Join us for San Francisco's latest gathering of artists & friends -
A Performing Art Salon that is open to the public -- in the style of artists' gatherings of eras gone by. Here we bring together performing artists, dancers, musicians, poets, writers, surrealist painters, and all the discontented demimonde to drink, dance, and share their work.

DON'T TALK ABOUT THAT
HEARD IT HEAR FIRST
Other notable performers include musicians, poets, and all-around interesting persons, in one evening of ethereal bliss -and potentially some spritzer.There will be food, drinks and of course, new art. And for the first time, SOMA SALON will feature an open mic. Join us to celebrate the power of creativity to engage our past, present, and (I know, I know) our future.
What: the Soma Salon: an Artists Showcase, in the heart of San Francisco.
When: January 22nd (Thursdays), 6:30p - 10:30p
Where: An Edwardian Artists' Apartment near Alamo Sq, in SF
(exact location to be revealed)
Featured Theatrical Showcases:
HEARD IT HEAR FIRST is a fleet-footed, modern-beatnik deconstruction of meditation, sex, performance, gender dynamics, love, and the need to spontaneously burst into song. It is not a musical, but a work of theater that can only really be described as 'this is why you still need theater'-ish.
DON'T TALK ABOUT THAT brings to the stage real stories of individuals as they struggle to make sense of their first-hand experience with death.
This new play in development combines scripted work with actor improvisation - as it fiercely explores what happens when we take the risk to share our most taboo stories in moments of intimacy.
Featured Performances by:
- Gabriel Bellman - published poet reads his poetry and spoken word
- Luigi Silverman - singer/songwriter performs original, yet unheard songs
There is no cover but this Party is by invite only. Please RSVP with your name and guests' names.
Location will be revealed via email closer to the date. Email thesomasalon [ at ] gmail [ dot ] com to RSVP.
* Please give the full name of the artist who invited you. *
A Brief History:
The SOMA Salon was born in an underground artists' warehouse space in the heart of San Francisco, in 2011. The Salon gives artists of all styles a chance to showcase their freshest, newest pieces and brings art, music, theatre, and sophisticated parties to unexpected, unique locales.
