2021 Live Performances


Obviously, the first half of 2021 was very, very quiet while the world was still trying to recover from lockdown.  But then, starting in late June with outdoors shows, and gradually shifting back into normal, the pace of live performance attendance really started to pick up.
This was mostly a new set of bands, a veritable who's who of SF "fog pop".   And some opportunities missed, it wouldn't be until the middle of 2022 until I managed a successful capture of The Reds Pinks & Purples.

2022 and beyond will get their own post at some point, will try to get this done by late January 2023.
