San Francisco has always been a hot bed for it’s local music scene, yet sometimes you can’t find the good stuff without sifting through some really bad dive bars and sordid nights.
CitySessions came together with some folks who had a love of music, but felt a lack of music venues in the Western Addition, so they set up a live showcase.
More from their site and the 7 year anniversary which happens this Tuesday, August 10th:
CitySessions is a monthly acoustic music showcase in the Western Addition featuring the Bay Area’s best original music. CitySessions is hosted at Club Waziema, an Ethiopian restaurant/bar located at 543 Divisadero (between Hayes & Fell). Each month, a large crowd of music lovers packs Club Waziema’s back room to discover incredible local talent in this small, intimate venue.How it started
The concept of CitySessions came together over beers at the Toronado. A conversation about our love of live music and the lack of live music venues in the Western Addition led to the decision to set up a local music showcase. Our goal was to feature the Bay Area’s best musicians in a setting where their music would be truly appreciated.
