Brick and Mortar Music Hall Arrives Where Coda Jazz Supper Club Died

The late Coda Jazz Supper Club has been reborn.
  • The late Coda Jazz Supper Club has been reborn.

Remember Coda, the posh jazz supper club that occupied the seemingly cursed space at 1710 Mission (previous occupants: Levende Lounge, Butterfly, etc.) until the end of last year, when it closed due to financial difficulties?

Well, the space has been reborn. It's now called Brick and Mortar Music Hall, and shows begin there tonight.


​The venue's first show -- as far as we can tell -- is a free performance by Breaking Bread, featuring members of local funk bands Vinyl and Monophonics. Breaking Bread will play again for free tomorrow night. On Saturday, the soul outfit Rayband performs for the insanely reasonable price of $6 adv/$10 door. None of the shows on the calendar look too pricey.

We're still looking for what's changed in the switchover from Coda to Brick and Mortar -- one of our correspondents says the sign still said Coda on a recent walk-by -- but the main thing, so far, is that it appears Brick and Mortar won't be serving food. Coda owner Bruce Hanson had said that keeping a kitchen open (and serving rather fancy food from it) was one of the main difficulties of Coda open. Hopefully the lack of restaurant grub will give Brick and Mortar a fighting chance at life. Coda lasted barely more than a year.

We've got our feelers out for more info on Brick and Mortar, and we'll update you as soon as we can. In the meantime, who's curious to roll by tonight for a free show and check out S.F.'s newest live music venue?

  • 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.'"
