Fillmore West was a historic rock and roll music venue in San Francisco, California which became famous under the direction of concert promoter Bill Graham from 1968-1971. Named after Graham's original "Fillmore" location at the intersection of Fillmore Street and Geary Boulevard, it stood at the southwest corner of Market Street and South Van Ness Avenue. There is now a Honda automobile dealership at that location.HistoryThe Carousel Ballroom, was originally a big band dance palace. Later, Fillmore West booked primarily African American performers as part of the Chitlin Circuit, prior to 1967. Blues legend B.B. King played before his first primarily white audience there in February 1967, with Bill Graham promoting.The Carousel Ballroom was for a few months in 1968 operated by a collective formed by the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Big Brother and the Holding Company, as a social/musical "laboratory experiment". The "six-month run may well have corresponded with the height of the whole '60s Haight-Ashbury/San Francisco thing." Bill Graham then took it over.
Fillmore West foi uma histórica casa de shows em São Francisco, Califórnia, fundada pelo empresário de rock Bill Graham. Seu nome é advindo do Fillmore original, que funcionava nas esquinas da Fillmore Street e Geary Boulevard.Em razão da deterioração urbana da vizinhança e da capacidade exígua do Fillmore original, Graham decidiu mudar sua casa de shows para o local antes conhecido como The Carousel Ballroom e El Patio, nas esquinas da Market Street e South Van Ness Avenue. Renomeou o empreendimento para Fillmore West em contraste a seu Fillmore East, então em funcionamento em Nova York.No começo da década de 1970, Graham decidiu afastar-se da indústria musical, fechando a casa em 4 de julho de 1971 com uma leitura de poesia por Allen Ginsberg e concertos das bandas Santana, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Grateful Dead e Quicksilver Messenger Service. O documentário Fillmore, retratando os últimos concertos, e um LP triplo, Fillmore: The Last Days, foram lançados em 1972.
San Francisco City Hall is the seat of government for the City and County of San Francisco, California. Re-opened in 1915 in its open space area in the city's Civic Center, it is a Beaux-Arts monument to the City Beautiful movement that epitomized the high-minded American Renaissance of the 1880s to 1917. The structure's dome is taller than that of the United States Capitol by 42 feet. The present building replaced an earlier City Hall that was destroyed during the 1906 earthquake, which was two blocks from the present one. It was bounded by Larkin Street, McAllister Street, and City Hall Avenue (a street, now built over, which ran from the corner of Grove and Larkin to the corner of McAllister and Leavenworth), largely where the current Public Library and U.N. Plaza stand today.The principal architect was Arthur Brown, Jr., of Bakewell & Brown, whose attention to the finishing details extended to the doorknobs and the typeface to be used in signage. Brown's blueprints of the building are preserved at the Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley. Brown also designed the San Francisco War Memorial Opera House, Veterans Building, Temple Emanuel, Coit Tower and the Federal office building at 50 United Nations Plaza.
The SHN Orpheum Theatre is a performance venue located at 1192 Market at Hyde Street in the Civic Center district of San Francisco, California.

Brought to you by the producers of San Francisco’s long running (and always sold out) Absolute Magic, Magic at the Rex is an evening of mystery, wonderment and laughs. In an intimate nightclub setting at the classic Hotel Rex, you will be up close and personal with every flick of the wrist and wave of a hand of Adam Sachs and Sebastian Boswell III.
Sebastian Boswell III is a most remarkable man who does fantastic things. As Mr. Boswell would modestly admit ,words cannot do justice to his performance of unusual feats he has learned in his travels over the world; suffice to say that you will be riveted.
Close-up Magician Adam Sachs is as nimble with his fingers as he is with his wit. Writing in the New York Times, William Safire described Adam as a "wise guy, wiseacre." Adam is sophisticated and refined, but he sheds all that before the shows begin.
Magic at the Rex will occasionally include a guest magician.
But don't take it from us, here's how the San Francisco Chronicle described the earlier show, Absolute Magic:
Forget the pyrotechnics, fog machines and cheesy background music - this isn't Caesars Palace. Absolute Magic focuses on the interactive and communal aspects of a magic show rather than the spectacle. Featured are local magicians RJ Owens - whose avuncular charm and offbeat brand of comedy magic will have you somewhere between smirking and outright chortling (depending on your sheepishness) - and Adam Sachs, with his mystifying sleight of hand, which may require reminders to close your mouth.
Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door, and there is a two drink minimum.
Parking is available at nearby public parking garages including the Sutter/Stockton Garage. Please note that seating will begin at 7:30 PM. You may also meet and relax in the classic bar next to the salon for pre-show drinks.
Did we mention that Adam and Sebastian sometimes wander to the Rex’s bar after the show and mingle over drinks for discussion and more close up performances for the guests . In other words, you may ask them questions they won’t answer, like “how did he do that?” and questions they will answer, like “why do you do that?”

"Painted ladies" is a term in American architecture used for Victorian and Edwardian houses and buildings painted in three or more colors that embellish or enhance their architectural details. The term was first used for San Francisco Victorian houses by writers Elizabeth Pomada and Michael Larsen in their 1978 book Painted Ladies - San Francisco's Resplendent Victorians.Since then the term has also been used to describe groups of colorful Victorian houses in other American cities, such as the Charles Village neighborhood in Baltimore, Lafayette Square in St. Louis, the greater San Francisco and New Orleans areas, Columbia-Tusculum in Cincinnati, the Old West End in Toledo, Ohio, and the city of Cape May, New Jersey.San Francisco's painted ladiesAbout 48,000 houses in the Victorian and Edwardian styles were built in San Francisco between 1849 and 1915 (with the change from Victorian to Edwardian occurring on the death of Queen Victoria in 1901), and many were painted in bright colors. As one newspaper critic noted in 1885, "...red, yellow, chocolate, orange, everything that is loud is in fashion...if the upper stories are not of red or blue... they are painted up into uncouth panels of yellow and brown..." While many of the mansions of Nob Hill were destroyed by the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, thousands of the mass-produced, more modest houses survived in the western and southern neighborhoods of the city.
