In conjunction with 21 Grand's 7th anniversary celebration, the 7th
annual Transbay Skronkathon BBQ is an all-day marathon music and BBQ
extravaganza. Admission is free, but we'll pass the hat for the
benefit of the Transbay Creative Music Calendar. We'll have a couple
of charcoal grills out in the alleyway for your gustatory pleasure
(BRING STUFF TO GRILL!) and a double load of the Bay Area's best
creative musicians inside for your listening pleasure.

If you are unable to attend, you can listen to a live internet stream,
provided by sfSoundRadio.
