A special 10-year anniversary celebration with
MISNER & SMITH
MAURICE TANI & 77 EL DEORA
SOUND OF SIRENS
Saturday, March 8 7:30pm
$18 door / $15 advance
What a long, strange trip it's been! Misner & Smith co-headlining with Maurice Tani & 77 El Deora, are both celebrating their ten-year anniversaries this March with a big show in San Francisco. Opening for both artists is a new band, Sound of Sirens.
MISNER & SMITH
Misner & Smith are featured on the new Roots Channel. This new website showcases live performances from Seattle's state-of-the-art listening room at Empty Sea Studios. To quote a recent & great review for Seven Hour Storm from the music blog, Independent Clauses: “A beautiful, romantic, charming album - this is earnest, honest, unpretentious music, and it’s just lovely.”
Joining Misner & Smith onstage will be their good friend, Josh Yenne (The Easy Leaves, Mazzy Star), playing pedal steel and electric guitar!
Read music critic Robert Sproul's 2013 "blown away" review "Are you listening? We're taking calls" on Maurice Tani in No Depression, The Roots Music Authority:"Maurice Tani writes songs that I would call "Hillbilly Noir" that sound at once familiar, ethereal and beautiful." - No Depression
Opening: SOUND OF SIRENS
It feels fitting to be celebrating this musical marker in the city that both Misner & Smith and Maurice Tani have called home for so many years.

“Like a modern-day Patsy Cline, on par with Emmylou.” ~ San Francisco Bay Guardian
We can hardly wait for this refreshing new artist to come to Saint Cyprian’s this March. Nell has her feet firmly planted in roots, Americana, folk and bluegrass that has a vintage country tinge and a modern bent. She’s hip, funny and engaging and will lift your spirits with stories from her Southern roots in LA (Lower Alabama) J
Doors open 25 minutes before the concert. And, YES! There is free parking!
