Featuring Doug Ferrari with Boxcar and Moshe Kasher -Doug is an San Francisco native and headliner who won the SF Comedy Competition, has appeared on 25 TV comedy shows, and worked with everybody from Bob Hope to Robin Williams. He is one of the great Elder Statesman Of SF Comedy. Boxcar has been entertaining and challenging audiences around the country since 1986. Balancing a routine that is as thought provoking as it is innovative and funny, Boxcar brings to light the lies and hypocrisy of politics, the media and religion, while also exposing truth and encouraging the evolution of thought. Moshe is one of the hottest young comics in what has been called a new wave of bay area comedy. He is original, brash and smart combining energetic performance with viciously funny writing.

City Roots Featuring Kapakahi, The Elevators, DJ Dee 3/7/08 @ El Rincon - Take catchy pop hooks and hip-hop sensibilities, add a twist of reggae and some Latin beats, bend it together with some funk . . . it sounds like a recipe for confusion.
