Superchunk-I-Hate-Music

…But You Will Love This

Add one more to the long list of ’90s bands who are releasing new music in the 2010s.

Treasure Island Music Festival 2010

October 22nd, 2010

As day one of the 2010 Treasure Island Music Festival began, the sun was out with a few clouds and the buses started rolling out on a very scenic ride from the parking lot of AT&T park while the festival staff did a great job of shipping everyone in and out in a timely manner. From the festival grounds, Treasure Island has a breath-taking view of the San Francisco Bay, Bay Bridge, San Francisco skyline, and even the Golden Gate Bridge off in the distance. The Tunnel stage is set against the bay backdrop along with the lit up Ferris Wheel and glowing vinyl palm trees with The Bridge stage as the main stage.
