Music: Mondo Loko

The music you’re hearing is by Mondo Loko of Berkeley. Perhaps you heard them last summer at Ashkenaz, where they had their first public performance. Now the group brings its version of Samba Funk and Samba Rock to the Cigar Bar & Grill on Montgomery Street in San Francisco this Thursday (03.22). Music starts at 9:30pm.

Even Taylor

The song you’re hearing is by Even Taylor of Oakland. Her blend of melodic folk music and the occasional pop-rock cover will make you think, laugh, and maybe play the kazoo – if there are enough to go around.

She's playing a cozy concert this Friday, March 16 at Matching Half Café in San Francisco, starting about 8pm.

Local Music: Rumbaché

The music you’re hearing is by Rumbaché [Room Bah SHAY]. This Bay Area band combines many styles, from timba and bomba to funk and salsa – with some Stevie Wonder thrown in.

They’re performing on Sunday (03.11) at The Sausalito Seahorse. We think they’ll want you to get off your seat and dance, because there’s a free dance lesson at 3pm. The music is scheduled from 4 to 8pm.

Roem Baur has a very distinctive voice. Now from San Francisco, he started singing as a boy in a small-town church in southern Texas. He’s playing a free show this Saturday (March 10) at the Apple Computer flagship store, near Union Square, at 2pm. Then he’s heading back to Texas – this time to sing at the South by Southwest festival in Austin.
