mcmf_poster.jpg is proud to sponsor the official closing day party for the Mission Creek Music and Arts Festival. The party features five great local bands that you’ve either already heard or are sure to hear in the future on The Bay Bridged podcast, plus food, drinks, and more!

We’ve been tight-lipped about the names, until now:

The Bay Bridged and The Mission Creek Music and Arts Festival Present:

The Old-Fashioned Way
Miguel Z. (of The Harbours)
Birds & Batteries

Sunday, May 20th
Thee Parkside (1600 17th St at Wisconsin)
FREE!!! All Ages!!!

About the bands:

Pillows: Saw them Monday night and already excited to see them again. Folk-rock duo’s vocal harmonies and tight minimal instrumentation make for great uptempo numbers and ballads alike. Listen to their feature show here.

The Old-Fashioned Way: A live favorite for their rocking songs and multi-instrument pop attack. You can here them in our February 2007 Mix.

Miguel Z. (of The Harbours): The multi-talented singer-songwriter behind The Harbours, who we recently featured here. Excellent retro-influenced rock with great pop melodies.

Birds & Batteries: A mixture of electronics and more traditional rock influences soon to release a anticipated new album. There’s a feature show that will be aired in the upcoming weeks, but we’ve also included them in our January 2007 Mix

Merch: experimental pop music with cello and banjo and other nice ingredients.

Food and Drink Specials!

There will be cheap BBQ and drink specials too, including $2.50 Speakeasy beers and $2 well vodka drinks—so grab a burger and a Big Daddy or Bloody Mary and have a great Sunday afternoon of live local music. Plus free snacks provided by Trader Joe’s!

Whether you’re looking for a cooling-down place after Bay to Breakers, or just looking to get a drink and some food before one of the excellent Sunday evening Mission Creek shows, this will be a really fun time!

We’ll see you on Sunday!
