Waterhouse recently moved back to Southern California due to his quickly escalating, hectic tour schedule, but the plan has always been to officially release his album in San Francisco. In a beautiful bout of planning, Wednesday night's show will not only mark the release of Time's All Gone, but will also serve as a celebration for the 25th anniversary of the day Rooky Ricardo's first opened its doors. Expect the dance party to start early and run late, as Waterhouse has enlisted the help of some of his favorite local DJs to spin before and after his set.

"In my mind, my album was born out of Rooky's and out of a specific period of time in San Francisco more than anything else," he says. "So this is my party for all the people and things that really mattered to me there."

So nice to hear about this revival of our roots. There's another great show this Friday June 8, at the Historic 23 club in Brisbane. The show will feature a new Rockabilly Band from Grass Valley, and I will DJ a lot of great vinyl. Some of it was collected from Rooky Ricardos as well. Secrets out now, though! ;)
