We would love to have you all join us in the flesh this Sunday at Viracocha in San Francisco. But if you can’t make it, you can still catch the show streaming live online, and it will be a show to remember! With the soulful Viola Booth opening the night and special guest Suzanne Holland taking the stage second, as well as joining the choir later for The Window, we expect this end of the year performance to bring us all to tears at one point or another. This event is a fund raiser for Viracocha as they work towards improving their amazing event space.

With the help of our friends at the entire show will be available for live streaming on a Pay-What-You-Will basis (suggested $10 donation). This will be a one-time viewing opportunity, the show will not be re-aired. It’s really easy to sign in and start streaming straight away. All proceeds go towards the Viracocha fund raiser. The stream starts at 8pm, so grab some friends, gather round the fire (your computer), and enjoy the show!
