Summer hurrahs

In our next issue (Aug. 19), you’ll notice our “On Tour” section requires an entire page and then some. The upswing in shows reflects the end of summer and start of HSU’s new semester – all those new students to entice out. Or something like that.

Do not despair, though, because it’s not too late for one more mini-vacation road trip. For the first time ever, SF’s Golden Gate Park is the site of a massive – and massively cool – music fest: Outside Lands. So call your friends in the City and make your sleeping arrangements. Who’s playing? Who isn’t?! Check it:
