Dolphin Project Benefit
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
**ADDITIONAL SEATS JUST MADE AVAILABLE**
In a deep bow to great memories and the good times they shared in the 1960's and '70's at the old iconic Flick coffeehouse, a cadre of musician and comedy pals will come together for a limited engagement, three day concert fest. Friday and Saturday, March 28 and 29 at 7pm and 9:30pm, and now with two additional shows, Sunday, March 30 at 2:00pm and 6:30pm, they will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of their old hangout, now The Titanic Pub and Brewery.
All of the performers declared they prefer working at the site of the old Flick rather than a concert venue. Only 100 tickets are available for each show, which is destined to be a magical event.
Locked in to perform are singer-guitarist Estrella Berosini (Joni Mitchell’s Lady of the Canyon), Grove icon Bobby Ingram with Kevin Hurley and Bryn Ingram, singer-songwriter Vince Martin (Cindy, Oh Cindy, Tear Down These Walls), also accompanied by Hurley on guitar, folk singer Chuck Mitchell (masterful interpreter of Brecht and Weill), singer-songwriters Michael Smith and Barbara Barrow (The Dutchman, Weavermania), and Gabe Kaplan, “Welcome Back, Kotter” and TV stand-up.
Recalling The Flick as “an elegant-for-a coffee-house-meeting-place with stained glass, Tiffany lamps, unusual teas and coffees, during 1964-‘74, if you were in high school, college or a folk music fan, you found yourself at The Flick.,” said Kaplan.
Kaplan credited The Flick for featuring the most amazing young talents of that era where on any given night you could see David Crosby, Jimmy Buffett, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dion, Tom Rush, and Joni Mitchell. Kaplan first met John Sebastian there, who went on to write (among other things) the “Welcome Back Kotter” theme. There will also be tributes to Fred Neil, Steve Goodman and Gamble Rodgers.
Show room tickets are $40 in advance, $50 at the door. Tickets in the bar, $25 in advance and $35 at the door, have partially obstructed view, but full sound experience. Several seatings are sold out, but some additional tickets will be released at door for each show. Food and drinks are available with no beverage minimum.
A full %30 of gross ticket sales will go to Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin project, dedicated to stopping dolphin slaughter and exploitation around the world:
