Guitarist Terrence Brewer's trio will be joined for this show by flugelhornist Dmitri Matheny, whom Meetup members were thrilled by when he recently performed with his own group at Chapel of the Chimes' jazz series.
COST: $10 to $15 sliding scale for the show. Buy your own tickets at the door (no advance sales). I think this venue may be CASH ONLY. Seating is general admission in this informal, largely volunteer-run venue.
PRE-SHOW DINNER OPTION: When you RSVP, indicate if you want to join me for dinner beforehand at Chili Cha Cha 2, a good, inexpensive Thai restaurant about a block away.
WHERE/WHEN TO MEET: If doing dinner, meet in front of the restaurant at[masked]th Street (between Shotwell and Van Ness) by 5:45 p.m. If meeting for the show, meet out front of the Red Poppy's door on 23rd Street between 7:00 p.m. and 7:10 p.m.
HOW TO FIND ME: I'm WF, Boomer generation with short auburn hair. I'll send my cellphone number and more details on what I'm wearing to RSVPers, so be sure to check your email for that and bring my cellphone number with you. If I get a seat before all RSVPers show up, I'll post my seat location to this Event page so you can find me.
SHOWTIME: The show starts at 7:30 p.m.; the doors open at 7:00 p.m. Because this is such a small venue, shows here often sell out. (Concerts usually include 2 sets plus an intermission, for a total duration of 2 1/4 hours.)
Info on the musicians:
LOCATION/TRANSIT: Easy walk from 24th Street BART station or assorted Muni bus stops. If driving, look for street parking in the area.
