PLAYING IN FOG RETIRED IN
About Playing in Fog
PiF was a site dedicated to live indie shows
happening primarily in San Francisco. What's listed on the calendar are
mainly recommendations, and by no means is it comprehensive to what's
happening. I don't always list every band that's on the bill either, so
please visit the Links
section for other sources for shows and complete line-ups. There's typically
something good every night of the week! Well almost ;-)
1. PiF only reviews live shows - sorry, no cd
2. We cannot set up shows for you. We can point you in the direction
of where to start, but that's about it.
Please understand that we get a lot of requests for help and simply can't
help everyone who asks.
3. If you'd like play a PIF Presents show, please send in a CD or demo. If we
absolutely love it, I'll have you play a show at some point. I do receive
quite a few CDs to listen to, so please don't be discourage and just have a
4. What is list on the calendar are shows we'd go to, so therefore we
recommend them. We generally don't list bands we don't know anything about.
5. We are not a label, nor is PiF a business or
I hope you find what we have here a useful resource and visit often.
If you'd like us to listen to your band and maybe have us come check you out,
please email us and tell us about yourself. We're always looking for new
bands to listen to. Our mailing address is: Playing in Fog 625 Ashbury St #7,
SF CA 94117

A Bit of History
PiF began in late 2000 as a online journal of sorts
for two SF chicks known as Squid and Daz (aka Kate Izquierdo & Debra Zeller). Squid would write the
reviews and Daz would share her photographs. Today,
PiF has grown into something we both never
imagined, and as time goes on our lives have changed and PiF's
meaning has also changed. It's not so much about us anymore, but more about
the live music scene in San Francisco. Squid has ventured off to other endeavors,
and while she still attends shows and contributes to the site, she's cut back
these days, which means not as many great reviews from her as there use to
be. We now have Jake Thomas writing
reviews, and boy... there is no stopping this guy, he's a show going review
machine! We also have guests reviewers from time to time. If you'd like to
contribute, please send us an example of your writing.
A special thanks for their support and encouragement goes out to:
