Sunday Skool: Jazz Mafia, Vau De Vire, Gift of Gab, Lateef
Sunday Skool is a new series presented by Jazz Mafia and Vau De Vire Society exploring new dimensions in sound and visual experience. For any of you who witnessed the Treat Social Club series from 2012-2016, this collaboration picks up where that left off and takes things in even more unexpected places. For a year we've been searching for the perfect venue and as soon as we saw Great Northern, we knew this was it. This club is one of the coolest new spots in the Bay; Killer sound system, large stage, top notch lighting, stage surrounded by projection, beautiful architecture, asymmetric room layout, multiple aerial performance points and much more. perhaps most important, the venue is excited for us to use the room in new and unexpected ways, which is really the key for doing the sort of immersive/multi-faceted performance that we came to be known for at Treat Social Club. For this kickoff show, we're going big. For the "show" that happens from 7:30-10pm, we've got the same 10 piece Jazz Mafia ensemble that tore it up in Oregon this summer at the Eclipse Festival. From Vau De Vire, we have 8 of the Bay Areas top Circus Arts performers doing Aerial, pole, contortion and all that craziness. At 10pm after the immersive show, we switch into afterparty mode with Gift of Gab and Lateef from Blackalicious backed by Jazz Mafia followed by DJ Platurn finishing the night off. The night is hosted by Kid Beyond and promises to be unlike anything you've ever experienced!
