Music to Your Ears

Vanilla Pop Quiz
As of press time, Martini Grille has been handed 22 liquor-law violation citations, and its future as a bar is looking pretty shaky. (Remember, it only takes three strikes to get your license suspended.) But even with that uncertain haze hanging around the East Nob Hill venue, one thing's crystal: Vanilla Pop has left the building.

Warehouse 21 Re-Opening
It’s come back for your children!
By Simon McCormack
It took 18 months of waiting. Eighteen months of fundraising, volunteering and wondering when it would all be over. But Warehouse 21 is back, and it's itching to crank up the volume. “It took a lot of endurance,” says Warehouse 21 Executive Director Ana Gallegos y Reinhardt. “But we did it, and we survived.”

The Fratellis Here We Stand · Judas Priest Nostradamus · Wolf Parade At Mount Zoomer
The Fratellis takes guitar rock that’s better after a few pints and makes you drink ’til you puke. The glammy, peach-fuzz guitars and loudmouth vocals set the table for a good time. But the mid-tempo never speeds up or puts on the brakes, and it begins to sound as though The Fratellis gave itself 11 chances to make a radio single. Each attempt sounds eerily similar to the last. On second thought, you can probably find a better record to get drunk to. (SM)
Boyz II Men • R&B
By August March
On Sunday, Feb. 14, the Legends Theater at Route 66 Casino presents a concert by romantic balladeers and masters of a capella ruminations on love and life, Boyz II Men. An R&B group (now a trio, formerly and originally a quartet) with an affinity for soulful musical wanderings through the heart of human affection, Boyz II Men first made the scene in the 1990s with radio-friendly hits like “End of the Road,” “I’ll Make Love to You” and “One Sweet Day,” an epic tune to forever love they recorded with super-chanteuse Mariah Carey. In the years since they rose to the top of the pops, one member, Michael McCary departed the ensemble, leaving an essential trio comprised of tenors Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris as well as baritone Nathan Morris. Together, these three still bring the flavor of love to life as they tour around a gratefully enchanted planet of men and women. Tickets for this all-ages performance range in price from $35-$70 while romance fills the air beginning at 8pm.
