Two famous singers and songwriters headed to Gulf region shows

Two respected singers and songwriters have concerts in the Bay Area. Here’s a look.

Christine Hirsch: Alternative rock, whose primary work with Throwing Muses in the ’80s influenced countless other bands, is back on the road again. Singer, songwriter, and guitarist leads an electric trio featuring Throwing Muses alum Fred Abong on Bass and Rob Ahlers (from Hersh’s other great acting, 50 Foot Wave) on drums, at the chapel in San Francisco on November 15. Hirsch supports 2020 Sun Racket, the latest Muses effort that features Bernard George on bass and David Narciso on drums. Hopefully Hirsch will also mix classic Muses like “Mania”, “Ellen West” and “Hazing” as well as plenty of solos.
