Weekend Watcher: Hornucopia Festival Continues . . . Gaucho at Amnesia

I kept away from the TC50 and DEMO conferences this past week and snuck into some of the Hornucopia Festival shows. There is a Gypsy-Django-Tango sound in San Francisco these days. It's a trend you can find elsewhere too but there seems to a very San Francisco brand of it that spans dozens of groups, it's really exciting.

Here is a taste of that music with Gaucho, who played on Wednesday night at Amnesia. They are a local band and they play a lot of local venues and feature some fantastic musicians such as the legendary Ralph Carney (they are all legendary). I've got an interview coming very soon. Please check them out and the rest of the Hornucopia Festival:
