Peter Hook and the Light @ The Warfield

BFD: Blink-182, The War on Drugs, Mt. Eddy and more @ Concord Pavilion
BFD is a Bay Area yearly tradition hosted by ALT 105.3 (formerly Live 105). A bit different from previous years, this year’s event will take place in the Concord Pavilion (instead of Shoreline as in previous years) with Blink-182 and 11 other bands taking the stage. Oakland’s Mt. Eddy will be opening the show. — Dariush Azmoudeh

Ezra Furman @ The Independent
Playing what we’re pretty sure is his biggest local stage to date, musician (and now author) Ezra Furman brings his new-old band the Visions to San Francisco as he winds down a national tour. — Jody Amable
