Enjoy a show of vintage blues, rock and roll and boogie woogie, delivered by San Francisco's very own Luxomatics!

This is the Luxomatics' debut appearance at the fabulous Speisekammer restaurant and music venue! The food is delicious, the german beer selection large, and the outdoor patio can't be beat for a summer dinner within earshot of the band. Of course, tables inside in the show room are the most excellent way to enjoy the show.
