2012 has been an incredible year of Bonfire Sessions: We’ve seen the Sessions grow from three events in 2011 to five this year. We started off last March in Austin, TX during SXSW, followed by our daytime pool party at Coachella in April. From there we paid a vist to our friends up North with our Toronto Bonfire Sessions during NXNE in June and then brought it home to the birthplace of JanSport and the Bonfire Sessions in Seattle just a few weeks ago at the end of August. The Bonfire Sessions are, of course, nothing without the bands that play them and this year included memorable sets from White Denim, Fly Golden Eagle, Strange Boys, Bear Hands, Crystal Antlers, Bleached, Fidlar, Smith Westerns, Dusted, Tacocat, Seapony, and Fruit Bats.
We’re finishing up this year right here in our backyard: San Francisco. The 5th and final Bonfire Sessions of 2012 will be held on Sunday, September 30th on Treasure Island and this time around we’ve truly out done ourselves: the show fill feature sets from local favorites the Dodos and Geographer, up and comers White Fence, and all capped off with a special solo performance from Jay Tillman of Father John Misty. You will NOT want to miss this one!
On top of a festival-worthy lineup, the San Francisco Bonfire Sessions will, of course, feature the requisite bonfire, s’mores, JanSport swag, free food, free beer, and free good vibes.
Just like our other Bonfire Sessions this year, if you would like to attend, you will need to RSVP HERE. Space at this event will be limited and demand will be high: you will want to follow the attendance instructions closely and arrive early to ensure your place in line.
See you next week!
