San Francisco Offside Festival
Jazz is alive and well and living in San Francisco! So say the creators of San Francisco Offside, and the many talented local musicians taking part in this year's inaugural festival.

Born of a passion to celebrate the unique creativity and diversity of the local jazz scene, SF Offside has gathered together some of the Bay Area's most exciting musical talent for an event unlike any other. The three-night festival showcases notable local musicians and composers, like Marcus Shelby, David Boyce, Darren Johnston, Lisa Mezzacappa, Erik Jekabson, Aram Shelton, Eric Garland, Marcus Stephens, Alex Pinto, and many more.

Sliding scale tickets start at $10/night (available at the door) or $25-$35 for a 3-night pass. If you can afford more, please consider purchasing tickets at a higher level to support the artists.

NIGHT ONE: "EXCURSIONS" - Thursday May 24th @ 8pm
El Valenciano, 1153 Valencia Street, San Francisco

We kick off with three ensembles that share mastery of traditional techniques coupled with fearless commitment to exploring innovative territories.

Lisa Mezzacappa's Bait & Switch
Rempis/Ochs/Johnston Trio
These Are Our Hours

NIGHT TWO: "ONWARD" - Friday May 25th @ 8pm
50 Mason Social House, 50 Mason Street, San Francisco

The second night takes a decidedly contemporary look at straight-ahead jazz and presents three Bay Area composers and their respective trios.

Alex Pinto Trio
Erik Jekabson Trio
Marcus Shelby Trio

NIGHT THREE: "JUNCTION" - Saturday May 26th @ 8pm
Secret location, San Francisco

The festival closes with an evening of genre-expanding music that intersects jazz in distinctive ways.

Secret Sidewalk
Klaxon Mutant Jazz All Stars
The Supplicants

A co-production of local jazz guitarist Alex Pinto and local music curator Laura Maguire, SF Offside was created to fill a perceived gap in the regional jazz festival circuit. With an exclusive focus on homegrown talent, the mission of SF Offside is to draw attention to the incredible creativity to be found right here in our own backyard and to build larger audiences for specifically local jazz offerings. The hope is that San Francisco ultimately gets the recognition it deserves as home to a rich, diverse, and exceptionally talented jazz community.
