Blow Up
Become a Fan!           Follow us!

Forget about the endless commentary and televised pre-game festivities preceding the Super Bowl this Sunday and get ready for some bone-crushing football with two of the most well-respected veteran rock acts still touring. Start things off with the thundering bass of Lemmy and Motorhead before SoCal punks Social Distortion set up shop in at The Warfield for a two-night stand. If you're looking for a more temperate scene, don't miss buzz-worthy Nashville songstress Tristen's San Francisco debut or the sultry sounds of Cat Power. Legendary SF skater/artist/musician Tommy Guerrero celebrates the release of his new album and Egyptian Lover returns with his classic 80s electro beats. Save a few bucks with Free Museum Weekend and pay homage to The Dude at the 8th Annual Big Lebowski Party. And amid the football hype, don't forget about our beloved SF Giants. Join our local sluggers and sports radio personalities at SF Giants Fan Fest for a free day of baseball fun at AT&T Park
