Silicon Valley Rocks!

Last night I attended the 1st Annual Silicon Valley Rocks at The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. Billed as a show of “tech professionals by day, garage band by night…” I wasn’t sure what to expect, although the promise of geeks and music wrapped up into one event certainly sounded good to me. 

I wasn’t disappointed.  For a first time show I think it turned out well. I met some interesting people (though somehow I didn’t run into anybody that was tweeting it) and was able to talk geek.  The music was surprsingly good for “garage band” talent.  I think my favorite of the night was the Punjabi-Hip Hop Jazz Funk Experience of blacKMahal.  I streamed the end of their set on Qik, but it’s kind of hard to hear since I was just a few feet from the stage and pretty much right in front of the speakers.  Check out the diversity of this group though…they were excellent and a crowd favorite.

    I was there too and fully agree that the best band of the evening was Black Mahal – they totally rocked it. I think they might have a MySpace page where you can download some of their songs…
