Headlining the August 17 event will be Hot Flash Heat Wave on Fulton Street and Caribbean All Stars in Civic Center Plaza. UN Plaza will feature a variety of performances and activities celebrating San Francisco’s dynamic literary scene – including a spatial audio listening space, Music to Read By by Christopher Willits, who will be performing selections of his own catalog of ambient music and other beautiful classics. Other activities include Giant Scrabble hosted by 826 Valencia, a pop-up book store by City Lights and much more.

The Commons on 3rd Thursdays is a public-private partnership between the City of San Francisco, Another Planet Entertainment, Off the Grid, Noise Pop, and the Civic Center Community Benefit District.  The event series grew out of the Civic Center Commons initiative, a strategic effort led by the City of San Francisco and community partners to transform daily experiences in these public spaces and create a unified, inclusive civic “commons”.  As part of the overall effort, visitors to the area will also see an Exploratorium sound installation in UN Plaza, an outdoor art gallery next to the Asian Art Museum, a pop-up playground in Civic Center Plaza, and a new yarn wrapping installation on trees throughout the area.  

“When our residents can share some great food with a friend or dance along with a neighbor, they are coming together to create a stronger, closer community,” said Mayor Edwin M. Lee. “These vibrant events reflect our commitment to make the Civic Center Commons safe, welcoming places for our families, visitors and workers.”

The first 3rd Thursdays event on July 20 featured musically diverse performances by Sal’s Greenhouse, Xiomara and Sandor y su Mecanica Salsa Band and activities including bocce ball and music themed crafts by WorkshopSF. Additional events are scheduled for September 21 and October 19, with oMega Love and Stompy Jones already scheduled to headline performances these nights.
