Today's Local Music: Foreverland

You know this song – yes you do! It’s Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” as performed by Foreverland. This 14-piece band, formed in San Francisco in 2009, doesn’t imitate the King of Pop, but they say they do “carry out Michael’s righteous mission to move audiences’ hearts and dancing feet.”

Foreverland is “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’” on Friday, April 11that the historic Bimbo’s 365 Club in San Francisco. Doors open at 8:00pm.

Poster designed by R Black

This is Audiograph--the Bay Area’s sonic signature. 

Each week, we’ll play you a sound recorded somewhere in the Bay Area. Your job? Listen to the sound (in the player above), figure out where it was recorded, and what exactly it is, then call us to let us know.

If you think you can identify this Audiograph sound of the week, call 415-264-7106. Also, tell us where to record next. We’ll give away a KALW t-shirt every week to one lucky caller.
