Seek the Booty: The Treasure Island Music Festival is one of the Bay Area's best live music events, and to celebrate its fifth anniversary, this year's lineup is a doozy -- a collection of some of the greatest artists working in the worlds of electronica and indie rock. Here are some of the acts we're especially looking forward to.


Geographer: What a beautiful way to start the day. This San Francisco-based trio makes low-key but gorgeous, emotionally driven songs that somehow always have a sense of urgency in the background (check out the Animal Shapes EP if you don't believe us). If you have an overwhelming desire to hear a synthesizer and a cello at the same time, or if you're having a personal crisis you need to dance your way through, don't miss these up-and-comers. Noon, Bridge stage

Sizzle & Fizzle: Highs and lows from the last week in S.F. music.

Also, we recommend shows from High Castle, Ray Manzarek and Roy Rogers, Heidi, and Van Hunt.
