Today's Local Music: Tim Hockenberry

You might be surprised by what you hear: it’s not Ray Charles, and it’s not Joe Cocker. It’s Tim Hockenberry.

Hockenberry will soon stop performing at the Bay Area clubs where he has played for years, replacing them with shows at auditoriums. How did that happen? He’s now a semi-finalist on “America’s Got Talent” on NBC. Even Howard Stern likes him!

He’ll be playing one last time at his old standby location -- the 142 Throckmorton Theatre in his hometown of Mill Valley – before the national tour. That will take place next Sunday, August 12 at 7:30pm.
