The vibrancy of the San Francisco music scene doesn’t just depend on the talents of the City’s many musicians. City policies and practices can have a serious impact on local artists’ quality of life and on the venues where they perform. Things like the enforcement of noise ordinances, the availability of affordable housing, gentrification, and venue and event permitting matter, and when you’re voting for San Francisco’s next mayor this November, we hope you’ll be informed about where the candidates stand on these and other important issues.
To that end, we’re happy to co-sponsor a Recording Academy/CMAC-hosted forum featuring candidates for Mayor of San Francisco discussing music and nightlife-related issues. The event is free, and it takes place Monday, October 3rd at The Fillmore (6pm doors, 6:30 start). If you’re leery of just hearing people talk about music, though, you’ll probably be excited to know that there will also be live music! In addition to the forum, there will also be performances by Bob Mould and ZoÃ« Keating!
Again, admission is free, but you have to RSVP here.
