If you even dabbled in local music in the last decade and a half you might have experienced Dominic Miranda‘s work: in The Record Winter, in Rex Goliath, as Payphone. It’s more likely, though, you experienced it secondhand, through the other artists he collaborated with and inspired.
Since the mid-’00s, his presence was a consistent, anchoring force in notoriously boom-and-bust South Bay music scene. In October of last year, Miranda passed away from complications of a heart condition, leaving a clear loss in San Jose music. And on Saturday night, the breadth of his influence will be apparent as artists he worked with and influenced will gather (digitally) to pay tribute to his body of work.
On February 13, via Zoom, expect performances of Dominic’s music from artists up and down the West Coast, like Starover Blue, MAITA, Young Elk, and Mothers Worry, with more to be announced. If you’re not from San Jose, you can read Kendall Sallay-Milotz (of Starover Blue)’s loving tribute to her friend and collaborator here and learn more about Miranda’s life and work.
Things start at 7:30. The livestream is free, but you can register and get the Zoom link here.
