Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Calling all creative types: make your way to Fort Mason next weekend for a two-day extravaganza of art, music, design, film, and more. A partnership between VICE and Intel, The Creators Project has been attracting the art- and tech-savvy set all over the world—Beijing, Sao Paulo, Paris, Seoul, New York—and next weekend marks the first-ever San Francisco event. Now in its third year, it's about time the festival touched down in the country's most burgeoning epicenter of technology.

If you haven't heard of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, you've been living in a cave. After numerous festival circuits and headlining sets, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are planning a highly anticipated 2-night takeover at The Fox Theater in Oakland on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
How many places can you name in the latest Yeah Yeah Yeahs' music video? Quite a few, we'd bet. It's set in SF. The NYC band hits the streets of our fair city, starting at the Warfield dressing room, then dancing atop parked cars, down mysterious alleyways and through the Tenderloin. SF definitely looks good set against a YYY soundtrack.
Catch them live at BFD June 6.
It's that time of year when the Bay Area's Live 105, SF local radio's last remaining source for GOOD indie music (if you don't listen to Soundcheck, remedy that immediately), flexes its CBS-sized muscles for the annual BFD (also known as Big F-ing Deal) concert. And flex them they did, scoring A-list headliners the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, whose new album, It's Blitz! has been on perma rotation in our office for about a month ago. Joining the YYYs are a welcome bit of nostalgia - 311 and The Offspring, both bands who were most definitely part of the late 90s high school party canon.
