A free outdoor concert with the San Francisco Symphony. A Lake Merritt barbecue that aims to help fight racism. A film festival featuring only Godzilla flicks.

We’ll also consider the state of the Bay Area arts scene--how artists survive amid the high cost of living, and what the trend toward corporate ownership of live music venues means for local musicians. And we want to hear from you: What shows and events are you excited for this summer?
