On April 3rd, the SF Symphony kicked off Ball season in only-in-San Francisco style with a cocktail party at AT&T Park’s Club Level Lounge.
We hope you scored tickets to one of this legendary folk artists three SF shows. Paul Simon, aka half of the Simon and Garfunkel duo, is performing back-to-back shows, promising material from his newest album So Beautiful or So What as well as songs he's seldom played live.
When: Mon. 4/25, Tues. 4/26, Wed. 4/27
Where: Davies Symphony Hall, 301 Van Ness Ave.; The Fox Theater, 1807 Telegraph Ave.; The Fillmore, 1805 Geary Blvd.
Inspired by his father Henry, who turned to directing and producing after his run as Fonzie ended in 1984, Max Winkler spent his childhood with a camera in hand, constantly filming home movies and, in the process, honing the directorial skills he puts to appreciable use in his feature debut, Ceremony, opening Friday at the Lumiere.
Did Winkler, 27, hope to follow in the Fonz’s footsteps? Not exactly. As a preteen, he entertained thoughts of acting, even making a brief appearance in Henry’s 1993 family comedy Cop and a Half. Yet Max soon discovered his comfort zone behind the camera, where, as he puts it, he felt more focused, more in control.
Paul Simon's on the road again with his first new record in five years, and he's just added a few dates to his spring tour (his shows at Davies and The Fox are already sold-out). You may know him best as half of the Simon and Garfunkel duo, but don't expect a show of "Mrs. Robinson," "Cecilia," and "Scarborough Fair." For this tour, the legendary folk artist plans to play from the forthcoming So Beautiful or So What (out April 12) as well as songs that he's seldom performed live.
