I’m looking forward to hopefully seeing Marco Eneidi, who’s back in town from Vienna for one show, Feb. 26, at the Luggage Store Gallery.  UPDATE: More info here.

Also setting up plans to host Le Quan Ninh and Michel Doneda next week — two musicians from France who will be in town to perform some modern classical stuff in the sfSound Microfestival (details at sfsound.org.)
