The Guverment (9pm)
THE GUVERMENT are Johnny Doyle from Dublin (songwriter, guitar, vocals )  Damien Martin from Kildare (bass guitar, vocals ), Ritch Fisanick from New Jersey (lead guitar) and Darko from Serbia (drums).The Guverment are busy playing the clubs throughout the bay area behind their raucous new album - “Run like F*K.” The album,(currently available on iTunes) produced by Doyle and Martin provides an unflinchingly raw, honest and Irish perspective on the American experience.  Rollicking songs of whiskey filled nights, gambling, and delirious mornings dominate the new release but that doesn’t mean the album is a one trick pony.  On the contrary, blasting rock riffs and up-tempo material is offset, sometimes surprisingly, by tender heartfelt ballads
