ULUV SF Music Day

ULUV comes on to the SF music scene with a "Boom!!! Shake-shake-shake the room!!! Tic-tic-tic-tic boom!!!"
On Saturday ULUV hosted hundreds of musicians on approximately 20 stages across SF. Many of my friends were playing and I had intended to see them all ... but I fell in love with what was happening on the street corner in front of The Mill on Divisadero. Though I had intended to see a few stages ... one stage, hosted by Jenna Lavoie was featuring a ton of my Balance Breakfast friends. (Of whom I had wanted to see.) So what was going to be 1 or 2 hours of my day became 12 ... and I spent the entire day celebrating ULUV Music Day.
Here are some links to the bands I saw live:

ABOUT ULUV Music Day
It is a connected set of free, public music events which takes place each year in parklets, parks, Bart Stations and other public spaces on the 21st of June to celebrate music and the people who create it. FULL SCHEDULE BELOW and at http://uluvmusic.com/music-day/
In addition, a FLASH MOB Music Performance open to all musicians will take place in Mission Dolores Park @6pm. The mass of musicians will perform a song together showing the strength and solidarity of the BAY AREA MUSIC COMMUNITY.
