Let's hope the weather changes in time for the appearance of Los Tigres Del Norte who come to Carnaval SF on Saturday May 25 on the 20th st. Stage. The headliner is usually on Sunday but for this special occasion they will appear on Saturday so mark your calendars!
Los Tigers del Norte are on a major worldwide scale as performers and will make this a historical event with their appearance at Carnaval. The group will also be the subject of a major motion picture about them and their humble beginnings which is currently in the works.

LRI is pleased to introduce our audience to Matt Jaffe, a young and upcoming singer/songwriter from San Francisco. I caught Matt for the first time performing solo at a coffee shop and his style and songwriting immediately caught my attention. Cutting his teeth on open mics around the Bay Area, Matt started pursuing music more seriously when JERRY HARRISON of Talking Heads offered to produce his first record. Since then, Matt has churned out more songs than he can remember the words to, oversaturated the market with gigs opening for folks like Mavis Staples, Wilco, Jackie Greene and Blues Traveler, and co-written with the likes of Chuck Prophet and Tom Higenson of the Plain White T's. With his band, Matt has played stages across the country, including The Fillmore, The Troubadour, and Irving Plaza, and has just released his third album of original material, "The Spirit Catches You", another installment in his campaign to bring the Guitar Gospel back to the masses. Please be sure to catch Matt here with his group or anywhere you see his name. You won't soon forget him! (www.mattjaffemusic.com).
