Although Coda Supper Club in the Mission District isn’t your typical hipster haunt, the upscale club was home to 11 local indie bands from the Bay Area last Tuesday night; covering classics from the Velvet Underground and Nico.
While none of the bands could quite replicate Nico’s sexy German drone or Lou Reed’s particular brand of crazy, there was a rousing rendition of “Run Run Run” and “Femme Fatale.”
Coda featured two separate show times at both 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. to cater to the dinner and drinking crowd. I, for one went to the later show and despite the somewhat stuffy menu, they did have $6 sweet potato fries. That combined with the sultry tunes was no doubt the reason the place was packed all night — not a bad deal.
Despite the lack of any Andy Warhol superstar-esque performances, this was one instance where a cover band performance didn’t include bad ’80s hair or any tributes to Journey. Win!
