The silk road to Pam the Funkstress

Quite a turnout Thursday at City Hall for The Silk Road, a slick Vietnamese restaurant at Broadway and Embarcadero. I wrote last week the Silk Road had booked Pam the Funkstress to spin some R&B but had to cancel last minute for lack of a cabaret license. So that’s what about a dozen or more folks — including if I am not mistaken Pam’s partner in funk Boots Riley — were doing at City Hall for a cabaret license application hearing. The Silk Road owner and the music bookers want to play light jazz Monday and Tuesdays until about 10 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday would be jazz, blues and rock&roll. First comes first: Before a license can be approved building, fire and electrical inspections must be passed.
