Deep breaths. This past weekend was extremely emotional for the nostalgically inclined. Postal Service at the Greek. Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake at Candlestick. Weezer at America’s Cup Pavilion.
It’s officially the heart of outdoor concert season, regardless of what our summer weather has to say about it. The Greek, Stern Grove, Candlestick Park (!), America’s Cup Pavilion, Golden Gate Park with Outside Lands on the horizon…each venue hosts super hotly anticipated shows here in the coming weeks. Let’s get out there and dance ‘til we’re warm.
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.
There's LOTS of fun to be had this week. Let's get right to it.
Not gonna lie. It’s a slow week on the local live music front, you guys. Of course, in San Francisco, that just means there’s a million good shows to see, as opposed to a bazillion, give or take.
In our never-ending mission to combat the rise of mind-narrowing music, this week’s column focus on band’s who just want to trip you the eff out and/or blow your mind. Check out these bands and watch the epiphanies roll in.
