Public Works SF: Public Works SF will host two musical events this week that are worth checking out. On Thursday, August 31, they will host a listening party for “American Dream,” the new album from the recently reformed LCD Soundsystem. On Friday, September 1, you can party like it’s 1999 at the TLC vs. Destiny’s Child Night. So whether you’re a member of the Beyhive that has chased a waterfall or two, or are just good old-fashioned North American Scum, they’ve got you covered. Take Caltrain to Millbrae, switch to BART, and Public Works is just a short walk from the 16th & Mission Station.
Nickelback at the Shoreline: The musical world has been haunted by a mystery for well over a decade; who likes Nickelback? No one (besides my freshman roommate) will cop to being a fan of the band that has none the less sold more than 50 million albums, but their Feed the Machine Tour takes them to the Shoreline Amphitheatre this Sunday, September 3. As such, if you’re a fan that doesn’t want to be outed by someone checking license plates in the parking lot, take Caltrain to Mountain View, and then take the Mountain View Community Shuttle to Shoreline and your secret is safe with us.
Dumbarton Study Public Comment: SamTrans is soliciting public comment on the Dumbarton Corridor Study through September 29. This week, the plan will be presented to the SamTrans Citizens Advisory Committee on Wednesday, August 30, at 6:30 p.m. (just a block from the San Carlos Caltrain Station). More information can be found about upcoming meetings and how to submit comments here, so take the opportunity to learn about how this important project could change how we traverse the San Francisco Bay.
