Metro Music In The “Other” Park: Back for it’s 10th season.


Sponsored by Metro Newspaper, Dos Equis Beer, and produced by the San Jose Downtown Association, Music In The Other Park is back with a fun filled line-up of shows. Held every Thursday in June from 5:30pm to 9pm in St. James Park located at First Street. & St. James Street. These mini concerts are the perfect excuse to ditch the home commute, chug a few beers, and enjoy the outdoors with music. Acts include Sugar Minott, Eek-A-Mouse, Malo, and The Tubes w/ Fee Waybill. Everyone loves LIVE music, and when it’s FREE, it’s even better. Get there early, get a good spot, and enjoy the shows. For more information check out San Jose Downtown Association.

When I was a kid many many years ago one of my favorite songs was “Talk To Ya Later” by The Tubes. I first herd the song performed by The Tubes on the late night television show SCTV. Does anyone remember that show? Almost all of the cast from SCTV went on to become big stars. It should be fun to see The Tubes perform on stage. And don’t forget the 19th season of Music In The Park from July 12 to Sept 19 held at Plaza de Cesar Chavez (Market and San Carlos streets). This is a much longer running series of concerts featuring much bigger acts. And once again…..FREE!

    I remember The Tubes but do not recall seeing them on SCTV. My favorite SCTV characters were Bob & Doug McKenzie (Rick Moranis & Dave Thomas).

    Yep! The Tubes were on SCTV back in 1981 in a skit called The Fishin’ Musician with host Gil Fisher played by John Candy. During that skit they performed “Sushi Girl”, and later it this episode of SCTV they performed “Talk To Ya Later”.
