A surfer takes on a Maverick wave. A writer acquires an unexpected tenant – and his house plant. These stories and more told live on stage at the Victoria Theater in San Francisco. Fri. April 12 at 8pm.
KALW 91.7FM presents “Heard Here,” an interactive evening of storytelling. Inspired by real people in the Bay Area, this show will feature stories of ordinary locals who have gone through extraordinary circumstances – all told by some of the Bay's best writers, radio producers, and performers.
The phone is ringing and a constant stream of people are coming through the gated door. Sam Adato, a long-haired rocker and owner of the drum shop, buzzes them in from behind the counter.
The intimate shop is a maze of colorful stacks upon stacks of vintage drums. The walls are covered with posters – custom made by Adato – of drummers, rock and roll records, drum equipment and other trinkets he’s collected over the last 20 years from customers and friends. Everyone who comes through the door seems to know each other, it was a familiar place, a place for drummers.
