“Return to the thought to the concert where music flared,” said author Deborah Garrison. Music is the way people get out of their messy headspaces and release all of the negative energy out into space. Music has been around for over 50,000 years and the experience to watch live music is an opportunity of a lifetime. Luckily, in September, many different people and different genres are performed in the Bay Area. Some of the genres include rap, pop and almost everything in between.Some of the rap and r&b artists who will be performing in the Bay Area in the month of September are Shoreline Mafia, J. Cole, and Chief Keef. Shoreline Mafia will be performing in San Francisco’s Regency Ballroom on Sept. 8 and the tickets range from $25 to $60. In September, J. Cole will be on his KOD tour and will be in Sacramento on Sept. 4. Along with Cole, Chief Keef will be performing in Sacramento on Oct. 3. All of these concerts will be inexpensive treats for audiences.
In the Bay Area, there will also be some symphony and opera events in September. To see these shows, opera and symphony-goers can go to the Green Music Center or the Opera House in San Francisco. Each of these locations have weekly events and offer a wide selection of shows. Any event at these two locations will be outstanding and will provide an inspirational experience for all who decide to come.
