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...

Kendra McKinley is a San Francisco Bay Area singer, songwriter & bandleader whose songs burst with color, wonder, sensuality & wit. Finger painting with the sounds of chamber pop, jazz, soul & psychedelia, McKinley draws from a deep well of empathy. Whether she’s performing solo with a guitar & a looping pedal, fronting a full funk band, or collaborating with artists both local & around the globe, McKinley’s confident, honeyed voice enacts a gravitational pull on all who hear it. -

Chelsea Coleman, an Oklahoma grown singing-songwriting powerhouse, creates sanctuaries out of songs, wherein her audience is moved, humbled, & exalted. A courageous & vulnerable storyteller, she invites you to endure open heart surgery, skillfully mending your heartache with strands of golden thread. Each listener leaves more integrally woven in to the tapestry of humanity. -

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 working 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!
