There’s plenty of great live music around the Bay this weekend:

(((folkYEAH!)))’s Spring Festival 2007 in Big Sur has excellent bands playing all weekend long, with shows at the Fernwood Resort on Friday and Saturday and a free show at the Henry Miller Library on Sunday. We previewed the festival last week, with a video feature on Howlin’ Rain, who will be playing on Friday night. All of the set times and ticket information can be found here.

Friday kicks off early with Afternoon Delight, a great new series of free early Friday evening shows which we previewed yesterday. It should be a blast and we’re quite looking forward to once again catching The Lovely Public.

That night, From Monument to Masses headlines over at Bottom of the Hill, a show we wrote about on Monday. The show starts at 9:30pm and you should show up early to catch And a Few to Break and Silian Rail.

Alternatively, you can catch The Heavenly States and Social Studies (see their feature episode at the top of this post) with The San Antonio Kid & His Bootleggers at the Hemlock Tavern. We included The Heavenly States in our first mix show, previewing last year’s South by Southwest festival. The band has recently been recording new material for the follow-up to 2005’s Black Comet, having achieved significant acclaim in the interim for Borderline, the film documenting their experiences as the first American rock band to play public shows in Libya since the travel embargo was lifted.
