Best Bets This Week in Live Bay Area Music

We bring you this week’s edition of the Best Concert Bets from annoyingly sunny Los Angeles, site of this past weekend’s FYF Music Festival. We witnessed a few of this week’s acts with our own eyes, and we can report they’re all still rockin hard in the festival world. Put together your own Faux Yeah Festival in SF this week with these shows.

Trails & Ways

This is way better than a new album release: Oakland band Trails and Ways debuted a video game for their song "Como Te Vas," which basically lets anybody make their own mix of the song by remixing each element of the song into different, cute virtual landscapes.

 Flume

Major props to L.A.’s FYF Festival for drawing a clown car's worth of talent to the West Coast this week. The bourgeoning alternative/indie music fest has turned into a mini-Coachella, with similar curatorial inclinations to our own Treasure Island Music Festival. More importantly, it's an incidental coup for Bay Area music fans.
