Clean Heat & The Vivants: My Country Valentine


Clean Heat is the duo of Evie Ladin & Lila Goehring, deep denizens of a far-reaching old time country community of late night jams, might as well be sisters-harmonies, and sad, old songs. Both grew up surrounded by luminaries in traditional music, and carry that into the hearts of audiences. Acoustic Americana quartet, The Vivants, find their musical faith in the inspiring traditions of Southern music and showmanship, blending western swing, old-time country and bluegrass with 3-part vocal harmonies.

We’re a Tween now!

It’s been a long, arduous haul to get where we are, but as they said in this new SF Chronicle Datebook article…we are a scrappy bunch and are so happy we made it. We can’t wait for the next 12 years of adventures.

We would not be here without YOU.

I hope you’ll celebrate with us by coming to one of our wonderful, invigorating, heart warming, surreal, magical, funny, and sonically delightful shows during this February Anniversary month.

Read about The Lost Church

in the San Francisco Chronicle

The Lost Church in the San Francisco Chronicle


The Lost Church has found a new home in North Beach, and all it took for the nonprofit performance space to reach its adolescence was a minor miracle.

Launched in the Mission District living room of Brett and Elizabeth Cline in 2011 when they decided to stop touring with their groove-rock duo Juanita and the Rabbit, the Lost Church became an indispensable outlet for a wide array of local artists while flying largely under the radar of city regulators at the San Francisco Entertainment Commission.

But long before the advent of COVID-19 and the governor’s March 2020 shelter-in-place order, the Clines knew they had to find a new space for hosting shows that was Americans with Disabilities Act compliant. Emergency funding for businesses and venues shuttered by the pandemic provided a lifeline for the scrappy nonprofit DIY theater, yet after nine months of fruitless searching, they’d burned through most of a Hardly Strictly Bluegrass grant intended to help them find a new home.

“I wanted to stay in the Mission close to BART, but there was no place small enough,” Brett Cline told The Chronicle. Opening a 99-seat theater, he said, entails much of the same cost and bureaucratic hoop-jumping required to create a larger venue, but with a significantly smaller potential revenue stream.

“The math is daunting,” he added. “I started looking in the Financial District and came close, but landlords only wanted to give a five-year lease. I’m like, ‘Aren’t you people desperate for a tenant?’ ”
