As Yoshi's prepares a second act in San Francisco, the club broadens its sound.
by Rachel Swan
East Bay Express

Forget the edamame and the moderately popular Blue Note jazz artists. These days, a Monday night at Yoshi's is tantamount to a Friday night at any other club in the world. It's certainly the only night you'll see sweat vaporizing on the club's ceiling. Once the domain of local or lesser-known musicians, Mondays at Yoshi's now belong to raucous ten-to-twelve piece swing, Afro-Latin, or Cuban son bands, often equipped with large horn sections and coordinated guayabera dress shirts. Patrons cha-cha across every available inch of dancefloor as waitresses scurry to keep pace with the steady demand for cocktails. On a good night, the joint fills up well before ten.
