Today's Local Music: Sinister Dexter

What’s that you’re hearing? It’s Sinister Dexter, a horn-heavy funk and soul band from Mountain View. They've evolved over the years from swing and blues into funk and soul at the urging of their audience. They say their goal is to be “the local band that we would go out of our way to see ourselves.”

You can go out of your way to see them this Friday March 22 at Tupelo, in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood. Music begins around 8pm.

And they’re not allowed in the 19th Street or 12th Street stations during commute hours at all. But this week, BART has opened up all hours and stations to bikers. It’s a trial period, and to make it work, BART officials and cycling groups are urging to riders follow the rules: no bikes on the first three cars during peak hours, and no bikes on crowded trains.
