Classrooms at schools and universities across the Bay Area are coming back to life, a milestone that signals that the end of summer is near. Whether you're a student in the honeymoon first week or a nine-to-fiver working for the weekend, it's time to make the most out the last few weeks of the season. Start tonight with the debut of Photobooth, a new space in the Mission dedicated to all things photo. Three rare Bay Area performances by Sade provide the perfect opportunity to seal the deal on a summertime fling and Rock the Bells offers 90s classics from members of Wu Tang, Cypress Hill, Lauryn Hill and more (listen to our playlist HERE). Speakeasy brewery celebrates 14 years in the biz with Butchertown Hoedown and the Fair Trade Bazaar brings a unique international shopping opportunity the de Young. Blow Up is back in a big way with the Blow Up Forever party and Japantown welcomes the masses for the J-Pop Festival, one of that neighborhood's biggest bashes of the year.

Congrats to Rod Branch! He was the luck winner of 2 tickets to the BoneHead BBQ Stone Temple Pilots Contest on SF Station Deals!
