Tonight: Free Discussion of the State of the S.F. Music Scene at The Chapel
A quick reminder: Tonight at the Chapel, a few people who may know something about the San Francisco music scene -- including yours truly -- will take part in a panel discussion on that very subject. "Nightlife & New Tech: The State of the SF Music Scene" will feature Patrick Brown of Different Fur Studios, Alexis Giles of Mox.TV, Julie Schuchard of Mezzanine and Tricycle Records, and me, your SF Weekly/All Shook Down music editor, all presented by a few city offices and concert app startup WillCall. WillCall founder Donnie Dinch will moderate.
The conversation will cover lots of the stuff we've been talking about on this blog and in the print pages of SF Weekly lately: how the scene is doing, whether the influx of tech money is changing things for the worse, and what we can do to keep things lively. Assuming no one throws chairs, rocks, or keys to a Google bus, it should be a good conversation. (And hey, if things do get thrown, that'll be interesting, too.) We'll also be taking questions and comments from the audience, so if you have something topical to get off your chest or ask of a panel of alleged experts, here's a good opportunity.

The panel starts at 6 p.m. (or a little after) at the Chapel, 777 Valencia St. It's free; you can RSVP via WillCall here. Hope to see you tonight.
