The weekend of August 28-30 is shaping up to be a veritable music bonanza. Organizers of San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival have announced a series of night shows for those who just can’t get enough live music that weekend (or who don’t take well to crowds.) The night show series will take place at three fine San Francisco venues: The Independent, Mezzanine, and Rickshaw Stop and will feature a tasty line up of artists such as Calexico, Conor Oberst,The Dodos, The Dirtbombs, Ty Segall, Gang Gang Dance and more.
For the full line up and schedule, click here. Tickets go on sale at 10AM today! Calexico at The Independent? I’m on it.
Monsters of Folk – comprised of Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James and singer/songwriter M.Ward – will be releasing their first collaborative album on September 22nd. Although these critically acclaimed artists have shared the stage before, this album marks their first recorded output as a band.
Tickets are on sale for the supergroup’s Bay Area performance on October 17 at The Fox Theater in Oakland. Though I’m not sure how smart it was to schedule a performance during The Treasure Island Festival.
