Shucking and Jiving



    As I told you earlier this week, this weekend is chockful of goodness. At the Casbah, Japandroids will play to a sold-out crowd, but if you didn't grab tickets, there's still some aural deliciousness to be had. During the day, the third annual Oysterfest returns to Embarcadero Marina Park North, with a diverse lineup that covers all bases, with the Silent Comedy and Little Hurricane for the rock set, while Iration and Vokab Company mix it up with reggae and rap and rock and everything in between. Late at night, you can take an adventure to the east side as the Creepy Creeps are sure to make the walls sweat with a show at the Tower Bar.
