James & Evander, San Francisco Rock Project added to 20th Street Block Party lineup

We’re doing it up big next month when we celebrate SF’s greatest neighborhood (we might be biased) with the 20th Street Block Party! Together with the Bon Vivants, Nomic and Ne TImeas Restaurant Group, we’re transforming the 20th Street corridor between Harrison and Bryant into a free music and food festival that has it all.

We’ve just added James & Evander and San Francisco Rock Project to a lineup that already includes Two Gallants, Mac DeMarco and Quinn Deveaux & The Blue Beat Review. Food and festivities will be handled by a slew of locals like Blowfish Sushi, Sightglass, Central Kitchen and Rhea’s Deli and Coffee Bar. There will be an interactive comedy and performing arts spectacle by Z Space. It’s going to truly be a party for the people, so we hope to see all your beautiful faces on August 24th!
