Quicksand @ Webster Hall recently (more by Rebecca Reed) Quicksand

We get a lot of great free shows here in NYC (like The Walkmen and Solange as part of Northside this weekend) but we have to admit this week of free all-ages shows Converse has lined up at San Francisco club Slim's later this month is pretty crazy (though they may be pretty hard to get into). We'd happily spend the whole week there if we could. The line-ups are:

Converse Represent series in San Francisco

Jun 23 - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, DIIV, Metz, Tamaryn, The She's

JUN 24 -Deltron 3030, Juicy J, Blackalicious, Angel Haze, Special Guest

JUN 25 - Hot Chip, Tycho, Blackbird Blackbird, Social Studies

JUN 26 - Quicksand, Mastodon, High On Fire, Saviours, Hot Lunch

JUN 27 - Suicidal Tendencies, Rocket From The Crypt, Ceremony, Special Guests

The only way to go is to fill out the entry form before June 18 and "winning ticket holders will be notified via email soon after with instructions on how and when to retrieve their tickets." All events, "which lead up to the grand opening of the Converse San Francisco retail store on June 28", will take place at Slim's in San Francisco.

Meanwhile, for those in the Five Boroughs (and surrounding area) browse our NYC show calendar for more upcoming free shows.

why are we now getting posts about shows 3000 miles away?

There are shows all over the place. Are we going to have to read all about everything happening all over the place now? BV, stick to shows people here can actually go to.

Too bad Slim's is one of the worst venues in SF. Still, would be amazing seeing some of these acts in a space that small.

I bought this album "Slip," back in '93 when it came out. Listening to this brings back memories. I haven't listened to this song for YEARS. Man, was that really 20 fucking years ago already. Holy shit.
