Communion, the brainchild of Ben Lovett (of Mumford & Sons), Kev Jones, and Ian Grimble, has now added San Francisco to its list of international outposts. The club night-turned-label is making a splash in the US: besides October 3rd's launch at Cafe du Nord and a re-launch of their Brooklyn night, they're also throwing a three-day Communion in the Redwoods event in Big Sur, CA.
