June has almost begun, and with it comes a season of free concerts and outdoor movie screenings. On Tuesday, June 9th, Hayes Valley will see a convergence of both those activities with a neighborhood block party hosted by SFJAZZ and Proxy.
Back in December, Proxy won approval for a "limited live performance permit" from the Entertainment Commission, which means that movie screenings and outdoor music performances are allowed in Proxy's multi-use space at Hayes and Octavia.
Tuesday's event, which will run from 5pm to 9pm, kicks off the 33rd Annual San Francisco Jazz Festival and also marks the launch of a Kickstarter campaign designed to raise money to complete the walk-in movie theater planned for the space, with a Fall Film Festival in the offing. (Check back for more details on that when the Kickstarter launches on June 9th.)
