Live Music This Week: Geographer, Grateful Dead, and More

Hey good news! Cafe Du Nord is BACK! The iconic music venue reopened its doors last week under new leadership. And yes, live music will be served occasionally. Let us rejoice.

Live Music This Week: Purity Ring, Vetiver, and More

Let’s rock and/or roll and/or clap and/or dance and/or nod our heads gently and/or squint at those bodies in the distance.

Live Music This Week: Seinabo Sey, Huichica Festival, Lil Wayne & More

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. 

Live Music This Week: D'Angelo, Sufjan Stevens, Christopher Owens & More

Do yourself a favor and listen to the new Jamie xx. TRUST. It’s probably the best thing since Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories. Start with "Gosh" and, well, see you next week.

Live Music This Week: Jenny Lewis, Spoon, Chromeo, and More

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. 

Live Music This Week: Lyrics Born, Lord Huron & More

We don't know about you, but we're ready to kick down these walls and listen to music outside. If you’re on board, you’re in luck. Napa Valley BottleRock festival arrives later this month, Live 105’s annual BFD comes to the peninsula June 6, the treasured Stern Grove kicks off mid-June, and Phono Del Sol comes to the Mission July 11. Grab your picnic basket...and a flask.

Live Music This Week: Esperanza Spalding, They Might Be Giants, The Rentals & More

Portland native Esperanza Spalding brings her virtuosic bass skills to the Independent this week, and more.

Live Music This Week: Decemberists, Waxahatchee, Merle Haggard & More

It's full-tilt indie this week, folks.

Live Music This Week: Faith No More, Sylvan Esso, Interpol & More

The trickle-down (or up?) effect of Coachella continues to pad the cultural wallets of the Bay Area, and steal from the actual wallets of Bay Area music obsessives. Happily.
