Music | Events

We want Cafe Zoë to be your fun place to come for happy hour and stay for whatever fun event is going on. You can expect Trivia every Wednesday night, "$3 Thursday" when bottled beers are $3 and draft beer is $5 all night, and live music every Friday night on a usual week. Other times, we are hosting fundraisers for local causes, knitting group meet-ups, community meetings, pop-up shops, and more.

We firmly believe that we book some of the best musicians of the Bay Area and beyond. Come see the local and touring acts. The musicians that have performed at the café range from anything to mellow acoustic to fast-paced rock and roll.

We are always looking for new musicians to come perform, please email with links to music if you’re interested in booking your band.
We are very excited to be featured on The Young Turks for hosting FairVote's Election Reform Get-Together with Krist Novoselic and Rob Richie!

We had a great time and learned a lot. We hope you will enjoy this TYT segment recapping the event. As fans of the network prior, we were particularly excited that they wanted to come cover our event.

The Ford Family Band

Friday, April 27th 7:00-9:00pm
After years of touring together in several bands (including Marlow and Bump), wife and husband pair Angela Ford and Todd Pasternack enlisted their 11-year old son to join them on guitar in The Ford Family Band. With a mix of singer-songwriter originals and covers spanning from Tom Petty to Neil Young and the Grateful Dead, The Ford Family Band leans on their 70s-rock influences, bringing their own take on lyric-driven songs and improvisation.
