The 10th Annual Transbay Skronkathon BBQ

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 passel 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.

It's a great day to hang out in the sun (cross fingers), chill with a lot of musical people and hear a whole lot of extremely unusual music.

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
