Everything in Pen Sings of (and around) San Francisco

This hour-long program for adults features acoustic artist Everything in Pen (Elizabeth Hubbard), and her songs of San Francisco.  Combining the pop sensibility of Big Star and the off-beat narrative observations of Jonathan Richman, Everything in Pen’s songs cover many topics---a breakup at the Great American Music Hall, dog watching in Golden Gate Park, having an epiphany at the SFPL main branch, and the ache of waiting for the next Dave Eggers book to arrive. She sings the things you won’t say aloud, of the foolishness, the hopefulness and the almost unbearable humanness of us all.   This show will include a brief explanation about each song’s origin and connection to San Francisco and upon request, may also include time at the end to answer questions about songwriting.
