55 Acts to See This Week

Tech N9ne, The xx, Simple Plan, 21 Savage, Hot Chip, and more are coming to the Bay!

Pretty much every genre is well-represented in this week’s offerings of Bay Area shows. Rock — be it indie, alt, or pop — is particularly heavy this week, with bands like A Perfect Circle, Bleached, Hinds, Twin Peaks, and Simple Plan playing shows.

If you like reggae, both Rebel Souljahz and Toots & the Maytals are coming to the Bay, and Latin acts, like Los Rakas and Alex Cuba, are also playing gigs.

There’s also a ton of random artists on the list this week, too. Vanessa Carlton plays tonight (Monday) at the Fillmore, Hot Chip is doing a DJ set at Public Works, and Tech N9ne is celebrating the UC Theatre’s 1-year anniversary on Tuesday.
