Kelsey Breunig goes all the way to Eleven

Former Tin Can Ale House owner is booking shows at new venue—plus, more music news

Now that she’s no longer running Tin Can Ale House, former co-owner Kelsey Breunig has set up shop at Eleven, where she’s begun booking shows under the title Kelsey Allyn Booking.

In an email interview, Breunig says she got a cold call from the City Heights bar soon after she left Tin Can. At Eleven, she’ll share booking responsibilities with Another Zeke Productions, and she plans to put on about 15 to 20 shows a month featuring local and touring bands.

“I hope to begin placing shows at other venues as well very soon, or at least trying to,” she says. “But my main focus is Eleven right now.”

When she was at Tin Can, she had a hectic schedule; lately, she’s had more time to “enjoy life.” But she’s keeping busy, conducting all the business that goes with setting up shows. “I am not very good at standing still,” she says.

Meanwhile, co-owners Patrick Conway and Justin Rodriguez are putting their own mark on Tin Can. They’ve begun serving cocktails and introduced a free, Monday-night series to highlight country, folk, bluegrass and Americana music. The first show kicks off with a performance by Justin John on Monday, Sept. 10.

Also, they recently got a set of 15-inch monitors and an 18-inch, 500-watt subwoofer.

“You can really feel it in the floorboards when we crank up the 36 Chambers,” Conway says.


Hip-hoppers Apex Realm will play at Mélange, a fundraiser at Kava Lounge on Friday, Sept. 7. Organized by the local arts-based charity Project Donate, the show benefits East Hill Academy, a school for children with autism and associated learning disabilities. Jonny B & The Avenues, Zochi, Dexter Riley Xperiment and DJ Hevrock will also play.

Experimental rockers Platypus Egg will celebrate the release of their new album, Little Street of Happiness, at Electric Ladyland Art and Music Center (4944 Newport Ave. in Ocean Beach) on Saturday, Sept. 8. The Orphics, Avradelix and Unidentified Fusion Orangement will also play.
