Since it didn't, you're just going to have to settle for this blog post. It's MGMT, Jimmy Eat World, Surfer Blood, The Sounds and Dead Country all set to perform for FREE, on the beach, Thursday through Saturday, August 4 to 6. It's not exactly Weezer (last year's headlinging act)--but hey, we'll take it.

Thursday, August 4 4:30-6:30pm The Sounds featured with Walk The Walk

Friday, August 5 4:30-6:30pm Jimmy Eat World preceded by Dead Country

Saturday, August 6 4:30-6:30pm MGMT preceded by Surfer Blood

considering MGMT's closest show to So Cal this summer was $50 +, and sold out in 20 minutes.... this is very exciting news.

get there early. Like a sardine can last year for Weezer. Also, recommend biking into the area.

Looking forward to seeing MGMT for the first time. Recent album is great.

Yes, the traffic and parking will be an absolute nightmare and be careful of the douchebags. They are everywhere.

be careful of the douchebags. They are everywhere.

An unbelievable amount of truth behind this statement.

if you want a spot within a mile of the pier you better get there around 7am. this will never be worth going to, no matter how free it is.

HB is tolerable during the winter, that's about it.

HB main street really isn't the place to hang out (see mention of douchebags above). But I'm thinking about biking to this. If it's that horrible i'll leave.

Don't misinterpret our negativity. It will probably be a blast, but one . .. i won't be around anyway and two . . . It will take effort and patience.

I grew up in HB (now living in SF) and went down this past weekend to visit the folks who still live downtown. Even though it was just the juniors surfing and day 1-2 of the event, the place was really busy. All I can say to folks who come and visit from out of town is beware of the aggro police presence. When the ASP comes to SF this year, beer and smoking whatever on the beach will likely be the norm and tolerated by SFPD. But no way does that shit fly in HB. If you get popped with an open container or trying to sneak a puff, be ready for a hefty ticket or even a possible arrest. Saw a lot of idiots down there without a clue and the juiced up police force won't have it.

Yeah, last year I saw cops asking for random people's sports drink containers so they could sniff them for booze. Fucking pigs. Better just to go to the bars on Main St.

Stoked for you guys and the Ocean Beach ASP stop up there. Hopefully the surf is on.

looks like they are branching out with the Austalian Open too. Should be a success. If there are two things Aussie enjoy (i.e. surfing and partying).
