SF Station
There's so much going on this week, it's a little hard to believe San Francisco can handle it all. Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, an event that usually pulls more than half a million people to Golden Gate Park, continues three-days strong starting at 10am Friday morning. On the other side of town, the waterfront will be clogged with the usual masses that turn out for Fleet Week and the Blue Angels air show. The playa hangovers are gone and burners are back in action for Decompression Heat the Street Faire and the Italian Heritage Parade continues for its 144th year, starting in North Beach. The popular Pancakes and Booze Art Show is back for two more days, Mix Master Mike works the decks at Low End Theory and the Dead Kennedys keep SF's punk roots alive.
