Posted on by Mission Community Market in Blog, Live Music | Leave a comment
This Thursday we’re celebrating Dia De Los Muertos at MCM with an action-packed schedule of family-friendly fun! At 4:30 pm the kids from Edison Academy will perform the Thriller Dance. Starting at 5:00 pm, DJ Matt Haze will play music in anticipation of this Saturday’s Kiddo Disco show at Bollyhood (details below). Also at 5:00 pm, we’ll learn how to make Pumpkins Florentine and a Fall Flower Salad thanks to a cooking demo fro Violeta and Raul of Urban Sprouts. At 5:30pm  Moving Beyond Productions, and the Marsh Youth Theater Dance program will present a Dia de los Muertos dance.
What is Kiddo Disco, you ask? Well, The Great Pumpkin, Jack Skellington, and Dora the Zombie Explorer will all be there, getting their ghoulish groove on! Kiddo Disco is a daytime family dance party, back from the undead to celebrate Halloween with you and your creepy little creatures! There will be face painting, stroller parking, a diaper changing area and quiet reading area, as well as healthy and delicious snacks and a bar for the ghastly grownups. Megan (g)hosts and DJ Matt spins a weird and wacky mix of celebratory tunes. The only missing ingredient in the magic potion is you!

Music from Citizen’s Jazz & Jascha

This week we’re excited to welcome two brand new acts to MCM!

At 4:00, Citizen’s Jazz will treat us to some lively jazz tunes. Citizen’s Jazz is a collective of some of the most talented and passionate jazz musicians in the Bay Area. Led by bassist Caroline Chung (pictured), the concept was devised from and inspired by the creativity of the many wonderful musicians she has met and played with. Each combo brings in a different flavor to the collective while maintaining the integrity of be bop, swing & blues from the good ol’ days!

At 6:30, Jascha (ya-sha) will wow us with a set of Brazilian pop songs. Jascha is a songwriter and science journalist in San Francisco. His debut album A Cure for Sleep was praised for being a collection of “deceptively simple, deeply weird pop songs” that earned comparisons to Sufjan Stevens and Leonard Cohen. Jascha’s second album, The Future Limited, was released in March 2012. One of his music videos went viral after appearing on The Atlantic and Boing Boing.

We are excited to welcome both Citizen’s Jazz and Jascha to MCM this week. All the fun starts this Thursday at 4:00 pm!
