07/21/2016

It’s always bittersweet when Outside Lands finally releases the daily schedule. On one hand, you finally get to start planning your perfect festival experience.

Peter Gabriel + Sting bring the Hit Parade to SAP Center in San Jose

07/18/2016

When 15 or 16,000 middle aged (and up) folks form blocks-long lines on a Thursday night, you know there must be some Serious Nostalgia in play. I couldn’t help but think this, watching the line as I sat on a half wall eating a massive burrito*, the sun slowly dying in San Jose.

Phono del Chill

07/15/2016

Saturday was the 6th annual Phono del Sol Festival, the fun and easy going festival, which still feels like a little bit of a secret, run by The Bay Bridged. It’s small, it’s relaxed and it turns a small park in Potrero Hill into a place to discover bands new and local. With a bowl Read More

06/29/2016

Monday night I was lucky enough to score a ticket to the first of three sold-out nights with New York-based Real Estate. When I say sold-out, I mean ass-to-crotch all the way to the exit.

Burger Boogaloo 2016: Rock & Roll Resurrection

06/29/2016

The least shocking thing about Burger Boogaloo: Summer of Filth was that the gates opened late, and attendees lined up around the block to enter. After all, punk is not an abbreviation for punctual, and if the two-day price tag of $59, with headlining acts like The Mummies didn’t tip you off, this is not Read More

John Waters will return as host for a lineup stacked with the strange, anachronistic, outsider rock we have come to expect from Burger Records. The two-day festival in Oakland’s Mosswood Park features acts from the Bay Area and beyond ranging from Read More
