The Revolution Cafe is a great place for a drink and some live music. Often its so packed that the party spills out into the streets. Its almost impossible to walk by without stopping for a moment to take in whatever happens to be going on that night. In the mood for a little Flamenco? “…LoCura creates an original blend of irresistible, high energy music that bridges cultures and transcends borders. Mesmerizing flamenco footwork and solid bass lines, fiery guitar and hard-hitting percussion support rich vocals with soaring harmonies, creating a vibrant collage of sound and movement. Emotionally charged music that ignites a pulsating dance party, provides food for the soul and uplifts the spirit.” – The Independent. Word is they’ll be shooting a music video so look your best! Fri., Jan. 22. 8:45pm. Free. Revolution Cafe. 3248 22nd St. 415.642.0474
