Heart, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Cheap Trick

Heart, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Cheap Trick
Event on 2016-09-22 18:30:00
Two of rock's most iconic bands, Heart and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts will hit the road together this summer, and they're making a stop at the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre on Thursday, September 22nd!

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Ann and Nancy Wilson first showed the world that women can rock when their band, Heart, stormed the charts in the ‘70’s with hits like “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” “Barracuda,” “Straight On,” and so many more. Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the ‘80’s and ‘90’s with huge hits like “These Dreams,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” “If Looks Could Kill,” “Never,” and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters’ enormous talents as musicians, singers and songwriters. Along the way, music by Ann and Nancy Wilson and their band Heart sold more than 35 million albums, sold out arenas worldwide, and found their way into the soundtrack of American life through radio, motion pictures, television, and associations with branded sponsors. Powerful and exciting on stage, Heart performs their amazing show to many hundreds of thousands of fans annually.

Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator, and a visionary. As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, she's had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics "Bad Reputation," "I Love Rock 'N' Roll," "I Hate Myself For Loving You," and "Crimson and Clover." She sits at the head of her own independent label, Blackheart Records. Jett has acted in movies and television, including 1987's “Light Of Day,” and in a Tony-nominated Broadway musical, “The Rocky Horror Show.” She has appeared on such acclaimed television shows as ”Oprah” (the last season) and ‘Law and Order.” Jett and the Blackhearts released their latest record, “Unvarnished,” last year and continue touring the globe to throngs of adoring fans. “Unvarnished” debuted in the Top 50 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Cheap Trick had perfected an extremely individual yet classic rock and roll band sound by the time it released its first album in 1977. It has never changed it much. It didn’t need to. Cheap Trick’s records and concerts display a singular musical consistency over almost 40 years. Remaining interesting, sometimes hilarious, in that way is also pretty much unparalleled – and indispensable to understanding them. Cheap Trick is led by Rick Nielsen’s classic and perpetually fresh guitar and the sweet power of Robin Zander’s vocals. The group’s original lineup with Tom Petersson on bass and the amazing Bun E. Carlos as the powerhouse drummer influenced pretty much every other hard rockin’ band that came afterwards. They somehow bridge the gap between the fierce clowning of early punk and the accidental-on-purpose humor of metal, without ever sounding a bit like either. Their first five albums – Cheap Trick, In Color, Heaven Tonight, Dream Police, All Shook Up – made in a rock and roll tsunami from 1977 to 1980, are about as great as any such sequence in rock history and they hold up beautifully all these years later. Their American breakthrough, Live At Budokan, is in the running for best live album of all time. Some of their studio albums are better than others, but they have never made anything like a bad one. And they will all rock you ‘til your eyes bulge out. Promise.

GLIDE and the Tenderloin Museum Present the Screening of Lost Footage of Cecil Williams, Followed by a GLIDE Talk with Rev. Cecil Williams, Janice Mirikitani and Hon. Willie L. Brown, Jr.
Event on 2016-04-27 18:00:00
GLIDE is excited to continue its thought-leaders’ series with a screening of Lost Footage of Cecil Williams, part of the 1975 PBS series Interface, directed by Robert Zagone on Wednesday, April 27 at GLIDE Church. Following the screening, three beloved San Francisco icons, Reverend Cecil Williams, Janice Mirikitani (who joined Williams in 1965 to build GLIDE’s many programs), and Hon. Willie L. Brown, Jr., (two-term Mayor of San Francisco and legendary Speaker of the California State Assembly), will reminisce about this unique era in San Francisco's history and share insightful dialogue on creating unconditional love, radical acceptance and beloved community throughout San Francisco's past, present and future.

