One word to describe The Court & Spark:

One word to describe your music:

What's it take to get a gig in this town anyway?
Other than the belief that what you’re doing is worthwhile and a little bit of perseverance, not much.

What do you think of the San Francisco music scene?
I think that the music coming out of San Francisco and the Bay Area in general is the best it’s been since I’ve lived here. There are so many mind-blowing bands and musicians here right now: Michael Talbott & The Wolfkings, Broker/Dealer, Willow Willow, The Mother Hips, Deerhoof, Six Organs of Admittance, Comets On Fire, Whysp, Skygreen Leopards Skyband, Vetiver, Black Fiction, The Finches, Brightblack, Kelley Stoltz, The Cuts, Ara Anderson, Tom Carter, Film School, Paula Frazer/Tarnation, Jeffrey Luck Lucas, Death Sentence: Panda!, Joanna Newsom, Devendra Banhart (can we claim him?), all the Jewelled Antler projects, and a million other acts that I know I’m going to regret not remembering here. It’s a good time for music in San Francisco.

When/ where was your best show ever?
Denver Kiwanis Club, 1961, opening for Sammy Davis Jr.

What band would you most like to have open for you?
Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band circa “Clear Spot” or Universal Order of Armageddon circa “The Switch Is Down.” Duke Ellington if neither of those bands were available.

Where can San Francisco see you next?
Friday, May 12th @ Great American Music Hall with The Finches, Black Fiction, and Jason Molina of Magnolia Electric Co.
