At a time when gentrification has already driven thousands of artists and musicians and their audiences out of the Bay Area, it is ever more urgent for Outsound Presents to continue fulfilling its mission by supporting, showcasing, and honoring those beyond categorization, audacious souls who stubbornly remain. The 18th Annual Outsound New Music Summit is a concentrated celebration of the music and its listeners, still independent and volunteer-run in a time of corporate takeover of the City’s music scene and a swiftly homogenizing City culture. The Summit boasts nearly two decades of curatorial experience but the sounds of its artists are still new, challenging, defiant, and uncompromising.

Cost: $18 gen, $15 sen, $12 stu
