Page didn't load for ya? Message said it was sold out? Console yourself by buying tickets to some other shows.

Meet Tom Shepard, a man with a plan. Under his leadership, Festival Network, the events company responsible for the legendary Newport Jazz Festivals—which helped to propel Bob Dylan into the national spotlight in 1963—has continued a legacy of what he calls “premium eclectic” music events nationwide. Now the San Francisco-based businessman is bringing Slow Food Rocks to life—the event he sees as the perfect union between cause and venue for his Bay Area audience. We caught up with him in between his preparations for this weekend's festivities.
