Coming up on Monday October 29 is the San Francisco Roots Music Association (SFMRA) performance of Portishead’s amazing “Dummy” album. They’ll giving the Great American Music Hall (GMAH) a trip-hop bath. Better yet, SF-EMM member Antonio Sage is laying down the bass in the band!
Go check it out and get tickets before they sell out:

Thank you to McKay Garner (of doppio), CleverCQ/CCQ, Bitwise (Christopher Arnold), Extent of the Jam (Louis Gorenfeld). And also thanks to SAE Institute San Francisco for hosting us!
McKay Garner of the band “doppio” gives an in-depth tutorial on “keyboard drumming”: using a drumKAT MIDI controller with Ableton Live to create the beats and melodic lines heard on their latest self-titled album. McKay also talks about the band’s creative process and their participation in the Music Video Race.

The next installment of the Mobile Music Meetup will be happening Monday September 17 at the Morac Lounge on 16th St near Valencia. This isn’t our (SF-EMM) event but they’re kind of a sister group to us. Even better: a few people (including moi) are playing music straight from iPads and iPhones!
Cool simple demo
