Free Concert in the Park, at Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA


October 2nd, 3rd and 4th...it's FREE! Highlights, as far as I can tell (I'm sure there'll will be new favorites that I have no idea who they are now):

Boz Scaggs and the Blue Velvet Band
Billy Bragg
Okkervil River
Steve Martin with the Steep Canyon Rangers
Aimee Mann
Emmylou Harris
Old Crow Medicine Show
The Knitters
Neko Case
Old 97's
Lyle Lovett & His Large Band
Booker T. & the Drive-By Truckers
MC Hammer (yeah, seriously, it's Hammer)
Billy Joe Shaver (if any of you don't suck, you might recognize him as doing vocals and some of the music on Squidbillies)

So. god. damn. pumped for this.

The free concerts after the horse races are good. Pinback plays every year and The Flaming Lips played this year but I didn't see. Sad

Holy cow, what a weekend.

To start, I probably saw less than half the bands I wanted to. Of that half, probably less than half of them I was able to see in optimal conditions. The crowd was at least twice as large as it should have been for being comfortable and manageable. I definitely still heard some great music and had a good time, though. Overall, I'd have to rate the first day the best, and Lyle Lovett and His Large Band the best performance of that day and the whole festival, of course, of those performance which I was able to enjoy. I hung out with good friends, ate good food, drank good beer, passed on good drugs and did about twice as much driving as I would have liked, but overall it was still dope. Damn did I fuck myself on homework to make up, though Tongue
