See you there.
On a sunny Saturday in July, do you have anything better to do than sit in a park while bands, some of them local, some of them nationally famous, attempt to entertain you? We doubt it. Phono Del Sol is becoming the biggest little music festival of the San Francisco summer, with acts like Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Wye Oak, and Nick Waterhouse. And today, we have set times for this weekend's gathering at Potrero Del Sol Park -- times you can use to plan your beer-buying, skateboard-trick-watching, food-truck-line-waiting, and whatever you do while Muni never comes. Here they are, along with a playlist of artists performing at the festival (compiled by festival promoter and local music blog The Bay Bridged):

Vetiver's Andy Cabic
Taking place on a small winery in Sonoma, with only two stages and a carefully curated list of talent and local food, Huichica Music Festival is the festival for people who hate music festivals. Founded in 2010 by Jeff Bundschu, owner of Gundlach Bundschu (California's oldest family-owned winery), and Eric D. Johnson of Fruit Bats, Huichica eliminates the chaos and crowds of the typical festival experience. Instead, there are clean bathrooms, a low band-to-audience ratio, and culinary offerings that meet wine country standards. Modest in size and unpretentious in atmosphere, it includes a Friday night concert and a Saturday of sunshine, bands, and the classy kind of day drinking.

This year Huichica celebrates its fifth birthday with a lineup that includes Vetiver, Mt. Eerie, and David Longstreth of Dirty Projectors, plus exclusive Gun Bun wine tasting and food offerings from Bay Area spots like Craftsman & Wolves and Salumeria. We caught up with Andy Cabic, leader of local outfitVetiver and a veteran of Huichica Music Festival to discuss Vetiver's upcoming album, his recent gig at Carnegie Hall, and the benefits of an intimate music festival. Vetiver performs this Friday, June 13, at Huichica.

Stern Grove Festival To Host Free Pop-Up Concerts Around S.F.

Stern Grove Festival
In its 77 years of providing free summer concerts to the public, the Stern Grove Festival has provided a stage for 770 different performances and entertained over six million attendees. Crazy, right?

Located on 19th Avenue and Sloat, Stern Grove is easy to get to for people who live in the Sunset District, but for people who live downtown or even further away, Stern Grove is a long way to go for a concert, even if it is free. This was the inspiration to start Grove on the Road, a program launching in early May that will be hosting "pop-up" concerts all over San Francisco.

"We started wondering how we could move beyond our confines of Stern Grove," says Steven Haines, who's been executive director of the Stern Grove Festival since 2006. "Even though it's free admission, some people can't make it to Stern. We wanted to engage communities who aren't so involved with the arts. We wanted to give more back to the community."

Woodsist Festival Announces 2014 Lineup and Dates

Categories: Music Festivals

White Fence at Woodsist in 2012.
The (((FolkYEAH!)))-presented Woodsist Festival -- perhaps the best reason ever to sit on the lawn of the Henry Miller Memorial Library in Big Sur for two days -- just announced the lineup for this year's sure-to-sell-out event. The big news is the move to the middle of a week in August this year, after trying a Sunday and Monday in mid-September in 2013. We think that's smart for daylight and warmth, though it may mean more competition when it comes to finding a place to stay in Big Sur. But as for performers at the annual gathering of cool kids, well, the bill for Woodsist's fifth year looks a fair bit like other recent lineups (Woods, Real Estate, Little Wings) with a few notable additions, like Angel Olsen and Kevin Morby.
