Dead Meadow, Rubies, Kelley Stoltz at Free McLaren Fest
Mission Creek Music Fest has a ton of shows rolling out in mid-July, but this one in particular caught my eye. On Saturday, July 18 the promoters are hosting a big old (folk 'n' psych 'n') rock 'n' roll party at McLaren Park with Dead Meadow, Kelley Stoltz, Persephone's Bees, Devon Williams, Rubies,Bart Davenport, Xoel Lopez, Leopold & His Fiction, The Moore Brothers, Brian Glaze & The Night Shift, and Coatsie & Mellows. Lots and lots of great local acts there, intermixed with folks from L.A. and Spain(!), and DJs Neil Martinson & Vikki V. The concert goes from 11:30 a.m. until 8 p.m., and is all ages. One of the best parts? It's also free.
