    You forgot Vienna Teng at Palace of Fine Arts on May 10th. Chamber Folk at it’s best…Plus she is a local girl who is making it bigger.

    Great list of shows. Spring seems to bring a lot of them here and I’m betting some big ones will keep on coming through the summer. I know the True Colors tour is in June and Rock the Bells festival will be in August, just for starters on the festival stuff. For smaller shows, San Fran Voice does a list every Monday of what’s playing here throughout the upcoming week.
