You’ve probably heard of Bay Area music mainstay Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks. But have you ever heard them perform live? The Chronicle says of Hicks, "So few truly original figures exist in pop music that Dan Hicks should be a national treasure."

He has a big 70th birthday celebration at San Francisco’s Davies Hall in April, but you can hear him in a more relaxed show tomorrow (February 24) at the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, in Livermore, starting at 8pm.

For many years Zoe Boekbinder had a recurring dream about being Princess of the Moon, and that lightness is reflected in her music.
