This is the name of a giant music festival that will be held in San Francisco this weekend. It features bluegrass, country, blues, and other folky sounds. The weather will be lovely, and all of the music is free. I think I might go.
Some of you readers probably just snorted your beverage through your nose. My disdain for all music "folk" is barely contained. But... Friday afternoon Robert Plant & Alison Krauss will be performing. Ms. Krauss captured my eardrums with her lyric rendition of Down to the River to Pray on the O Brother, where art thou? soundtrack. Plus, it should be entertaining to hear her paired with Mr. Plant. As long as they don't sing Immigrant Song.
The crowds will be intense, so I doubt I'll stay for a long time. Though it might be worth it, just to check out MC Hammer or Nick Lowe.
