Treasure Island Music Festival: Saturday's Top 5

There’s no denying the buzz surrounding Treasure Island Music Festival this weekend. At every café you go to, during any weekend conversation you may have, and any exchange with a music junkie will inevitably lead you to some form of  “TI” dialogue. Although you won’t have to weave through crowds, peeling between stages to catch 30 minutes of your favorite band (whoever thought of the alternating – not overlapping – festie schedule is nothing short of genius), we’ve still got weekend fever for these five acts.

Saturday’s Top 5

This Week's Hottest Events: Bob Dylan, Wallpaper and Rear Window

Music: Bob Dylan
Chances are you don't have tickets to Bob Dylan's sold-out show at the Fox tomorrow. Lucky for you, the legendary musician who single-handedly redefined song as poetry, is playing a second show at the Warfield on Wednesday, and tickets are not being sold in advance. Bring your sleeping bag, camp out at the box office on Tuesday night and come prepared with $60 cash. If you call yourself a music lover, this is your duty. $60; Wednesday, 8/25; The Warfield, 982 Market St., 800-745-3000, thewarfieldtheatre.com

Geographer Re-Release Gets a Wallpaper and Limousines Makeover

Tricycle Records re-released Geographer's Animal Shapes today with the two added bonus tracks. The "Kites (The Limousines Remix)," and "Paris (Wallpaper Remix)" are available on iTunes and through their label.

Oakland's Wallpaper to Headline Their First Show at the Indy

2010 has been a very, very good for the guys in Wallpaper, that perpetually partying-down duo of Eric Frederic (better known as Ricky Reed) and drummer Arjun Singh.

Inbox: Moon Duo, Or, The Whale, Wallpaper

Oh, hello Moon Duo. Nice to meet you. San Francisco's Sanae Yamada and Erik Johnson (of Wooden Shjips) are introducing themselves with a near seven-minute lo-fi-space-y and uber haunting jam. Listening to "Stumbling 22nd St" is like walking in to a Quentin Tarrantino movie during one of his classic stomach wrenching scenes. Sit tight for the release of Escape (Feb. 16, 2010).

Holy butts, Or, the Whale. In a True Blood moment the main character of said band's new video for "Rusty Gold" reveals his birthday suit and shape-shifts into a chocolate lab. Not sure what the message is here, but the video seems to be a perfect fit for the song's backwoods feel.
