Losing your job can be a blessing because it frees you up to do stuff you always wanted, e.g., writing your book, learning to cook, or living under a hammock in Golden Gate Park. Or better, launching a rad online local music portal called Epicsauce.
From an SF dude who bounced back gracefully from getting laid off by...going to shows every night, 'Sauce began simply as a concert itinerary for his gainfully employed friends, but then said friends were all "this should be your job", and a super accessible/expertly curated local hub for all things music was born fully formed, unlike those worthless babies. Sauce's rock/electronic/hip hop, etc, event listings are pulled from all over (The List, newspapers, obscure blogs...), and can run from a hot Noise Pop act, to a cutty DJ party in an Oakland warehouse, to Tim and Eric's Pusswhip Banggang at Mezzanine, a show you managed to miss 'cause you were...a normal human being. Then, calendar info's editorialized/de-mystified on 'Sauce's blog, where you'll find crisp breakdowns of each upcoming performer's musical stylings/influences, embedded mp3s, and interviews with both luminaries like Deerhoof and lesser-known talent like a Jersey-based one-man-show Memory Tapes, also what you buried in that time capsule alongside your John Mellencamp/Meshell Ndegeocello cassingle.
Want more 'Sauce? Good, because the site's proprietor's producing his own semi-weekly shows at Milk, including a no-cover-having humdinger this Thursday with $2 PBRs and local talent like Beehive Spirit, Red Blue Yellow, Butterfly Bones, and Man/Miracle, also the name of your just-finished masterpiece Grilling in the GGP, just out in pamphlet.
