The original Scratch-n-Sniff Variety Show’s debut performance was a bit of a dream come true for me! Almost 15 years ago, I saw a variety show in San Francisco that spurred my interest in creating one myself. While I had produced one back in my hometown in Ohio, the experience of creating one in San Francisco was a whole other level. Oh My Continue reading
The Zestiest New Year’s Eve Party will be at Cafe Du Nord in SF! 7×7 Magazine listed the Howlin Rain & Vetiver Show at Café Du Nord as one of “The 15 Best Places to Pop Champagne This New Year’s Eve” in San Francisco. The San Francisco Live Indie Music Meetup Continue reading
Whether you are visiting SF, new to town, or home grown, the following music jams are all worthy experiences for musicians and singers:
1) Ocean Beach Jam
Catch a sunset! Play some music! Meet nice people! What’s not to like about this live music jam? All sorts of music was played (based on whatever musicians/singers attend) and the group plays, sings and dances as the sun sets over Ocean Beach. This beach jam was comprised of musicians (all ages and all levels playing acoustic instruments), singers, and other music loving sorts that gather monthly (normally the last Sunday of the month) at Ocean Beach. It is organized as part of Continue reading
Another worthy, wacky experience to have in San Francisco awaits you at the Audium-Theatre of Sound-Sculptured Space. “Audium is the only theatre of its kind in the world, pioneering the exploration of space in music. The theatre’s 176 speakers bathe listeners in sounds that move past, over, and under them. ‘Sound sculptures’ are performed in darkness in the 49-seat theatre.” Even after 40 years, the creator and composer, Stan Shaff, still Continue reading
Not all music festivals are created equal! The High Sierra Music Festival (HSMF) located in the lovely Sierra mountain area of Quincy, CA was all that I could ask for in a musical festival. After 24 years, these folks have figured out a few things. For me, the HSMF Continue reading
Ah…my first time checking out the live music at the free Bicycle (powered) Music Festival on Saturday, June 23, 2012 did not disappoint! Actually, the experience far exceeded my expectations, but then again I really didn’t know what to expect.
Café Du Nord, The Elbo Room, and The Bottom of the Hill are three unique live original music venues that you need to experience in San Francisco. If you live in SF, and enjoy live music, undoubtedly you will be back at these places again and again. Each venue has history, character, and typically offers a rockin good time. These aren’t places groups typically play their first or twenty first gig, at least not on a weekend night. These venues tend to feature acts that are “up and coming” –and have at least a small following. Local, national, and international acts bless these inspired stages. Two hundred people will pack any of these places. Continue reading
Gotta love the live music house party scene in San Francisco! Sometimes you get lucky and happen upon something really, really cool. This was it –an evening of inspired tea and music emanating from intriguing invented instruments. Continue reading
