THE 2019 MUSIC ISSUE

As Madonna once sang, music makes the people come together — and the Bay Area has certainly embodied that lyric, nurturing innovative and talented artists across all genres, from hip-hop and rock to classical and EDM. Our region is also a top destination for A-list acts (this summer’s Outside Lands lineup: Paul Simon, Childish Gambino and Kacey Musgraves, to name a few). This month, we pay homage to the Bay’s musical past, present and future, featuring Roger McNamee and Moonalice (pictured above), not-so-secret drummer Nion McEvoy and songwriter Clare Rojas, guitar guru L. John Harris, (he of the SF Conservatory’s “Harris Guitar Collection“), the perpetual evolution of Amoeba Music, underground acoustic music venues and so much more!
