article imageSan Francisco's Third Eye Blind plans free show on Haight Street

San Francisco - San Francisco alternative rockers Third Eye Blind are planning a free performance next week in the city's famed Haight-Ashbury district.
The free, all-ages show is planned to begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 28, inside of Amoeba San Francisco records, the gigantic former bowling alley at the northern end of Haight Street, just across Stanyan Street from Golden Gate Park.
No tickets are needed for the show, which has apparently been scheduled to promote the band's first new album in six years, "Dopamine", currently available on the group's Mega Collider Records.
Third Eye Blind probably is most famous for its 1997 hit, "Semi-Charmed Life" from its first album, which rocketed the group, and Jenkins, to fame in the 1990s.
Dopamine is Third Eye Blind's fifth studio album, after Blue in 1999, Out of the Vein in 2003 and Ursa Major in 2009.
The group, which has undergone a variety of sometimes-contentious personnel changes over the years, says it plans to perform an acoustic set of songs from "Dopamine" and from some past albums when it performs Nov. 28.
"The songwriting chronicles the personal relationships that have come and gone, and the rapidly changing world we live in," the band said. "A lot can change in six years, and while the sound has progressed, the recordings retain the Third Eye Blind fans new and old have come to love."
The Amoeba Records venue is said to hold upwards of 1,000 people.
The record store was known to San Francisco residents for decades as the Park Bowl bowling alley before being converted to a retail establishment in 1996.
Before it was a bowling alley, the Haight Street location was the site of a street car barn for now-defunct Market Street Railway, which was bought out by present-day San Francisco Municipal Railway in 1944.
