I saw them ( or part of a show) at the Cuckoo's Nest a while back. What I remember, they didn't fit in to well at that venue. Something about a car and a 2 story drop?

But that was then and this is now. Missed them at the Fair but saw Rollins and X.

JT, how'd you know that's my fave Wall of Voodoo song (Ring Of Fire off an earlier EP running close 2nd). I went to see them in 1980 at a downtown bar here called the Zebra Club. It was a good show. A freind of mine I went with (Terry Marine) hated them and dubbed the band "Ball of DooDoo"! I thought that was a little harsh.



Cuz I just knew it Wreck. It's actually,
"Wish I was in
Tiajuana" but who cares. OH AND, while lip synching this song, you must turn your mouth sideways, (to the side of your face). Yeah, now try it in the mirror.
I would love to see these guys in S.F. Somebody remind me or just buy me 2 tickets please. Jab?

That describes Terry Marine in those days perfectly: little and harsh! Until he became a nice guy and put out the zine "Be My Friend" anyway.

You can buy tickets at virtuous.com for a $3 fee for each ticket, or the way I do it is go to Slim's web site and print out their fax order from (PDF file) and fax in a credit card order for a $2 fee for each ticket.

Oh, so there's just general seating. No assigned seats? Cool, then that means it must be a smaller more intimate venue.

No seats, period. But it's fairly easy to get close to the stage.

You realize this is Stan Ridgway with his backup band, calling himself "Wall of Voodoo", right? I love Stans solo stuff, but I think it's a bit disingenuous to claim himself and non-WOV musicians as WOV. There are at least 2 original members still living, and a few others from the post Stan era - I think it would be a bit more honest to call this "Stan Ridgway performs the songs of WOV"...

Just my two cents!

I did not know that and just assumed it was a reunion. I must admit I'm disappointed. According to the WOV myspace page the surviving members were asked to participate but I'm skeptical and wonder why none of them agreed to it. In any case, I'm still looking forward to hearing a Wall of Voodoo set by his current band, but it's not going to be like a real reunion, like the amazing recent shows by the Weirdos, Mission of Burma, and DEVO.

Now I'm pissed off! Slim's calendar is showing it as Stan Ridgeway, not as Wall of Voodoo. I mean I like Stan Ridgeway and would go to see him but I paid $25 expecting a Wall of Voodoo reunion show!

Maybe Stan was getting a bunch of gruf from disgruntled fans when they found out it wasn't going to be a real WOV reunion show, so he changed the booking.

see ya New Years Jabster.

For sale: two tickets to Stan Ridgeway show at Slim's in San Francisco, this Saturday, Dec. 2nd. The tickets cost me $27 each including service charges. Make me an offer for one or both.

I have will-call tickets so I can't send the ticket to you - you will have to meet me at the venue on Saturday night.

Send me a PM if you want them.

Jab and I went. The tickets said WOV w/Stan Ridgway. We stayed for maybe 4 songs then decided to go see The Plimsouls. Much better, more energy.
