Point San Pablo Harbor is a once-upon whaling station along Richmond's San Pablo Bay which has more recently been transformed into a groovy hangout for those looking for a local getaway. Over the past few years, a band of creatives have installed an outdoor gallery of large sculpture, lighted paths, gardens and a goat farm(!), a community hall and restaurant.
The restaurant, Black Star Pirate BBQ, serves up tasty plates, cocktails and generally good vibes on its sheltered back patio complete with a stage overlooking the marina. I played there with Bay Station a couple of weeks ago and we had a great time. This Friday, I'm returning to play a set to open for Kate Burkart Band. I'll be accompanied by Danny Allen, the excellent artist/guitarist/producer who helped me create and fledge The Department of the West record before the pandemic changes all our courses. I'm on early, at 5pm and music goes til 8pm. Join us!
