Do you know the way to famously reclusive Bolinas?

If so, and you stop in at Smiley’s Saloon this Friday, you can hear the Blind Willies. This Bay Area band says its music is “gospel revised by thieves, pimps, poets, losers, children, and malcontents.” They also play the blues.

Music starts about 9pm . But remember, this is Bolinas, so be patient.

No, jazz legend Coleman Hawkins is not from the Bay Area, and he’s not back from the dead. But you’ll learn about him, and other jazz greats, in the Academy Award-nominated documentary, “A Great Day in Harlem,” which you can see at the Balboa Theater in San Francisco on Sunday (January 29).

The program also includes live jazz from Jimmy Ryan’s Balboa Be-Bop Band, both before the film, and then again after.

How about a happy pill? That’s how the San Francisco Chronicle describes the music of the band, Adios Amigo. The band is a side project of Johnny Major, drummer for another band named Il Gato. He says living in the Bay Area “allows one to write happy, hopeful, celebratory music.”

Adios Amigo will be performing on Friday (January 27) at the Hemlock Tavern in San Francisco.

Did you see the movie, “The Social Network”? If so, then you’ve heard music by Jon Bernson, who the Bay Guardian calls “a force of nature in the Bay Area music scene.” His current band, Exray’s, has a show this Saturday (January 21) at the Hemlock Tavern in San Francisco. They take the stage about 9pm.
