We're proceeding under the assumption that your answer to the above question is nothing but a resounding "Hell yes." And having thus agreed that free outdoor shows tend to be wonderful, consider supporting the Mission Creek Music and Arts Festival's quest to put on such an event next month in S.F.'s McLaren Park. The two-year-old annual concert is a nascent summer tradition, and while this year's lineup hasn't been announced yet, past performers include the Fresh & Onlys, Kelley Stoltz, The Dodos, Devendra Banhart, and Vetiver.

The organizers are seeking $3,000 in donations by August 26 to put on this show, and they've already secured over $1,100. In exchange for donations, they're giving out a Mission Creek compilation CD, limited edition posters, free tickets to other Mission Creek concerts, and more. Big spenders can even get a chance to have the bands play at their house, or curate next year's festival.

If you're down to support free live music in one of San Francisco's more under-appreciated parks, check out Mission Creek's Kickstarter page.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
