Opening for LL Cool J this Sunday!

Thursday, September 3rd

Scharpling & Wurster at Great American Music Hall

Friday, September 4th

Dramarama, Halou, DJ Pegasister at The Chapel

Bitter and sarcastic is really the only way one should take their pop punk. Dramarama were bitter, angry old men before they were old. So they’ve got to be especially good now.

Saturday, September 5th

Billy Joel at AT&T Park

Billy Joel is simply one of the greatest songwriters in the history of modern pop music. Don’t agree with me? That’s OK. Sometimes you are wrong.

The Fresh & Onlys, Kelley Stoltz, Male Gaze at The Chapel

Sunday, September 6th

The Damned, CJ Ramone at Great American Music Hall

This 70’s punk double header is going to be a solid, high energy dance party. The Damned are sounding as good as ever, and CJ Ramone does a full on Ramones set.

LL Cool J, Salt N Pepa, Bell Biv Devoe, Naughty By Nature, MC Lyte, Case at Concord Pavilion

Monday, September 7th

Heiro Day at 3rd and Chestnut in Oakland

For the low price of $19.93 (til infinity…), we have the most amazing 8 hours of hip hop you can imagine. We’ve got Bay Area legends Heiroglyphics, Luniz, and The Coup. We’ve got young talents like Domo Genesis, Crown City Rockers, and Foreign Legion. We’ve got LA folks that NEVER play up here like Cali Agents, The Alkaholiks, and Compton’s Most Wanted. We also have way more that I can’t even begin to list off… This is the best way to treat the holiday weekend.

Wednesday, September 9th

Couches, Divers at Hemlock Tavern

Melvins, Big Business, Disrupted Continuum at Great American Music Hall

The Ohio Players at Yoshi’s
