Yoshi's San Francisco Jazz Club & Japanese Restaurant

Michelle Shocked Still Rocks; Yoshi's crowd puts down their Sashimi

Post-punk hillbilly radical folkie feminist, anarchist musician Michelle Shocked is now 47 and so were most of her fans at Sunday night’s gig at Yoshi's.

“You can sing along or you can just enjoy your sushi,” she told the crowd who had probably Tivo-ed Desperate Housewives and probably were enjoying their sushi thank you very much.

She and her audience have come along way since Shocked’s days in San Francisco’s hardcore punk scene squatting with MDC and hanging with the Dead Kennedys.
