2nd Annual Transbay Skronkathon BBQ!

Summer is here. So why don't you get away from that West-Bay Fog, come over to sunny Berkeley and join us to hear dozens of the Bay Area's best-known practitioners of adventurous, improvised, non-standard music. We will have plenty of charcoal on hand, so bring a slab of meat or any other items for yourself or others to consume, get food poisoning, and listen to some damn-fine music!

Brought to you by ACME and by the Transbay Calendar, this FREE event was a ton of fun last year.

Expect this year to be even better. Hope to see you there!
