This Week in Live Music: Robyn, Veruca Salt, Sharon Van Etten, and More

Rockin' Robyn

The Treasure Island Music Festival lineup was announced last week, and—shocker—it's packed with some of our favorite acts around right now. Headliners Outkast and Massive Attack are only a fraction of the draw—Alt-J, Washed Out, Zedd, TV on the Radio, and on and on and on, good lord, (New Pornographers!). If the festival isn’t sold out already, it will be soon, so . . . get on it already. Yeesh.

Step Up in Golden Gate Heights for the Ultimate Weekend Hike

Exploring neighborhoods is an intrinsic part of getting to know any city, whether visiting as a traveler or rambling through a local hood.
