One of my favorite SF artists, musician/composer/songwriter Peter Whitehead is doing something really cool as part of the San Francisco International Arts Festival which wraps up this weekend, a mini music marathon! For eight hours, Peter will hold down Gallery 308, now filled with his instruments, and improvise with invited collaborators all afternoon and early evening.
