This Saturday in Potreo Del Sol park, the local music aficionados from the Bay Bridged and Tiny Telephone recording studio return with their third annual celebration of music, arts & crafts, food from trucks and a park that more people really ought to hang out in.
Last year's lineup packed the natural hillside amphitheater overlooking the bandshell and this year's all-day, all-ages festival promises to be even bigger with a second stage and an expanded corral of food trucks (not to mention a playground, a skatepark and a beer garden for the grownups).
Topping the stellar music lineup are hometown garage rock heroes Thee Oh Sees, whose latest addition to their prolific discography landed early this year to much critical acclaim. On the Mission Stage, LA-via-Portland electropoppers YACHT will close out the evening. Filling out the afternoon tunes are noted S.F. expat ladyrapper K.Flay, L.A.'s Bleached, Blouse from Portland, Marnie Stern, Painted Palms, B. Hamilton and S.F. locals Social Studies, Cool Ghouls, and Surf Club:
On the food front: Doc's of the Bay will be slinging fast food-style burgers on trademark challah buns and the Voodoo Van will be turning out devilishly inspired sandwiches and Juju Balls. With Kasa Indian, Kung Fu Tacos, and the Tacos San Buena trucks in attendance, fans of the "Taco Fusion" genre should have no problem trying to find a bite to eat. Frozen Kuhsterd will be doing desserts, Whisk on Wheels will bring the lighter truck fare and newcomer Adam's Grub Truck will hopefully be bringing this absurd/delicious take on the classic fried chicken sandwich.
Tickets to the shindig are $20 a pop or $25 if you procrastinate and buy at the door. If you've always wanted to meet local indie rock niceguy John Vanderslice, the VIP tickets are $50 and include a tour of Tiny Telephone studios, 2 drink tickets, a silk screened poster and VIP bathroom access.
Below, Thee Oh Sees with their pleasantly dark "Toe Cutter - Thumb Buster." For an even deeper sampling of this weekend's tunes, check out the latest edition of the Bay Bridged podcast
