Here and there around the Bay Area, shows are still happening — with some obvious changes to the usual live-music experience. Here's what it was like for our photographer Jon to experience Jazz Mafia's Cosa Nostra Strings' new "Pod Patio" series, performed in a backyard in Oakland and livestreamed to YouTube. This week featured Lilan Kane on vocals.

Seats for you and your pod at future concerts will be raffled off weekly — keep an eye on Jazz Mafia's Instagram for more info.
