San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus Christmas Eve Performance

It is that time of the year again, and the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus are putting on their annual holiday performance this Christmas Eve, titled Shine. This year is the 35th anniversary of the group, who’s first performance was during a moving candlelight vigil held for Harvey Milk on the night of his tragic death. The chorus has played an integral role in LGBT activism over the years, but is also known for their sheer musical excellence, which will certainly be on display this December 24.

There will be 300 participants in the performance which will go down at the Castro Theatre at 5:00, 7:00 and 9:00 PM. Recording artist Matt Alber and SF Opera soprano Marina Harris will make special guest appearances, and of course you will get to hear plenty of Christmas and Holiday favorites. Artistic Director Dr. Timothy Seelig has been reluctant to spill the beans regarding exactly what to expect at this performance, meaning there should be some very special surprises.

Whether you are a member of the San Francisco LGBT community, an ally, or simply a lover of great choral and holiday music, this event is one you will definitely want to check out if time and funds permit. Tickets are $25-$35, and they can be purchased here.

So often, when you hear the term “soul party” you automatically expect a night of rousing ’60s and ’70s jams to get your groove on and dance to. This is where “Lost & Found,” a different type of soul party held every Tuesday night at happening SF hotspot the Make-Out comes into play. Rather than a night of funky and uptempo soul jams, stalwart Bay Area DJs Lucky and Primo spin slow and sexy soul all night.

You can expect to hear some really rare dusty old vinyl cuts as these guys are not messing around when it comes to their collection. If you really love great vintage vinyl, soul music, and a kickback vibe, this is an event which is definitely for you. One of the best things about it, on top of everything else, is that it is free so you can save your money for drinks. Come on out and slow dance to Lost & Found next Tuesday at the Make-Out room and you are sure to have a great time if you are a true music lover or simply enjoy a night out on the town in a chill atmosphere.
