‘Sirens of Song’ to perform at ‘Hollywood Swing Canteen’

June 14, 2012

In the heart of hippie land, the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco, there is a 1940s swing dance and jazz club, Club DeLuxe. For the past 25 years the place has been packed with hundreds of 20 somethings every weekend pretending it is 1945. They dress from head to toe in vintage clothing down to tie bars and cufflinks for men and bobby sox and saddle shoes for women. When I lived there I remember an article in the San Francisco Chronicle, a reporter asked a young woman why she wanted to dress like her mom. The girl replied "my mom was a hippie; these are my grandma's clothes."
