Producer, keyboardist and sound experimenter Money Mark makes funky, retro-flavored riffs. His infectious melodies, often recorded on vintage equipment, have played key roles in collaborations with artists as such as Jack Johnson, Beck, Yoko Ono, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Beastie Boys. Mark continues to produce, remix, compose for film, collaborate and co-write with many diverse artists. Money Mark will be joined by percussionist Alfredo Ortiz, who has played with the Beastie Boys, Offspring, Ozomatli, Blackalicious, Tito & Tarantula and Morningwood. Primary Structures is SF locals Jason Byers, Brian Caraway, Matt Stromberg and Kyle Williams. Primary Structures is swamp rock legend John Fogertys neo-folk / pop reincarnate. Named the city's "Best Mood Setter" by 7x7 Magazine, DJ Felinas lush sound centers around music from and inspired by the equatorial diaspora.
The benefit will take place on Thursday, May 19th, at 8 pm at 111 Minna Gallery. The gallery is located at 111 Minna Street (at Second Street) in downtown San Francisco. More info & buy advance tickets here
