…I’ll be right here, in this lovely city, at these awesome events:
April 3. San Francisco Civic Symphony Spring Concert. Featuring an arrangement by dear friend Yvette Holzwarth, who is coincidentally performing her MFA Grad Recital at CalArts this weekend!
April 7. Therianthrope @ Red Poppy Art House. Tabla aficionado Miles Shrewsbery is another old friend from the UCLA days. These guys are based out of San Diego, but just so happen to be bringing their mind-blowing sounds up to the Bay Area for an evening.
April 14-23. The Triplets of Belleville with Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville. I’ve always wanted to see this film, PLUS, the soundtrack will be performed live (directed by composer Benoît Charest himself)! Fun/shameless fact: we performed a snippet of “Belleville Rendez-Vous” in our ’08 RCC show.
April 16. Record Store Day/Playland Music Festival. Record Store Day is one of my favorite days of the year, as long as I’m not at Amoeba (sooooo crowded). This time, I’m gonna check out the mini music festival going on in my hood, and pop into Noise while I’m there.
April 17. Spencer Owen Timeshare @ The Hemlock. My favorite dudes, at one of my favorite venues. Haven’t seen the other bands, but I listened to the featured track on Crown Larks’ Bandcamp, and I’m sold.
April 29. Contemporary Color @ Proxy. It’s happening, and it’s free!! David Byrne’s collab with WGI (along with St. Vincent, Tune-Yards, Ira Glass, and others) was made into a documentary, and it’s being shown at Proxy as part of the SF International Film Festival (also being shown at SFIFF: Soundbreaking and a 30th anniversary screening of Aliens). I cannot wait.
What else is going on this spring?? Please let me know about any other local events, musical or otherwise. I WANT TO GO TO ALL THE THINGS.
