SF Symphony's American Mavericks festival returns with visionary rareties -- and a timely dose of oddball wonder
Will it have the same cultural impact? Here we are back in an overconfident tech bubble — and once again our total cultural output seems a bit, well, blah. An irony of the social media onslaught is that all this personal expression seems to be quashing true individuality. So we're having a materialist and conformist moment. A good dose of musical eccentricity from old school visionaries/crazies who turned their backs on the rat race might just do us a world of good. Here's to more "Eeeps!" among the bleeps.
AMERCAN MAVERICKS FESTIVAL
