Of course, this being the 4th of July holiday weekend, you know you’re about to go get pretty fucked up at least one of the days, whether you’re in the city, slutting it up in Vegas or houseboating like Gramps used to do in Shasta. That’s why it’s pretty awesome that the FREE Fillmore Jazz Festival is happening on both Saturday and Sunday. According to the event website, it’s the largest free jazz festival on the West Coast — consider me officially impressed.
In addition to like a million stages with fairly major players in the current jazz world, there will also be standard festival fare, like booths selling oddities such as hemp condoms and soap made from goldfish, the best turkey leg you’ll ever eat in your life, and some radio station giving away pens and bumper stickers. There’s also lots of places for you to get your drink on, both within the festival limits and at the surrounding bars/restaurants.
Do something good for yourself this weekend and listen to some FREE live jazz! This might be your only chance — you know you’re not paying that cover at Yoshi’s any time soon.Fillmore Jazz Festival Saturday, July 3 & Sunday, July 4, 10am-6pm Fillmore Street (between Jackson & Eddy) FREE
