Photos: The Alarm at the Chapel

the Alarm (photo: Jon Bauer) Mike Peters of the Alarm seemed to be in bliss with his infectious energy that he shared with a very active, singing, loving audience at the Chapel over the weekend. He brought up local drummer, Nigel Twist, who played with the Alarm back in the day during some encore songs. He talked about how he was first inspired by Johnny Rotten back in 1976 and that the Alarm would never have existed without that inspiration. He then played "Anarchy In the U.K." by the Sex Pistols. Local singer Brad Brooks opened for the band. [...]

Natalie Merchant (photo: Jon Bauer) Natalie Merchant played a selection of pieces from her extensive 10 album solo work mixed with her hits from her 10,000 Maniacs days at the Masonic on Thursday, July 20, 2017. The first half of the set featured songs that were slow and a bit somber, while the second half was much more upbeat, where the band really loosened up. Merchant spoke about how she spent the day strolling and shopping in "cold" San Francisco, where she randomly bought a ceramic cat sculpture that she merrily gave to a late attendee and told him, "We waited for [...]

Photos: Con Brio at SFJAZZ

Con Brio (photo: Jon Bauer) Ziek McCarter is a high energy ball of fire. Each member in the seven-piece band that is Con Brio had a turn showing off their skills on their instruments at SFJAZZ Sunday night, June 18, 2017. They were all high energy, playing plenty of songs off their 2016 album Paradise and some new ones as well. One notable song started with his description of losing his father (shot six years ago by law enforcement in Texas) and the place was silent in respect.

It's difficult to fully detail every artist there, but it ranged from giants like Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Burr, Fred Armisen and Ice Cube to quickly-rising acts like Hannibal Buress, Vince Staples, Lizzo and many, many more. Let the photos speak for themselves and check out the incredible gallery below of the wide range of arts, comedy and music on display by our own [...]
