I’m playing twice during MAPP: The Mission Arts &  Performance Project
First at El Jardin Secreto’s Songwriter Showcase – 5pm-6:30pm 
Harrison Street between 23rd and 24th ( look for the sign on the sidewalk :)
San Francisco California 94110
The Mission is at its creative best during Mission Arts & Performance Project weekends. There’s literally art and music seeping out of every nook and cranny, and in this case, garden. Curator Cristina Ibarra has fashioned a whole evening of art, music and food, and I’m part of the songwriter line-up that’s leading off the evening. From 5:00-6:30 – a bevy of Bay Area songwriters with be performing mini-sets. Featuring myself, as well as Jay Trainer, Tom Rhodes, Robin Applewood, and Katiana. While you’re listening, enjoy homemade tapas by Lovage Cooking and a visual exhibition by Hannah Quevedo. While the party continues in El Jardin, I’m  moving on to play a set at Secret Studios, 2707 Folsom Street @ 23rd @ 7pm. Ole!
