Event description

Description

Join us for a night of music and a special showing of a music video shot in the Secret Garden itself. Performers will include San Francisco songwriters E.G. Phillips, Louise Nalbandian and Christine Tence.

E.G. Phillips creates lyric driven songs with his own special blend of whimsy and cinematic imagery which he uses to give a wry take on dealing with the longings of the heart and the madness of existence. In possession of a degree in Geography, he comes from a country called the Midwest and his favorites include Bob Dylan and the Kinks as well as Duke Ellington… and that crowd (a touch of Tom Lehrer is also in the mix).

Louise Nalbandian is a piano player of Armenian heritage who's family has lived in San Francisco for generations. With bluesy stylings and a powerful voice, Louise brings her background of classical music to the fore in addition to her well honed contemporary pop/rock chops that she blends with jazz and soul.

Moved by the musical stylings of Janis Joplin and Etta James, Christine Tence plays music inspired by hardship. Her soulful vocals accompany her folk senses on the guitar, telling tales of the grit and dedication of true love, and the triumphant realization that the impossible is within our reach.

The highlight of the evening will be a showing of a music video for "The Albatross Song" by E.G. Phillips which was shot in the venue in December and features Nalbandian and Tence as well as many singer-songwriters who performed that evening as part of an open mic, many of whom dressed in nautical themed costumes. The Secret Garden is a character in its own right, sumptuously decorated with panache and loving detail. Weather permitting, a lush and beautiful outdoor space is available as well.

The event is BYOB (bring your own beverage).
