Mark Growden Concert and Party at Cowell Theater To Celebrate Release of Saint Judas Album

Mark Growden's Saint Judas CD release party

San Francisco musician Mark Growden is having a blockbuster concert event this Friday, November 13th at Fort Mason’s Cowell Theater to celebrate then release of his new album “Saint Judas”.

Tickets are on sale now for Friday’s show, and it is likely to sell out. Here’s a quote from a message that Mark sent to his mailing list last week:

This is the most important show of my career to date and I hope you can make it. It’s going to be special as it will feature my full sextet plus a beautiful set design by Isabella De Meulenaere and light design by Stephen Clifford.

Soon I will be posting some brand new footage of Mark performing a song off the new album and an interview that I conducted with him about the show, the new CD, and much more.

In the meantime, here’s a sample of Mark’s talent and musical inventiveness. A year ago, Doctor Popular filmed Mark playing bicycle handlebars as a wind instrument and talked to him about it–enjoy!


Actor, nerd, poet, producer, writer mikl-em made his name short so you wouldn't have to. In addition to his blog you can find his writing in "Hi Fructose" magazine and witness him almost life-sized in various plays at The Dark Room Theater in SF's Mission district.

He tends to write about theater, humor, San Francisco culture and history, and stuff that's just plain weird. He thanks Scott for sharing the keys to the Laughing Squid virtual HQ and promises to uphold whatever it is that the mirthful cephalopod would prefer to be uplifted.
