[Un]Observed Launch Party

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Video may have killed the radio star, but the [Un]Observed is prying the nails out of the coffin with one amazing sound program at a time. Collaborating with the Guardian UK and gleaning its content from many renowned sources (i.e. the leading journalists, producers and audiophiles from around the world), the new online radio magazine showcases the best aural media out there.

Bringing the radio back.

The [Un]Observed launch party slash listening event takes place this Thursday, March 24 at Ohio Studio in the Mission. With snacks and refreshments provided by some of San Francisco’s favorite local spots (Anchor Brewing, Arizmendi, Bi-Rite), the [Un]Observed folks clearly know how to catch our eyes. And our mouths. And our ears.

This listening event is “the first in a series of offline events that will act as companions to the [Un]Observedʼs online community. The launch will feature new work from the director of BBC 4, Tony Phillips, as well as pieces by the Guardianʼs senior audio editor and producer of the Sony Awards-winning Hackney Podcast, Francesca Panetta, and the Priz dʼItalia-winning independent producer Alan Hall. The [Un]Observed listening events will eventually be held in cities around the country.” Be there!

The [Un]Observed Launch Party & Listening Event
Thursday, March 24, 6:30-9:30pm

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe's youth was split between California and Kauai, frolicking on a macadamia nut farm in the tropics and landing finally in the Bay Area. Raised by super-Jew hippies, and the youngest of three sisters, Chloe learned early the virtues of thrift, economy, and green living. To the chagrin of her parents (who hoped, of course, for a Jewish doctor or lawyer), Chloe has put her degree from UC Berkeley to great use by becoming a folk singer. As "Chloe Makes Music" she plays shows throughout SF and beyond, donning vintage frocks, selling handmade merch, and pinching pennies as she sings for her supper. Calling Berkeley home for the last six years, you can think of Chloe as the website's East Bay Correspondent, opening your eyes to the hippie-filled, tree-hugging, organic-loving, vegan-eating, but way-overlooked and awesome assets of Berkeley, Oakland, and beyond.
