It's the gazillionth annual Transbay Skronkathon, moved to Saturday and starting a little later.

The annual Transbay Skronkathon BBQ is an all-day marathon music and BBQ
extravaganza. Admission is free, but we'll pass the hat for the benefit
of the Transbay Creative Music Calendar. We'll have a couple of charcoal
grills out in the alleyway for your food-searing pleasure (BRING STUFF
TO GRILL!) and a huge roster of the Bay Area's best creative musicians
inside for your listening pleasure.

The Transbay Creative Music Calendar is a newsletter devoted to
experimental music in the Bay Area. Published monthly, it's four to
six pages of lively coverage, including features, artistic rants,
reviews and announcements of music so far out that you won't hear
about it anywhere else. It's available free at many local music venues
and independent record stores, and is mailed free of charge to anyone
interested enough to subscribe. The entire contents are also available
over the world-wide web at
