SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – AUGUST 2011: BeatBox is San Francisco’s newest venue for live music, dance parties, performances, art exhibits, meetings, and community events. Although its patrons expect great music in hip and comfortable surroundings, it’s a safe bet that no one has higher expectations than BeatBox’ three creators: Andy Zivic, Paul Saccone and Tchukon Shanks.
