Knowing you’ll wish the music never ends, San Francisco’s Treasure Island Music Festival has slotted a few club gigs to keep the beat going far into the night.
Presented by Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment, the annual blowout on San Francisco Bay’s Treasure Island takes place Oct. 16-17 with the first day dedicated to dance / electronic acts while day No. 2 is dedicated to indie artists.
Now organizers have slotted gigs at San Francisco nightclub The Independent, giving festivalgoers the opportunity to keep on rockin’ but in a more intimate environment.
The club shows start Thursday, Oct. 14 with Dan Black. Die Antwoord appears Friday night while Bay Area band Rogue Wave appears Saturday evening.

“Many of the acts performing at Treasure Island grew up playing small venues and clubs around the world,” Another Planet Entertainment’s Bryan Duquette said. “The night shows provide an opportunity to see these acts in a more intimate environment which brings the artists and fans back to where it all began.”
Regarding the Rogue Wave gig, festival co-sponsor Verizon will conduct a contest giving away tickets to the club show as well as ducats for the festival via the company’s Twitter page. Click here for more information.

This year’s festival features LCD Soundsystem, Deadmau5, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Miike Snow, !!!, Die Antwoord, Little Dragon, Four Tet, Holy Fuck, Phantogram, Jamaica, Wallpaper and Maus Haus on the first day while Belle & Sebastian, The National, Broken Social Scene, She & Him, Superchunk, Rogue Wave, Surfer Blood, Ra Ra Riot, Monotonix, The Sea & Cake, Phosphorescent, Papercuts and The Mumlers appear on the second.

One of Treasure Island’s selling points is that the festival rotates the music on two stages, meaning there’s never an overlap resulting in situations where you have to choose seeing one act over another.
Tickets for the night shows at The Independent go on sale Sept. 17 at high noon California time. For more information, click here for the Treasure Island Music Festival website and here for The Independent’s website.
