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...

Calvin Arsenia has built a reputation for turning the arts world on its head. While the harp has allowed this Kansas City native to become a man of the world (gaining followings in Paris, Edinburgh, & at the Outlyre festival in Austria), it’s his unique ability to craft a stimulating setting at his live shows that has all eyes fixed on this conspicuous musician & his breathtaking approach to harp music. His angelic, classically-trained voice soars over audiences, enchanting even the fussiest of fans, beckoning them to join him as he flirts between genres. But the music is just one part of his prodigious performances, for Calvin believes the art is in crafting the perfect moment. His music is best served live, with sensational performances & high fashion from the visually striking performer who stands at well over six feet tall. - https://www.calvinarsenia.com/

Nick Jaina is an author & musician born in Sacramento & currently residing in no particular place. He is finishing his first novel, Hitomi, if you would just give him a second. His first book, the memoir Get It While You Can, was a finalist for the 2016 Oregon Book Award. He has released several albums & co-founded a ballet company. He teaches writing workshops around the world. - http://nickjaina.com/

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!
