Taimane Gardner in SF

Saw Taimane fire up the 'ukulele on Thursday night at 111 Minna gallery in San Francisco. She opened for big wave surfer, Garrett McNamara (GMAC!), who did a slide show and Q&A session, all sponsored by Outside magazine (one of my favorite publications.) Free admission, food and beer were in abundance, but I would have paid dearly to go to this anyway.

Taimane played a 45 minute set and I was amazed to be three feet away. She regaled the audience with her trademark medleys, which aptly pair rock and roll and classical pieces together. She definitely has a unique and enthralling style. Great to be able to enjoy a whole set of her music after only getting to hear one song at last year's luau in February (see March 18, 2008 post).

Enjoy some of the video I shot and edited...
