Thousand of Bay Areans enjoyed a nice day in the park over the weekend -- except this garden party cost $60 in admission, and came with top-notch musical accompaniment, $7 drinks, grass, sun, a video arcade, a ferris wheel, friends, and stunning view of the Bay.

Cold War relic Treasure Island – smack dab in the middle of the San Francisco Bay -- stirred from a decade of post-military slumber Saturday and Sunday to host 16 bands on two stages over two days and about 10,000 ...

5:09 p.m. Saturday Sept 15. Treasure Island

San Franciscans enjoy an eminently humble, modest festival with two stages and under a dozen bands at Treasure Island today. Bright sun, a swift breeze and about 10,000 people on a narrow strip next to the beach greets incoming visitors. The view of the City is extraordinarily beautiful, as well as the collection of men and women presenting some skin but keeping jackets nearby for when the the cool air moves in off ...

  • 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.'"
