Download: Live This Fall: a special audio guide through SF Bay Area concerts this fall (Podcast #312)

This special bonus episode of our podcast surveys some of the many noteworthy concerts taking place in San Francisco this fall. It’s produced in conjunction with KQED Arts‘ upcoming Fall Arts Guide, which will offer a complete preview of upcoming highlights from the Bay Area arts world.

In this episode, Ben, Christian, and Jason offer some individual picks for must-see shows in the months ahead, alongside songs from the artists discussed. Along the way, we chat about the undeniable appeal of Thee Oh Sees‘ live shows, the emergence of music festivals outside of San Francisco proper, and much more. Obviously, this mix only scratches the surface of the variety of great shows headed our way in the coming months, but it’s full of events worth seeking out.

Enjoy the podcast and then go see some concerts!
