When is the last time you classed it up, even the tiniest smidge ... lost the post-work sweatpants, took a shower, maybe went to a museum or read a book? Yeah, neither have we. Perhaps we're projecting just a teensy bit, but San Francisco, it's time to pull yourself together. And if you're looking for an alternative to your typical Monday night takeout and Netflix routine, look no further than tonight's free jazz showcase at the new SFJAZZ Center.

The culmination of a community band workshop series led by Bay Area musician, composer and bandleader Adam Theis, tonight's performance brings together intermediate to advanced musicians from diverse backgrounds: high school jazz enthusiasts to retired musicians to everyone in between (by audition only). As you can see from the program's teaser video, these aren't your average open-mic level performers: they've got some serious musical chops. And if you've never visited the city's newest temple to jazz, there's really no better excuse than a free night of cozy jazz tracks to liven up your week.
