Slow Food Rocks In August

Just in case you thought there weren't already enough festivals in the area this summer, the same folks who brought you a public garden outside of City Hall have got a treat for you. Slow Food Rocks takes place the last weekend in August, and will feature Gnarls Barkley, Ozomatli, The New Pornographers, Medeski Martin and Wood,Phil Lesh & Friends, G Love & Special Sauce and John Butler Trio. Seems like an odd mix of indie and hippie crowds to us, but hey kids - everyone loves slow food! Tickets are $60 a day. Yes, you read that correctly. We don't mean to be snarky (wait, actually, we do), but couldn't a festival that's all about food focus on exactly that? Argh.

So in a span of five weeks, you'll be able to go to Outside Lands, Slow Food Rocks and Treasure Island and you'll only have to drop $460 for those 7 days of music. Great...

I don't know about you, but I'll just go see someone at the Bottom of the Hill instead. Or maybe go to that just-announced and free Rock Make Street Festival. (I have no affiliation; I just think it's worth bringing up.)
