Year four found Switchboard in a new venue, the lovely art deco-era Brava Theater. The change of venue brought a new energy to the festivities, as well as an improved sound system and larger seating capacity. Headlined by local indie band Birds and Batteries and Causing a Tiger – the ever-talented Carla Kihlstedt’s latest musical incarnation, with Matthias Bossi and Shahzad Ismaily – the festival also featured acts including the quirky trio Wiener Kids, The Genie’s unique “scratch guitar” work, and the wide-ranging jazz compositions of the Bay Area Composers Big Band.
