But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Saturday, February 13 – 7:30 pm
live streamed jazz from the bookshop!
The Kai Lyons Trio

Catch jazz guitarist Kai Lyons with Giulio Xavier Cetto on bass and Genius Wesley on drums.

Three musicians, young and younger still, who have been setting jazz audiences buzzing for the past several years.

If you haven’t heard any one of them yet, you’ll want to tune in. If you already know their work, then you know you’ll want to tune in.

Live at 7:30 on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. Help us pay the band by sending your contribution by Paypal ([email protected]), Venmo app (@birdandbeckett) or Cash app ($BirdBeckett). Or email us with your pledge and drop a check or cash by the bookshop anytime!

Jazz thrives in San Francisco, beautiful and unstoppable!
