Peter Cincotti Does It His Way

Peter Cincotti creates music in the real time of his life. His songs fuse jazz, blues, pop, and sometimes a little rock and dance. He’ll perform at Feinstein’s at the Nikko April 24 and 25.

Gary Numan: Electric Pop

Gary Numan is a visionary musician who has done something few have managed to do: to move from one style to another in his career while growing his fan base. He’ll perform at The Fillmore on April 6.

Lynda Carter, center stage

When my editor asked if I’d like to interview Lynda Carter for her upcoming show at Yoshi’s, I hesitated for a minute and thought, ‘Wait; Wonder Woman sings?’ The answer: yes, she does.

Honey, Honey

It seems as though Honey Mahogany is everywhere these days. The season 5 ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ contestant has released an album, and recently played herself on the fourth episode of HBO’s gay series ‘Looking.’ She’ll soon be appearing at the hot Market Street nightspot Martuni’s.

Duncan Sheik: The Alchemist

With Grammy-winning music, seven albums, two Tonys for his musical accomplishments, and even a few film soundtracks, there’s no telling which of the many songs in Duncan Sheik’s repertory he and his band will play at their Yoshi’s concert on February 8. But fans and the newly interested will assuredly be entertained.

Lady Rizo @ Feinstein’s

Lady Rizo performs in San Francisco at Feinstein’s at the Nikko February 6 and 7. Her new album, ‘Violet,’ released in November 2013, is brilliance incarnate. Her stage shows are a terrific mix of what she calls “caburlesque.”

Erasure’s
Winter Wonderland

Electro duo Erasure have a new CD out just in time for the holidays. ‘Snow Globe’ includes both traditional songs and some original music, and Andy Bell discussed the new music in an interview.

Choir Boy: Matt Alber

Matt Alber performs in a special concert with the Cello Street Quartet on Thursday, March 28 at the Swedish American Hall (upstairs from Café Du Nord).

Le Jazz Hot

Jazz music in San Francisco; its rich past floats through open windows like melancholy notes from Chet Baker’s horn at the old Black Hawk. Today, the genre thrives at new and historic venues all over town.

Blondie & Devo
@ The Warfield

Two iconic pop bands, Blondie and Devo, perform September 10 at San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre, then September 11 at the scenic Mountain Winery in Saratoga.

Homo Hip-hop

A new generation of queer hip-hop homos almost luxuriously rap, sing, shimmy or vogue their way through tracks that talk, sing or are about their queerness if they feel like it, or about something else if they don’t.

Queer Cheer!

Ho, ho ho! It’s that time of year again. December’s holiday-themed live shows and concerts should please anyone with alternative and traditional tastes.

Cafe Cool

Not in the mood for crowded bars and clubs, but still want to be out late? San Francisco offers a host of cafes that are open into the wee hours of the morning and offer everything from sweet concoctions and confections to art, entertainment and even a little bit of hookah.
