Live music San Francisco
Full disclosure: I skipped out on Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. I know, I know. But from the looks of my twitter/facebook/whatevergram accounts I can confirm you’re all beautiful music-obsessed heathens. I’ll make up for my truancy with perfect attendance at these shows this week. You should too…
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.
Before we get into this week’s best live music bets, a very enthusiastic kudos to the folks who staged another successful Phono Del Sol mini-fest at Potrero Del Sol Park on Saturday. Thee Oh Sees, Marnie Stern and YACHT headlined a perfect day of live music set to the visual backdrop of kids owning the skate park behind one of the stages. More please.
It’s time to celebrate America — that is, it's time to celebrate EVERYTHING about America. Music included.
Sometimes it's exhausting just looking at the San Francisco music calendar. This is one of those weeks. This week's buffet is long — so ours is too.
With one weekend down and one to go, Coachella 2013's pretty much in full swing. That means your Instagram/Twitter/Facebook/Vine/Everything feeds are spewing enough concert weirdness/pool party/desert vacation pics to trigger your own quest for revenge by seeking out the best live shows here to make up for the fact that you aren't there.
