This is a group for anyone who enjoys music that breaks boundaries, defies genres and crosses cultures. From Americana to African, and Jazz to J-Pop - our ears are open to anything that moves us, or makes us move. Meet up with like minded people of all ages, genders and cultures for live music shows in San Francisco and around the Bay Area. We provide a safe, welcoming group for anyone who wants to explore the geographic and cultural boundaries of music, played live. We'll share news of upcoming events, and introduce you to great new music you might not have heard about otherwise. Anyone can suggest a great new meetup. (And if you are also a tangential musician, this group might just help you connect with like minded souls who want to play this kind of stuff for the rest of us!).

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
