It's open! The SFJAZZ Center, the West Coast's first facility dedicated to jazz performance and education, opened its doors on Monday, and with only a few hiccups, most of which are now resolved.

So it's time to party. And even if you're not the gala-hopping VIP-type, you can witness performances by jazz greats like McCoy Tyner and Chick Corea, as well as younger artists like Esperanza Spalding and the SFJAZZ Collective, as they happen this evening.

The opening concert will be streamed live on local stations KCSM 91.1 FM and KALW 91.7 FM. Meanwhile, NPR will host a video stream of the concert, which will be emceed by Bill Cosby, right here.

The concert and streams begin at 8 p.m. tonight -- so give a listen if you want to hear history happening right before your ears. And meanwhile, read our feature on the opening of the SFJAZZ Center.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
