The Switchboard Music Festival, an 8-hour mixed genre marathon, has reached its fifth year, and will again showcase a mostly-local lineup of creative musicians. Finding its groove zone in "the gap between art and popular music," this year's showcase features chamber choir Volti (OM 12) and Oakland's theatrical "songtellers" Faun Fables. Eleven other acts round out the day: local performers Jeff Anderle, Beep, Cornelius Boots, Dan Cantrell, Grains, Danny Holt, the Hurd Ensemble, Dominique Leone, The Living Earth Show, Mercury Falls, Nonsemble 6, Ramon & Jessica, and the San Francisco Conservatory Guitar Ensemble, plus music composed by works by Hauschka, Ryan Brown, Caleb Burhans, Anna Clyne, Robin Estrada, Jonathan Russell, and more.
