Chelsea and I love music and are always out in the city checking out shows.  Portugal. the Man is one of our favorites so of course we were not going to miss the chance to see them play at a small venue (the Mezzanine) in San Francisco.  On top of Portugal. the Man, three other fantastic bands played as well.  Churches, the NONONO, and the Colourist were the other acts of the night and the house was packed.

Well the most wonderful time of the musical year came and went this past weekend.  It was awesome to have three jammed pack nights of top billboard artist musical performances.  The first night (Not So Silent Night Pre-Show) was on Thursday night at the Mezzanine in downtown San Francisco.  Walk the Moon, Atlas Genius, and Foster the People were the bands to kick off the three nights of musical bliss.  Here are some photos and you can see more on Live105.com.  Were any of you there?

Mark Foster from Foster the People continued on into the late night with a dj set.  I went home to catch some sleep before another big two days of shows.  This was an awesome opener to two more awesome days of shows.  Sometimes our work does not suck.  Did any of you make it to Not So Silent Night this weekend??
