This Friday at Oakland’s Uptown, a free local showcase will celebrate the theme “A Christmas Miracle,” starring Man/Miracle, Grand Lake, Sparrows Gate (San Luis Obispo) and Pancho San (9pm).

Pancho-san is the freshly spawned collaboration between a variety of Bay Areans including Eli Crews, the head engineer of New Improved Recording in Oakland and the host of our New Improved LIVE sessions. Their first album Oh Mellow Melody enlists the help of members of Beulah, Grand Lake, Port O’Brien, Rogue Wave, and Sonya Cotton.
