Weekly Wooot - Treasure Island + Fuck Buju Banton

Epicsauce has teamed up with the excellent San Francisco blog SFist -- each week we provide SFist readers with a preview of the upcoming week in music.

All eyes this week are on Treasure Island, and rightfully so – with Dave Mathews, Grizzly Bear, Dan Deacon, Girl Talk, Passion Pit, MSTRKRFT, Flaming Lips, MGMT, Yo La Tengo, The Walkmen and more this one is not to be missed. Be sure to head out early each day to support local acts Sleepy Sun, Thao With the Get Down Stay Down, The Limousines, Crown City Rockers and Murs.

While the Treasure Island lineup offers a lot of bang for your buck, there are still plenty of options this week for the cash strapped with electropop duo the Junior Boys hosting a Halloween costume party (seriously) at Mezzanine Tuesday, recently reformed alt-rock gods The Jesus Lizard at The Fillmore Saturday and epicsauce local favorites Casy & Brian / Boyz IV Men at The Knockout Sunday. Plenty of more show options throughout the week, so be sure to check the showlist.

Note: Notoriously homophobic reggae artist Buju Banton is scheduled to play The Rockit Room tonight. We encourage SFist/epicsauce readers to boycott this show, and hope that The Rockit Room follows the lead of other Bay Area venues and promoters in canceling this and further Buju Banton appearances.
