Local Music

Founded in 1968 as a summer outreach program, Young Musicians Choral Orchestra has transformed the lives of over 3,000 Bay Area Youth. Under the leadership of Executive Director Daisy Newman, who took the helm in 2003, the program erupted from a modest youth music program into a national model, providing a rigorous and robust combination of musical training, academic reinforcement, and personal development for low-income, underprivileged children.

Today’s local music is by Hoxton Mob from San Francisco. They describe their sound as “sad songs, in major keys.” 

Hoxton Mob will be playing at Great American Music Hall tomorrow (03.13), opening for another San Francisco band, The Shams. Doors open at 8pm.

Briget Boyle is a singer-songwriter, guitar player based in Oakland. With training in fields as diverse as Balkan folk singing, African drum and dance, Swedish massage, and theatre tech, Briget is an engaging and complex performer who brings a lifetime of discovery and struggle to her music. She joins host Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 3/11 at 9 pm.

What are you doing Friday the 13th?  Don’t be afraid to go out, especially when you can join the Friday Night Dance Party at the Empress Theater in Vallejo.  Music will be provided by the Zydeco Flames, from San Anselmo -- you’re hearing them now. Expect to start dancing at 8pm -- and keep dancing until it’s over!

The song you’re hearing now is by Victor Krummenacher. If you don’t know HIS name, you may remember a band he co-founded called Camper Van Beethoven.  

Victor Krummenacher is still with “Camper,” but he’s going to play music from his new solo album on Saturday (03.07) at Armondo’s in downtown Martinez. He takes the stage about 8pm.
