The Transbay Creative Music Calendar is a comprehensive concert listing for non-commercial, adventurous new music in the San Francisco Bay Area. On almost any night, there is some kind of interesting music happening in the Bay Area, the trouble is finding out about it! Frustrated with little or no support from the local press and concert calendars, we have created this web site to provide a central listing for events covering wide range of modern music, including: experimental, improvised, noise, electronic, free-jazz, outrock, 21st century composition, and sonic art.
We also encourage promoters to use this site as a 'conflict catcher' by referring to the calendar before scheduling events and 'penciling in' their own potential events as far in advance as possible.
In addition to this web site, we publish a monthly printed edition that includes articles, reviews, and photos about local music and the people who create it. Each month, 1000 copies of the Transbay are distributed via regular 1st class mail and are hand delivered to most performance venues as well as many other locations.
The online calendar listings, submissions, and database is provided by John Lee and his bayimproviser.com.
