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.
