Sept. 26: Michael Hurley at Sweetwater Music Hall



If you’ve got one of those friends still clinging to his manual typewriter and Polaroid Land Camera in the other, who extols the virtues of rotary phones and rub-on lettering, who distrusts anything made past 1978 and loudly proclaims so, have we got the gift for him: Michael Hurley’s 1984 album Blue Navigator, reissued in 2010 on 8-Track! We’re not kidding! Nor are we kidding when we report that the initial pressing of 50 sold out, and one later sold on eBay for $46! It’s official, folks: the old-timey trend has reached “drooling weirdo” levels. Hurley, an avid 8-Track fan and underground cult-folk hero, plays Thursday, Sept. 26, at Sweetwater Music Hall. 19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley. 8pm. $22—$35. 415.388.3850.
