Since then, it has grown in to a fundraiser for non-profit community radio station KPFT 90.1 Pacifica Radio.

This year the featured performers will be David Fahl, Blue Threads, One Eyed Doll, Opie Hendrix, Los Vertigos, Charels and the 10%, PLUMP, Live Oak Decline, the Hightailers and Potroast. The diverse line up alone will attract a wondrous and varied clientele.
