The Bay Area is bursting with amazing events for you to partake in. Nothing says San Francisco like live music. And boy is there a lot of it! Here are three tasty treats to get you off the couch and into the groove. After all, your pals at RushTix have your back.

Al Jardine
Sun 4/8/18 @ The Chapel, San Francisco
Al Jardine has been making sweet tunes for generations. This legendary co-founder of the Beach Boys knows how to enthrall a hungry crowd. After so many years making beautiful music, he’s set to put on the very first show of its kind. With music, photos, and video, Al will tell the story of his truly unique journey. He will be joined by his son Matt, who is an accomplished performer in his own right. This is what we call a once-in-a-lifetime event, my friends. Beach boy fans—and fans of classic tunes—will not forget it.

Noise Pop: Marlon Williams

A time when music was about love, passion, and that special someone. His debut album won him countless fans. Now his sophomore Make Way For Love is winning over critics and legions of newcomers.

Shin-ichi Fukuda
