No News is Bad News. Join the SA Current Press Club.


Once you get over the odd fact that March Madness actually culminates in the first week of April, the notion of SA hosting the Final Four is pretty awesome. Rabid partisans will surely spend this weekend debating the relative skills of UCLA super frosh Kevin Love and Memphis senior powerhouse Joey Dorsey, leaving the rest of us free to ponder the Final Four Big Dance, with four days of wildly eclectic, free musical offerings downtown, on South Alamo Street, between Market and Durango.

The Friday Block Party kicks off at 6 p.m. with pop-rock band Ludo setting the stage for Philly hip-hop veterans The Roots and irreverent rockers Fall Out Boy. Saturday’s Pontiac Garage opens with a noon set from Puddle of Mudd, followed by performances from Kid Rock and Meridianwest. Sunday’s show includes early sets by local heroes Sexto Sol and Ruben V, leading up to All American Rejects and 3 Doors Down, while the Texas theme continues on Monday with The Krayolas, Bob Schneider, Robert Earl Keen, and Mingo Fishtrap building anticipation for the NCAA Championship Game. While we’d love to see ?uestlove vs. Pete Wentz in a three-point-shooting contest, we’ll take what we can get.
