August is a hot month for music in the Bay Area! It’s a time that caters to the concertgoer, when competing venues stack their calendars with talent harvested from festival bills circulating throughout Northern CA. Late August will fill your pockets full of ticket stubs and your complexion with some Vitamin D, marking the unofficial start to our Indian summer.

Local indie powerhouses Noise Pop and friends (Do 415, Ne Tiemas, Nomic and The Bon Vivants) are teaming up to throw one hell of a FREE food and music celebration next month. The 20th Street Block Party will highlighting the local spirit, culture, diversity and artistic collectives of the outer Mission and Dogpatch neighborhoods.

The 2013 lineup highlights some of the most creative and successful innovators in hospitality and entertainment the Bay Area has to offer. Admission is FREE and all ages are welcomed. If interested in libations, bring a valid ID or Driver’s License and the event is entirely smoke-free.


A wide array of musical talent will be on display at the 20th Street Block Party. Offering a taste of talent both native and nationally recognized, this year’s bill has a little something to tickle the eardrums of just about everyone in attendance.
