Kacey Johansing's 49 Hours
an Francisco musician Kacey Johansing (ex-member of bay area band Geographer) creates songs with wandering melodies, lush harmonies and moody aural landscapes. Weaving together elements of folk, jazz, pop and classical music, it sounds as if she spent years studying in old smoky theaters with icons Leonard Bernstein and Joni Mitchell directing the show, and The Beach Boys in the orchestra pit. A soulful, honeyed voice and lilting vibrato land her the leading role. Johansing’s forthcoming release and decidely darker sophomore LP, Grand Ghosts, grapples with loss, paying homage to loved ones who passed during the making of the record. It's out February 26th, 2013.
Catch the Kacey Johansing at the Great American Music Hall March 2.

El Buen Sabor is authentic Mexican food in the heart of the Mission. It's so authentic, it doesn't even have a website. This taqueria is none for their countless vegetarian and vegan options. It's my favorite mission burrito spot.
