Until the 2005 festival begins, you can also hear bluegrass and old-time music many Thursdays from 8-10pm at the Atlas Cafe, Sundays from 4-6pm at the The Music Store (half a block from the West Portal Muni station in SF), and at venues like The Plough & Stars, and the Amnesia on Mondays (Valencia near 18th).
Check the online calendar of the Northern California Bluegrass Society, where you can find bluegrass or old-time music somewhere in or near San Francisco every night of the week. Or check out Yahoo groups SF Bluegrass, Oldtimes SF, Old-time jam, and SF Novice Bluegrass, for players and fans of bluegrass and old-time in San Francisco.
