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

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.
