Happy Rocktober

Although Austin, Texas has rightfully earned the title of being the live music capital of the world–thanks to the diverse array of artists that grace the numerous local venues seven nights a week. From punk rock to bluegrass, Austin has it covered. But this month, the SF live music scene can boast a formidable lineup that definitely rivals that ... ahem … little Texas town. Whether you like to dance, or like to rock, there’s at least one, or two, or 12 live shows this month that are sure to please. Here are some highlights of SF’s mucho music month that I’m not afraid to call Rocktober.
