In a kaleidoscopic narrative, the New York Times bestselling author of Brothers recounts the gripping story of the civil strife and tragedies that beset San Francisco between 1967 and 1982 and led to the city's ultimate rebirth and triumph.
Salon founder David Talbot chronicles the cultural history of the city from the late 1960s to the early 1980s when figures such as Harvey Milk, Janis Joplin, Jim Jones, and Bill Walsh helped usher San Francisco from backwater city to thriving metropolis.
Come enjoy Friday Night Jazz, featuring Hot City
An ensemble like no other, HOT CITY has established an aesthetic of New Orleans style hot jazz and classic swing which they augment with a vast array of exotic musical elements, from Latin and Caribbean rhythms to Pacific Island themes and Middle Eastern melodies, forming an intoxicating aural palette that has been referred to as “SWINGXOTICA”.
Returning to his California home after two years of recording and touring throughout the United States and Europe, bassist and vocalist Zack Sapunor did so with the notion of a new ensemble that was steeped in the classic “hot” jazz sound. HOT CITY truly is that band. The group features regular members William Dendle (2014 “Musician of the Year” at Jazz Bash By The Bay) on plectrum guitar and banjo and bright young talent Jeff Kreis (Crescent Katz, Element Brass Band) with his red hot trumpet, plus frequent guest musicians. HOT CITY explores musical flavors from around the world -- all the while bringing it home with their finely honed enthusiasm for the work of classic jazz masters like Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Fats Waller and many more giants, famous and obscure. Anyone who witnesses a HOT CITY performance will experience the undeniable pleasure of hearing musicians who have dedicated to mining this rich musical tradition with not only competence and expression, but with pure joy and enthusiasm.
Enjoy the best local and organic produce, flowers, pastured meats, seafood, organic cheeses, yogurt and milk, breads, baked goods, nuts, local wine, jams, honey, hummus and knife sharpening. The brunch and lunch options are enough to make you a regular! This is a rain-or-shine market, operating year-round on Saturdays from 9 am - 2 pm.
