Under-the-radar festival alert: you should absolutely consider the Huichica Festival in Sonoma for your upcoming weekend plans. The lineup is filled with all sorts of soon-to-be and already-prominent acts such as Sonny and the Sunsets, Fresh and Onlys, and Amen Dunes (more on them below). Plus wine. Duh.
Let’s dance. And rock. And stand idly in amazement. And headbang. And worship. And stay up too late on weeknights. And empty our wallets. And...check out these shows already.
It’s not quite Goatchella, but this week is the unofficial start of Fauxchella or whatever silly Coachella pun with which you’d like to embarrass yourself (note: I am the king of this game). Which means there are too many shows happening and you’re about to go broke…
Big week on the live music tip, folks. Dig deep and get your act together and check out the following acts.
Sad news out of the Fillmore district last week: the beloved jazz/hip-hop lounge formerly known as Yoshi’s—and more recently known as The Addition—shut its doors this past week. In its honor, we suggest putting on a Duke Ellington record (The OKeh Ellington), pouring a glass of sumpin-sumpin, pouring some of said sumpin-sumpin on the floor, and remember that we at least still have Yoshi's Oakland and SFJazz Center.
A killer concert is all you want for Christmas, and that’s what you shall have.
