DJ Britt Govea will be spinning, rocking and countrifying Brick & Mortar.

Show starts at 9 PM. $3 Trumer Pils and $5 Sailor Jerry cocktails all night. For more info check out Wood Shoppe on Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter.

Deli: How is 2012 shaping up for Ferocious Few? 

FF: 2012 has been eventful for us. We are finishing up an album that is unlike anything I've done before. My band headlined The Great American Music Hall in March. I hit Austin for SXSW. All the while Ive been scheming about big exciting things to come. Berlin sounds nice.

Deli: How is the new album going to differ from "Juices?"

FF: I have put everything into my work and feel great about the product. We are gearing up to leak a song soon... Stay tuned!

Deli: There have been some comparisons to Johnny Cash's sound, is he someone that has influenced Ferocious Few?

FF: Yeah, we were drinking buddies. In another life.

Deli: What's the first concert that you ever attended and first album that you ever bought?

FF: First concert, the Cramps, Halloween 1984 Mabuhay Gardens, when I was 3 months old. First Albumi picked out was Guns n Roses when I was 4.

Deli: Describe the best live gig you've ever played.

FF: I think some of the best shows I have played have been on the streets of San Francisco, we played a 1000 times on them streets. Blood sweat and tears. Love San Francisco

Deli: Who are you guys currently listening to?

FF: I pretty much stopped listening to any but my new album.

Deli: What was the best show you've seen and why?

FF: Bjork at the Piere in SF. Going to her show was like being in a real spiritually uplifting church. I can't really describe it any other way. Have been listening to my new album mostly, over and over finely tuning it. for the last 8 months

Deli: If you could make music in another time, when and where would it be?

FF: Tomorrow night at Amnesia in San Francisco.

Deli: What's the worst job you've ever had?

FF: Either night shift at Trader Joe's or baking at Noah's Bagels. They were fun to me, because I like working hard, but I felt treated like a hamster on the wheel. There were so many nice people workin with me at those jobs.

Deli: What do you love most about the Bay Area?  

FF: I love how expensive it is to live here and I love the parking tickets. The price you pay and pay and pay.

Deli: What's your favorite venue in the Bay Area?

FF: Bimbo's 365 Club.

Deli: Where's your go-to spot to eat in San Francisco?

FF: Stable cafe 17th and Folsom. Light breakfasts from their own farm and really good coffee! Oh yeah, and a yard with a pie shop!

Deli: If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what song would it be?

FF: That sounds terrible. "This is the song that never ends, it goes on and on my friend, somebody, started singing it just for fun, but then continued singing it forever just because. because AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

Deli: Who in the band, if anyone, is a formally trained musician?

FF: I just had a 1/2 hr opera vocal lesson. I am a baritone. that's about it.

Deli: And last but not least, because I'm a film lover, what's your favorite movie of all time?

FF: Money Masters a Documentary on YouTube. Watch it!
