Hardly Strictly Bluegrass is over, so you'll need to pony up at a local venue for a ticket to see the finest live music in the city.
Here's our roundup of five of the hottest upcoming concerts in San Francisco that still have tickets available, including both classic groups and fresh new acts.
Wednesday, Oct. 11
The East Coast indie rock/alt-country band, which has had a string of popular albums in recent years, has been on a multi-month cross-country tour.
They'll be playing at Slim's at 8pm on Wednesday night. The show is sold out, but StubHub has general admission tickets starting at around $30.
Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley
The youngest son of Bob Marley is touring in support of Stony Hill, his first new full-length album in a decade. Top emerging reggae artist Kabaka Pyramid will open.
The Fillmore show, which starts at 8pm, has mostly sold out, but SeatGeek has some tickets left, starting around $100.
Friday, Oct. 13
Tenelle and special guest Kristine Mirelle ft. Drew Allen
LA-based Tenelle Christine Luafalemana has been developing her own style of contemporary R&B, with lots of crossover into modern and Pacific reggae. Mirelle, a "classical pianist with a retro-soul sound," will open.
Bruno's will play host to her 9pm show on Friday, with tickets going for $20.
SF Symphony Plays Czech Masters
Guest conductor Jakub Hrůša will lead the SF Symphony through the works of top Czech composers, including Dvorak, Smetana and Janacek. [Full disclosure: the Symphony is a Hoodline advertiser.]
The Friday and Saturday shows start at 8pm at Davies Symphony Hall, followed by a Sunday matinee at 2pm. Tickets are normally $35, but Goldstar has them for $20.
Sunday, Oct. 15
George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic
The co-creators of the modern funk genre continue to headline sell-out tours, even as their decades of music get widely sampled across genres today.
They're in town at The Independent on both Sunday and Monday at 8pm. But tickets are scarce at this point, and will cost you at least $100 on StubHub.