Thanks to the heroic efforts of film director Robert Zagone and the Tenderloin Museum, a 1975 television program on Reverend Williams, the legendary leader of GLIDE Church, is now available for showing after four decades. Zagone, whose 1966 film Drugs in the Tenderloin has played to two sold-out showings at the Tenderloin Museum and a series of sold-out showings at the Roxie Theater, directed the television program for the national PBS series, Interface, which presented an innovative perspective on African-American and Latino culture. Zagone captured Williams at his most fiery and most revolutionary. It is this young, charismatic Williams whose Sunday services mesmerized audiences at GLIDE and which became renowned throughout the world. If you want to see the essence of Cecil Williams, you have to see this film.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Reverend Cecil Williams, for over 50 years, has expanded the limits of spirituality, compassion and diversity as Co-Founder and Minister of Liberation of GLIDE Memorial United Methodist Church in San Francisco. As minister, author, social activist, lecturer, community leader and spokesperson for the poor and underserved communities, Reverend Williams is respected and recognized as a national leader on the forefront of change and in the struggle for civil and human rights. His ministry underscores his roots in liberation theology.

Often considered controversial and radical, Rev. Williams was one of the first clergymen to take a revolutionary stand for same sex couples by presiding over their weddings nearly five decades before today’s marriage equality victory. His vision for the 21st century church can be seen in GLIDE’s unique and powerful blend of spirituality, principled compassion, and cutting edge programs for those most in need. With a membership of over 11,000 and located in the heart of the San Francisco’s toughest neighborhoods, GLIDE is one of the fastest growing United Methodist churches in North America. People of all races, ethnic backgrounds, cultures, social classes, ages, faiths, and sexual orientations join together at every Sunday Celebration to experience the energy of spiritual liberation coupled with the fusion of jazz, blues and gospel performed by the renowned GLIDE Ensemble and the Change Band.

Rev. Cecil Williams is married to Janice Mirikitani, Co-Founder and Founding President of the Glide Foundation. Together, they have created a radical and unique partnership, bringing a powerful yet sensitive direction to GLIDE’s many social programs which offer comprehensive support services to San Francisco’s poor and homeless communities to overcome the barriers of poverty, violence, addiction, dependency and low self-worth. The organization has held steady the vision of supporting and uplifting the disenfranchised through unconditional love, acceptance and respect for over five decades.

Williams has authored two books, I’M ALIVE: An Autobiography and NO HIDING PLACE: Empowerment and Recovery for Our Troubled Communities and co-authored BEYOND THE POSSIBLE: 50 Years of Creating Radical Change in a Community Called GLIDE with Mirikitani.

Janice Mirikitani, a Sansei (third generation) Japanese American, is recognized as a poet, visionary, editor, administrator and community activist. Mirikitani is the Co-Founder and Founding President of GLIDE where she in partnership with her husband, Reverend Cecil Williams, have achieved worldwide recognition for their groundbreaking organization which empowers San Francisco’s poor and marginalized communities to make meaningful changes in their lives to break the cycle of poverty and dependence. For over 50 years, they built comprehensive programs that provide education, recovery support, primary and mental health care, job training, housing and human services. Mirikitani's passion has been to create programs for women and families as they struggle with issues of substance abuse, rape, incest, domestic violence, the AIDS crisis, single parenting, childcare, health/wellness, education, and jobs development.

Mirikitani is San Francisco’s second Poet Laureate, appointed in 2000. She has authored five books of poetry — OUT OF THE DUSK, AWAKE IN THE RIVER; SHEDDING SILENCE; WE, THE DANGEROUS, and LOVE WORKS — and is the editor of nine landmark anthologies, which provide platforms for writers of color, women, youth and children. Mirikitani is the co-author of the BEYOND THE POSSIBLE: 50 Years of Creating Radical Change in a Community Called GLIDE with Rev. Williams. Mirikitani has also worked in civil rights causes for various multi ethnic communities, including the struggle for redress for Japanese Americans incarcerated during WWII.

