Couldn't Get Tickets to the Beck Show?

It's quite possible that half of San Francisco was on the TicketWeb website last night at 5:00, trying to capitalize on the out-of-the-blue announcement that Beck will be playing The Independent this Saturday.

The Man Behind Slow Food Rocks: Tom Shepard, CEO of Festival Network

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.
