First Coda, now SoCha.
SoCha Cafe on Mission and Valencia is switching ownership and starting Jan 1st will not continue to host free nightly live music. The spot was owned by the same guy who owns Revolution Cafe, and for a long time they shared calendars and performers. I don’t blame them, the music part never quite took off and it always seemed like more of a sleepy study cafe rather than a live music venue. Most people didn’t even seem aware that this place even had live music.
If you haven’t been to a show there, tonight Classical Revolution is having their last weekly residency there. They have been holding down the gig for about 3 years. It’s an open classical chamber music jam. That’s right, classical music folks “jam” too!
