Melissa’s Mix Tape: A Guide to Coming Attractions

Album releases and tour schedules always seem to slow during the winter. Now that we’re approaching March, new records are on the shelves and bands are hitting the road, many with a stop in San Francisco. This mixtape functions as a guide of sorts, highlighting some of the best shows coming to town by artists that definitely deserve some attention. The artists are all over the map in terms of fame and genre. The list starts after Noise Pop takes over the City from February 23 – March 1, so you should have time to get tickets (not included but super awesome/hysterical – Brian McKnight at the Fox on February 26 – “every time I think my work is doneeeeee…). Get out there and see some live music.
