The sun is finally starting to sizzle, and the full moon is rising, so get out and enjoy the warm glory - summer has arrived! Take advantage of one of the few nights of the year where one layer of clothing will likely do the job and head to McLaren Park for the Full Moon Celebration. If that sounds a little too chill, dive into the overheated pit at Bad Brains or join the crowd in front of the Warfield vying for tickets to Bob Dylan, available only for cash at the box office the day of the show. Cool off down by the bay at the Parlor with $1 drinks at Bartab Triple Launch Party or take a spin out by the park with the Bay Bombers Professional Roller Derby crew. Watch the thermostat rise in Oakland with the Chemical Brothers and the Real Food Festival, or keep it cool in SF at Slaone's 1-year Anniversary and the Mark Farina Geograffti EP Tour.
