Kristina at Benefit for the Being of Mark Growden

12 Galaxies
2565 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA

Saturday, March 29 at 7:00pm

12 Galaxies will be packed to the rafters with an amazing selection of talent representing 10 plus years of the best musicians and entertainers from this area. Many of our performers have solo projects, new group projects, and have been a part of some of the most exciting and notorious bands, duos, performance experiments, and mayhem (often with Mark himself) that have shaped this whole scene for years.

Everyone’s playing short sets so make sure you don’t miss out by coming late...and yes, Mark will be playing here and there throughout the night. There will also be an all-star, old school, improvised set with members from nearly all of Mark’s former bands, including Electric Pinata. The list of San Francisco talent that will be gracing the stage is too long to list, but yes, Kristina will be among them doing her thang.

Ticket Price: $10-$25 Sliding Scale
