MELLOW SESSIONS @ HAIGHT
The Mellow Haight, San Francisco
8:30 PM, Ages: All
You'll arrive at a magical space called The Mellow Haight, a houseplant store by day and a private venue by night.
Early birds: Arrive 15min prior, to grab a good seat and for the concert to begin promptly. Before that time we can't allow anyone inside.
We offer performers a space that acts as the in-between of a concert hall and a bar - where folks actively feel and listen to the music. The audience is encouraged to interact with the performers directly, discuss the compositions, ask questions, and fall in love with live music.
- NOTE: Guests are welcome to BYOB - Please practice "pack in, pack out" and take ALL trash with you. Plan to bring cups, wine cork, etc as these items are not available on-site. Anyone drinking alcohol must be 21yrs+
Mellow Sessions is the next step in a journey of curating and producing unique concerts in intimate settings for the past 3 years. Produced by local musicians and composers, these sessions will feature original music and arrangements by the best musicians, DJs, and composers of the Bay Area, as well as touring artists. Always new artists, always a surprise!
Where we'll be:
The venue is located in the upper Haight (corner of Masonic & Haight). Upper Haight is a historic and deeply-rooted neighborhood with ties dating back to experimental music, rock, jazz, blues during the '60s and a counter-cultural revolution that eventually took over the US. and the world.
At The Mellow Haight, we'll be surrounded by lush plants, greenery, and a laid-back vibe. All the right elements to stimulate our minds and engage in active listening, interaction, and enjoyment!
Accessibility: The Mellow Haight has a bathroom for guests to use and it is located upstairs. Guests with accessibility needs, please contact us 48hrs in advance.
