ULUV Plans Massive "Music Day" of Free Concerts Citywide This Saturday

Posted By on Wed, Jun 18, 2014 at 1:35 PM

Maybe you've seen those spray-painted messages on sidewalks around S.F.: "ULUV guitar?" "ULUV horns?" "ULUV the bay?"

Well, U aren't hallucinating. The signs are part of a viral marketing campaign for ULUV Music Day -- a citywide event this Saturday that will place more than 100 performers in public venues for an afternoon of free concerts.

It's the biggest-yet event from ULUV, an organization started by local recording engineer Michael Starita and Bay Vibes founder Robin Applewood. The idea is to showcase and strengthen the Bay Area music scene -- and Saturday will be a pretty large demonstration of strength. Musicians will perform in cafes, on sidewalks, and in BART stations all over San Francisco. At 6 p.m., there will be a mass gathering in Dolores Park, where all the musicians will play a song together. Then the party will move to Dolores Park Cafe for an open mic performance.

This follows ULUV's inaugural event last fall, which brought more than 30 acts on three stages in the vicinity of 111 Minna. After the party, ULUV hosted a free dental clinic for local musicians.

This year, the massive selection of local music will be the main attraction. Here's the lineup for ULUV Music Day, which takes place from 12 to 5 p.m. (and after 6 at Dolores Park) this Saturday, June 21:

  • 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.'"