Mirikitani has received two honorary doctorate degrees, graduated from UCLA, and received a teaching credential from UC Berkeley. She and her family were incarcerated in a Rohwer, Arkansas concentration camp with the mass internment of Japanese Americans during WWII.

Hon. Willie L. Brown, Jr. is the two-term Mayor of San Francisco, legendary Speaker of the California State Assembly, and widely regarded as the most influential African-American politician of the late twentieth century. He has been at the center of California politics, government, and civic life for an astonishing four decades. His career spans the American Presidency from Lyndon Johnson to George W. Bush, and he’s worked with every California Governor from Pat Brown to Arnold Schwarzenegger. From civil rights to education reform, tax policy, economic development, health care, international trade, domestic partnerships, and affirmative action, he’s left his imprimatur on every aspect of politics and public policy in the Golden State. As Mayor of California’s most cosmopolitan city, he refurbished and rebuilt the nation’s busiest transit system, pioneered the use of bond measures to build affordable housing, created a model juvenile justice system, and paved the way for a second campus of the University of California, San Francisco, to serve as the anchor of a new development that will position the City as a center for the burgeoning field of biotechnology. Today, he heads the Willie L. Brown, Jr., Institute on Politics and Public Service, where this acknowledged master of the art of politics shares his knowledge and skills with a new generation of California leaders.

The Tenderloin Museum celebrates the rich history of one of San Francisco’s oldest and most unique neighborhoods. The museum's permanent collection tells the story of the neighborhood from its rebuilding after the 1906 earthquake through the present. The vibrant community based arts and educational programming is built on the diverse culture of this historic neighborhood. The Tenderloin Museum is a project of Uptown Tenderloin, Inc., a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization. Uptown Tenderloin sponsored the application that created the national Uptown Tenderloin Historic District, which includes 409 buildings on the National Registry of Historic Places. Uptown Tenderloin also led the effort to install nearly 100 historic plaques on Tenderloin buildings, and nine “Lost Landmark” sidewalk plaques. The organization also worked with Academy of Art University to create and install murals reflecting Tenderloin history on the PG&E substation at Eddy and Hyde Streets.

Event on 2016-05-26 09:00:00
MAPPING EXPERIENCES – ALIGNING for BUSINESS VALUE   Why it matters: Products and services are increasingly interconnected. Ecosystems are the new competitive advantage. The winners will be determined by how well their offerings fit with each other and how well they fit into people’s lives.  The use of systematic, visual representations exposes previously unseen opportunities for improvement and for growth. You’ve may have encountered some of the various approaches already in use – customer journey maps, service blueprints, experience maps, and more.   This workshop introduces the concept of “alignment diagrams,” a category of diagram that includes a range of visual tools to inform strategy. You’ll learn fundamental principles of mapping and have the chance to apply them in hands-on exercises.    What you will learn: Core concepts of mapping –  To start, you’ll get solid understanding of mapping experiences and the role the practice can play in organizations.  Initiating a project – Before beginning, it’s important to frame a diagraming effort properly. This includes determining the perspective, focus, and scope, among other things.  Conducting research – Maps of experiences aren’t made in isolation, rather based on research. In this section, you’ll learn how to translate observations and insights into a diagram. Creating an illustration – Visualizing experiences is powerful – it’s what brings teams together and gives them a common vision. In this section, you’ll learn the fundamental aspects diagramming.   Strategic alignment – In the end, it’s not the “map” but the activity of “mapping” that’s most important. To conclude the day, you’ll find out how facilitating conversations is the key to a successful mapping effort.  Who should attend: This workshop is suited for designers, product managers, marketing specialists, and business leaders looking to understand how to better get an overview of the customer experience. The course assumes some familiarity with product or service design and/or customer experience management, though that is not a prerequisite.  Who is teaching the workshop: Jim Kalbach is a noted author, speaker, and instructor in user experience design, information architecture, and strategy. He is currently Head of Consulting and Education at Mural.ly, an online virtual whiteboard solution.
