The Noise Pop-produced 20th Street Block Party is back this September for a third year of bands, food, drinks, and fun. The free event’s lineup of music on two stages is once again packed with Bay Bridged favorites, with headliners Thao & The Get Down Stay Down (in what is billed as “their last SF show until 2016”) and returning former local Nick Waterhouse. They’ll be joined by the rejuvenated Dominant Legs, much buzzed-about singer-songwriter Andrew St. James, Fine Points, No Vacation, and the San Francisco Rock Project. Add to that what’s sure to be a well-curated set of food and drink offerings and you’ve got the makings of a great day.

It’s all going down on Saturday, September 12, from noon to 6pm on 20th Street between Harrison and Bryant Streets. Admission is, once again, free, but VIP tickets are also available now.
