is comprised of three flute players, two guitarists, and a percussionist who combine their prodigious talents to play the enchanting music of Brazilian-born, San Francisco-based composer Carlos Oliveira. The unique instrumentation creates a sound evocative of the pifano flute, a rustic bamboo instrument found in Northeast Brazil, which Oliveira just toured.

Joe Klocek is not only the SF Weekly's 2011 comedian of the year but he has risen to the top of the Bay Area's vast storytelling scene as well. On Underground Sound he'll be premiering his folk/pop ballads which are inspired by the likes of Wilco, Colin Hay and Damien Rice. Confessional, simple and lush, they all sound a little like where they were written; vacant hotel rooms.

Stolen cars, high school football stadiums, ghost hospitals, greasy griddles and trolls populate Tom's revealing, passionate and often very funny songs. The staggering range of melodic idioms that lifts his almost cinematic imagery coupled with his superlative storytelling skills have established him as a musician in possession of an authentic voice. Bruce Pachtman accompanies on drums.
>> ABOUT UNDERGROUND SOUND:
When's the last time a new music series opened in San Francisco? How about a new series that occurs in a theater and is devoted to popular music? And rock. And World music and classical music, individuals, ensembles, acoustic, electric--though mostly acoustic cause the theater contains only 70 seats. Even if you're in the last row (which would be row 8), you're not all that far from the performers. It's essentially an intimate concert hall. With reasonably priced tickets.
