Music by Latin Jazz legend Jerry Gonzalez (Fort Apache Band) with an All-Star Band headed by Greg Landau.
Hosted by Barrio Producers Lou Dematteis, Dante Betteo, and Production Designer Rene Yañez. Join the production team for an evening of Fundraising, Noir costumes and the best of SF edgy entertainment at Brava Theater in SF's Mission District to raise funds for the production completion of "The Other Barrio."
"The Other Barrio" (based on the short story by SF Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguia) tells the story of San Francisco on edge. A Latino investigator (Richard Montoya), sifting through the suspicious circumstances of a fatal fire in a residential hotel in the Mission, finds himself face to face with corruption at City Hall and a beautiful flame (Veronica Valencia) from his past. This SF Noir at its best, a tale of greed, murder, corruption and justice. Shot on location in San Francisco.
