Last October, Blackbird initiated a residency program for young artists, both men and women, that gave them monthly gigs at the restaurant. The venture was successful from the get-go. Esparza next approached the lone female band leader, jazz vocalist Jackie Gage, with a nebulous wish to put together a program that would have a decidedly femme vibe. The plan was to highlight women with all kinds of expertise, from deejays and poets to visual artists and, of course, musicians. The result is Fatale, a series of themed music shows at the Blackbird that will take place every Wednesday night starting March 19. The events’ intent is to foster “talent, quality, community exchange and deliciousness.” Also on the docket are occasional “big shows,” with many more artists, vendors and any surprises that might fit the concept. If all goes as envisioned, co-planners Gage and musician Nehal Abuelata hope to add fashion, film, dance and more to the mix.

And so they did. A boisterous crowd of about 830 people filled the Fairmont’s Imperial Ballroom for the 28th annual fundraiser, which had Reed Hastings as its presenting sponsor. The biggest highlight, besides perhaps the evening-ending dance party, was the presentation of the La Familia award to the Escamez family of Redwood City. The family, led by teacher, theater director and social worker Veronica Escamez, has served Bay Area Latino families through its nonprofit, Casa Circulo Cultural. She was joined in the honor by her sons. Gerardo Escamez, Octavio Escamez and Fernando Escamez are all key parts of the Casa Circulo family, and Manuel Escamez is a professor at the University of Mexico.
