Sept. 6: MDC at North Bay Film and Art Collective


He was a member of the Petaluma Jak’s skateboard team, a guitarist for the band Free Cowboy Hats, a constant presence behind the concession stand at the Phoenix Theater and a tireless supporter of local bands. More than this, Kristof “Goose” Gross was one of the most sincere and kind-hearted people I’ve known. His funeral in Mill Valley this year brought people together in beer salutes and songs, but what he really would have loved was knowing that MDC, one of his favorite punk bands, would agree to play a remembrance for him. In 1988, MDC played the Cotati Cabaret, where singer Dave Dictor stripped off his clothes and traded underwear with a girl; last year in Santa Rosa, they were polite as your mom. Kristof, of course, took pictures, smiled and sang along in the front row the entire time. It’s a fitting tribute when MDC play with Litany for the Whale, Fistifuks and Semi-Evolved Simians on Sunday, Sept. 6, at the North Bay Film and Art Collective. 99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa. 7pm. $7. 707.542.2925.Gabe Meline
