Live Music This Week: Willie Nelson, Charli XCX, and More

Willie Nelson continues his campaign for coolest granddad to ever grace the earth.

Live Music This Week: Memory Tapes, Built to Spill, and Tropics

We’d like to congratulate our fellow San Franciscans for achieving the distinction of the city that sleeps the least! This is a true team effort, and we have to think your insatiable appetite for live music is partly responsible.

Sleep when you're dead or have moved to Arizona. 

Live Music This Week: Death Cab for Cutie, Phono Del Sol & More

The best in classic and up-and-coming rock hit Bay Area stages this week. Plus food trucks galore.

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.
