The films start at 8PM sharp. At 9PM DJ Paul will be spinning, soul,

food and best of all there is no admission charge.

We will raise money with a $5 raffle for a Las Olas Surfboard (a

Long Night's Moon: A Songbird Festival Presentation at El Valenciano.

1153 Valencia St.

Please join us for a very special gathering of east and west bay talents! Each act on this bill is not only a phenomenal performer but also a totally unique singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist approaching her music in a creative way -- be it on banjo, accordion, fiddle, or ukulele.

***Uni and her Ukelele***

Uni, the neo-vintage pop chanteuse/raconteur gathered up kickpants, a rockhawk and magical ruby slippers for the first time in 2004 and her 20’s punk movement has been gathering strength ever since. Her original and sincere take on the Ukelele coupled with her sweetly stirring and sometimes-haunting refrains unite to conjure the spectrum of catharsis.

***Dina Maccabee Band***

What do Wilco, Donovan, and Duncan Sheik have in common? Why, they've all shared a stage with Dina Maccabee of course. Dina has performed with countless Bay Area bands on fiddle and vocals, and now it's time to drop the curtain on her very own set of sad songs for rocking out.
with Roger Riedelbauer, guitar, Eric Perney, bass, and Eric Kuhn, drums

***Whiskey & Women***

Featuring members of Culann's Hounds and The Whoreshoes, the girls of Whiskey and Women dish up a tasty mix of old-timey, Cajun, and Irish music. Spawned from late nights of Jameson-influenced tunes and singalongs, as well as playing music on the streets of San Francisco and Edinburgh, Renee de la Prade and Joan Wilson Rueter create a delicious blend of fiddle, accordion, boot stompin' and hollerin' as Whiskey and Women.

***Paper Crocodiles***

"We're an old-timey, origami songwriting & noisemaking collaboration, a paper lagoon bubbling over with folk, rock, bluegrass, country, and americana." or to listen,
