Shing02 dinner/concert, February 22, 2016
Just added a very late addition to my dinner/concert calendar for this coming Monday, February 22. Shing02 is a huge name in the music scene in Japan, an old friend of mine and i have appeared on several of his recordings. He plays for thousands in Japan and will perform for a small audience of 20 diner/listeners on Monday in a loft in West Oakland! It is hard to put him or his music in a box. He was born in Japan but mostly grew up in Tanzania and England and has lives in the bay area, NYC, LA and elsewhere. His music is influenced by hip hop, jazz, Japanese traditional music, electronic music and rock. Very unique and fascinating songwriter, composer and performer!
Menu will be:
shaved asparagus, white bean, cashew feta cheese, pine nut salad
cumin peppercorn crusted seitan, maple smoked tempeh, cashew herb cheese balls, yuzu beer mustard, Anadama bread. pickled red onions and capers
potato gnocchi baked with with basil pesto, almond ricotta and mushrooms. roasted brocillini.
our homemade waffle cones with our renowmed ice creams
tonights flavors will be:
orange cardamom chocolate ice cream (coconut based)
pistachio matcha with dried cherries (cashew based)
