This summer, San Francisco created a new process that makes it easier for bars, restaurants, and cafés to host live music. Now it just needs the bands to show up.
Jocelyn Kane, executive director of the city's Entertainment Commission, is urging cafe and bar owners to apply for one of the city's new live performance permits, and hire musicians to perform in their businesses. She even wants artists to go to the proprietors of places they frequent and ask to play there.
“I want there to be live music everywhere,” she says. “It's easy now to get a permit for live music in San Francisco.”
