This year’s community celebration offers a diverse array of musical tastes as well as local performers from both the Bay Area and across the West Coast. Headliners include Portland-based Y La Bamba, and SF’s very own Con Brio.
Additional performers include L.A. Witch, French Cassettes, Same Girls, King Isis, LOUDA Y Los Bad Hombres, and Strange Cities. The full music lineup is available online at 20thstreetblockparty.com.
“After a year off, we’re so stoked to bring back the 20th Street Block Party along with some old and new Noise Pop friends! From the sunny, rhythmic sounds of Y La Bamba and Con Brio to the classic headbangin’ rock’n’roll from L.A. Witch and Same Girls, we can’t wait to share a dance with everyone once again in the neighborhood. Guaranteed fun times ahead,” said Talent Buyer James Lopez.READ MORE: Secretary of State Approves Sonoma County’s Voter’s Choice Election Model
