The Gun & Doll Show Headlines
2010 Haight Street Fair
Main Stage that featured The Tubes, Metallica and Jefferson Starship features The Gun & Doll Show, 17 years of no-cover original bad-ass music
San Francisco, CA - On July 7, 1967 in the middle of spring break during the legendary Summer of Love, Time Magazine featured a cover story on the Haight in San Francisco called “The Hippies: Philosophy of a Sub-Culture”
Inspired after seeing a billboard on the way to Sacramento promoting both a gun show and a doll show simultaneously, MacGeraghty set out to form a band that would over-deliver to its fans. Today the seven-member band consisting of three female vocalists, two guitarists, a bassist and drummer, plays to packed crowds at venues like the Great American Music Hall, Café du Nord and Slim’s.
Known for their high energy performance combining European theater and story-telling into what music critic Kirk Hamilton called “the best damned rock show in San Francisco,” the band is planning an hour-long set at 4 PM Sunday June 13th on the main stage. Always the cultural provocateurs, one of the featured songs “What I Hate About Punks” has Susan Donaldson shouting down punks outside of Amoeba Records on Haight Street, right where the band will be performing on Sunday. http://www.reverbnation.com/
Featuring songs from their recently released American Radio Two (AR II) album, the Gun & Doll Show will be on the main stage at 4 PM. AR II is a Fortune Records label. For purchase info and more about the band visit http://www.reverbnation.com/
