2020 was not the year we planned for, but it was the year we got. It was a hard year for those considered “non essential” … however, these bands still managed to create and release new music during a pandemic.

I have a love-hate relationship with creating TOP 20 playlists of local bands. On one hand, the playlist becomes my favorite thing to listen to for the next year. Additionally, it makes it super easy for me to recommend bands to friends. I also love posting a link to the playlist in my friend’s Facebook feeds when they say, “tired of my music, I need a new playlist.”

Phono Del Sol officially kicks off the summer concert season in San Francisco—and unofficially marks the start of summer dog walks.

This last weekend at BottleRock brought together hundreds of musicians, chefs, vintners, brewers, and distillers for a three-day blend of music, wine, food, craft brews, and spirits.

Viewers can enjoy a live performance from any of their four stages with their eyes shut.
Recently Netflix and Hulu both released their documentaries about Fyre Fest. All my friends have watched it … then they called me and were like, “OMG … Did you see the documentaries?

I’m planning my biggest event of the year … NO, I’m not watching a documentary about how everything could go wrong for festival organizers!”
