Words by Annie Bacon Seven or eight years ago in the Mission District, there was a sweet and eccentric folk music scene that buzzed around Amnesia, the Mission District venue where heart far exceeds square footage. The ample crowds were always friendly, warm-hearted, and ready to sway their hips. Musicians like Kacey Johansing, Ash Reiter, Michael Musika, Quinn Deveaux, the Blank Tapes, Sonya Cotton, and many others cycled through regularly, and singer-songwriter Sean Hayes was unofficial royalty. A few years later, most of that scene’s musicians are gone to New York, LA, Nashville, Oakland, or beyond, and Sean Hayes has [...]
