Globalistic - Yoshi's San Francisco - 3/3/2010

by Keely Gerhold, Surfrider San Francisco Music Outreach Program volunteer

Surfrider helped kick off the Globalistic series at Yoshi’s Restraurant in San Francisco March 3rd with a little help from the band Mucho Axe.

Mucho Axe was full of South American flavor and brought great live music to Yoshi’s Restaurant. Globalistic is a live music series at Yoshi’s every Wednesday that brings global music to San Francisco by featuring local bands with a knack for worldly music. Before the band takes the stage, a Bay Area DJ spins a few tracks to get the crowd into a dancing and festive mood. This week is was DJ Beto.

The Music Outreach Program was represented at the entrance of the venue and got a shout out from our accommodating host, Robin Applewood, so the crowd knew what we were all about. Neel Singh and I represented Surfrider and had a few interested folks stop by to chat and get a reusable Surfrider tote bag. Thanks to Yoshi’s for allowing us to be the first non profit to rock it at Globalistic, the band Mucho Axe, our tabling friend Lindsey, the Yoshi’s staff and Robin!
