This event is all ages
San Francisco’s longest running storytelling series joins dance music experts Marc & The Casuals to bust a move and a groove with an evening of stories, comedy, soul music, and surprises. The night starts promptly at 8:30 with stories by some of our favorite riotous raconteurs & righteous rockers, followed by the kind of boogaloo frenzy that Marc & The Casuals are famous for. After a set of hilarious true tales, hosts Beth and Arline will hit the dance floor with the audience for a classic San Francisco night that might leave you aching the next day. (but in the best possible way). Expect a musical ensemble of 20+ musicians and vocalists including Etienne deRocher, Fredo Ortiz, Persephone’s Bees, Brigid Dawson, and Karina Denike, and some very special surprise guests. Don’t miss this one!
