Celebrating the life of Steve Mackay this weekend!


This weekend in SF Bay Area, we’re celebrating the life of Steve Mackay!

On Thursday, Feb 24th at KFJC Radio (home of the infamous Maximum LOUIE LOUIE marathon) there was a big 4 hour radio show celebrating the legacy of Steve with lots of music and interviews. We got a chance to hear some rare recordings of Steve with Commander Cody, Snakefinger, Z’ev, Smegma, Blue “Gene” Tyrrany, Andre Williams, Sonny Vincent, Violent Femmes, and of course, Iggy & the Stooges. For the next few weeks or so, you can hear the entire show by visiting http://kfjc.org/broadcast_archives/ and downloading each of the four hours.

Today, Saturday the 27th, there’s two different shows happening at Winters Tavern in Pacifica, which is about a mile or so from Steve’s old apartment.

The first show begins in a few minutes, and ends at 6:30 pm. It’s FREE to the public, but donations for Steve’s family are highly encouraged. The bands scheduled to perform include:
