Devil's Acre

When Jazz at Pearl's, the venerable North Beach nightspot, closed its doors early in 2003, the San Francisco jazz scene took a long, hard look in the mirror. The resulting outcry was deafening. “It's the end of live jazz in San Francisco,” declared the pundits, “the last real jazz club in the city is gone.” This wasn't exactly true, but it was close enough, and dire enough, to get every musician, jazz fan and media outlet in the area up in arms. As the good book would say, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

But then a funny thing happened. Literally hours after the first edition of All About Jazz: San Francisco came off the press, also bemoaning of the loss of Pearl's, word began to filter out that the club wasn�t quite so dead as it seemed.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
