Groove into every first Wednesday with LCA Live’s signature series, Jazz and Tacos. Experience jazz performed by some of the best in the local SF Bay Area Jazz scene, alongside delicious tacos provided by Taqueria Girasol – all for free for the SF State Community! Free for students, staff, and faculty. 

The "amoeba-like" SLUGish Ensemble returns to the Jazz & Tacos stage after a monumental kick-off performance last season to celebrate the release of their new album! 

Celebrate SLUGish Ensemble's new album, In Solitude, with us. In Solitude will be release on September 15th!

Slow & Steady Records announces the release of SLUGish Ensemble’s third recording In Solitude. Led by composer and multi-reedist Steven Lugerner, In Solitude brings the chemistry of the band’s 2022 album, Live At Sam First, under the hood of Oakland’s venerable 25th Street Recording studio, extending the signature SLUGish minimalistic math-jazz to Lugerner’s inspired original compositions. The ensemble again features an enviable cast of emerging young players on the West Coast: keyboardists Javier Santiago and Steve Blum, guitarist Justin Rock, bassist Giulio Xavier Cetto, and drummer Michael Mitchell.

What comes out on the other side is a cathartic body of music that’ll have jazz heads and indie-rockers alike bobbing their heads, always guessing what comes next. In Solitude is a roadmap – of SLUGish Ensemble’s range and slow and steady growth, of an all-too-relatable pandemic experience, and one of San Francisco’s treasured, off-the-beaten path neighborhoods.

RSVP now to secure your seat and catch SLUGish Ensemble's boundary-blurring original compositions and arrangements that seamlessly blend pop, indie rock, jazz improvisations, and minimalism. To top off the perfect outing - you'll enjoy mouth-watering tacos from Taqueria Girasol.
