@ Florence Gould Theater at the Legion of Honor
Better than: Admiring paintings by the Dutch and Flemish masters.
For the uninitiated, the Florence Gould Theater sits in the basement of the Legion of Honor, an art museum near Land's End that dates back to 1924. The museum houses typical museum stuff — sculptures, paintings, elaborate ceilings. The auditorium itself fits nicely, with Corinthian columns surrounding the stage and a mural adorning the ceiling.
About five minutes into singer and guitarist Vinicius Cantuária's set last night, it started to make a lot of sense that his group was playing where it was.
