You're Going to Die offers another mortally conscious entertainment experience, proudly presenting great artists as they deserve to be presented: in the concert context of acknowledging their musical mortal magic. This show is a part of an ongoing monthly concert series, the 3rd Thursday of every month, held in the container of our city's beautifully historic San Francisco Columbarium & Funeral Home...

The Feelings Parade is the alchemy that happens when songwriters Scott Ferreter & Morgan Bolender come together to bare their souls through song & story. Their live shows--like their songs--are known for being simultaneously gritty & compassionate, & their sound exists somewhere between the nostalgic, harmony-rich acoustic singer-songwriter styles of the 60’s & a harder-hitting, electric barrage of texture & groove. Their live show is a deeply human experience--often filled with both tears of sorrow and tears of laughter, and they have come to be known for their vulnerable presence and storytelling as much as their music. -

Josiah Johnson is best known for being a founding member of The Head & the Heart. He took a break from that work a few years ago to learn how to live more wholly integrated & to work with & through problems with addictions. His expanding solo creations are transcendent, healing folk songs. Deep & soulful ballads that paint the imagination with rich & emotional landscapes of love, loss & transformation. Josiah's solo performances highlight a stripped down, emotive, lyrics-and-voice-first kind of song craft, inimitable in its sincerity & beauty, with the powerful joy of singing together. -

VENUE: Located off the beaten path, at the end of a residential cul-de-sac in the Richmond District, the copper-domed, Neo-Classical columbarium is a hidden gem & an architectural wonder. The structure features a large rotunda, mosaic tile floors, ornate stained-glass windows & a domed skylight. A colossal 45-foot atrium is surrounded by intricate balconies, with each of the 4 floors providing a glimpse into San Francisco’s history. Big thanks to Brian Kestenblatt & the staff of San Francisco Columbarium & Funeral Home for wokring so wonderfully to make special events like this happen!

PARKING: There is a parking lot, but space is limited. Public transportation is recommended.

COMFORT: The space was built in the late 1800s, so there is no heat, but a limited number of blankets will be available for use. Dress warmly!
