Are you ready for summer yet? We hope so, because the latest festival has just been announced. We rounded up news of the show as well as this week’s other buzzy stories, from a happy goat to a record breaking local band to (duh) The Cat Circus currently running in San Francisco.
Sometimes, you don’t get to choose who your best friends are. So when a goat was saved from a Southern California hoarder and relocated to Vacaville without his bestie Jellybean the Donkey, he was quite distressed. According to KPIX, the animal went on a hunger strike until his owner brought his best friend up to Vacaville to reunite them.
Summer Splash has officially been announced for August 16 at California’s Great America, and (so far) includes MAGIC!, Cher Lloyd, and Becky G. Stay tuned for more announcements!
According to Billboard and SoundScan reports, Metallica’s The Black Album has officially sold more album copies than any other album in the last quarter century. That’s quite a feat for anyone, let alone a band who calls the Bay Area home!
Oh boy, dreams do come true. A Cat Circus is currently running through this weekend at a theater in San Francisco’s Fort Mason, and tickets to it will set you back less than a Giants game. Its main objective seems to advocate for the welfare and safety of cats, which is definitely a cause we can get behind. Can’t believe what you’re reading? There’s a video to prove it.
HBO’s hit show ‘True Detective’ is reportedly coming to California to film its second season, but hasn’t given any specifics other than that it won’t be filmed in Los Angeles. There are plenty of desolate locales that would be perfect settings for the show, but we rounded up some of our favorites that are local—including some of our very own towns with their own sordid histories.
