If you want to see some live Music tonight some suggestions are
Revolution Cafe 3248 22nd St, San Francisco 8:30 PM-11:30 PM Showtime..Inspired by many world musical traditions, The Pickpocket Ensemble inhabit a country all their own. Original and fresh, this quintet creates a contemporary chamber café music that moves both body and soul. Highly recommended!!! N/C
Bar Fluxus 18 Harlan Pl, San Francisco 9:00 PM-1:30 AM Showtime. Vibrason is another great band out of the Bay Area. Very reminiscent of some of the Cal Tjader bands. Highly recommended.. $10 Cover Charge.
Verdi Club 2424 Mariposa St, San Francisco 9:00 PM-11:30 PM Showtime… 29th Street Swingtet is another of my local favorite ensembles. I love that their music is heavily influenced by Django Reinhardt but includes all sorts of flavors in their original compositions – blending gypsy jazz, swing, bebop, latin, blues and touches of pop music. Highly recommended!! $10 Cover Charge
Yoshis 510 Embarcadero West, Oakland 8:00 PM Showtime.. Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee J.D. Souther is “one of the most celebrated songwriters of his generatio.n Raised on a steady diet of big band and jazz during his childhood, Souther has routinely returned to that music—as well as the genius songwriters of the early 20th century (Gershwin, Cole Porter)—for inspiration. On his latest studio album, Tenderness, Souther combines these musical threads, striking a perfect balance between understated jazz and the ineffable pop narratives that have been the backbone of much of his greatest work.. Highly recommended!! $39-$65 Cover Charge.
