“SENSATIONAL… A fierce but kindhearted fusion of comedy, burlesque, performance art and rock ‘n’ roll” – The New York Times

So much has happened since we last sang and danced together San Francisco. So much to talk about. So much to sing about. Rizo has found the perfect venue to meet you and greet you her fabulous friends. The Great Star Theater is a hundred year old Chinese Opera House in the otherworldly Chinatown section of San Francisco. The whole place is like an old world dream.

Rizo will be performing songs from her new album as well as favorites we all love.

This is the perfect pre-Christmas Christmas gift for your friends who hate the holidays but love music and fabulocity.

Don't wait a minute to get your tickets.

Doors at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. There will be an intermission, bar with drinks and snacks, and smoking patio.


The New York Times once referred to Rizo (né Amelia Zirin-Brown) as “a formidable belter who can sustain phrases and notes even when sprawled on her back on a piano and scissoring her legs.” They’re not alone in that enthusiasm. Rizo has received a New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship, a Time Out London theater award, and a London Cabaret Award. Rizo has collaborated with Moby, Reggie Watts, and Yo-Yo Ma, the latter on his Songs of Joy & Peace album, which won a Grammy Award.

Taking a cue from Edith Piaf, Rizo fully embraces the role of chanteuse. A provocateur with an electric wit, she has been called a “diva par excellence” by The Guardian. In 2019, Rizo starred in the Teatro Zinzanni production of “Love, Chaos and Dinner”, for which the Chicago Sun Times called her a “Grammy Award-winning vocalist whose powerhouse delivery is Lady Gaga meets Janis Joplin.”

As stated by The Wall Street Journal, “Rizo practically has the word ‘talent’ tattooed on her forehead.” In recordings, she is a mysterious figure, a siren ushering you through tableaus of heartbreak, lust, and the murkiness in between. Live, she is an eyeful.
