People can expect another street-clogging weekend as hundreds and thousands of people are expected to embark to the city for concerts, sailing competitions and Giants games.

About 65,000 are expected each day at Golden Gate Park for the three-day Outside Lands Music Festival. On the other side of the city, the struggling San Francisco Giants will take on the Baltimore Orioles in a three-game series which starts on Friday. Then down at Pier 27, Cheech & Chong and Train and company will entertain thousands at the America's Cup Pavilion on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

KCBS reports that Muni officials are encouraging visitors and locals alike to take public transportation. Additionally, the agency is running buses every five minutes to Outside Lands and Giants games from Civic Center Bart Station. 

At least the BART strike won't be a factor.

  • 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.'"
