Angel Island

Music at Cove Cantina

Angel Island presents Live Music at the Cove Cantina, with performances running all summer long. Take the ferry from Tiburon or San Francisco and explore the myriad hiking trails and spectacular views Angel Island has to offer before enjoying some food and music at the Cove Cantina. This coming weekend features Parts & Labor, a smokin’ mix of rockabilly, surf, classic R&B, soul and oldies. The members of the band have spent years honing their chops backing an astonishing list of top headliners, and derive their name from their constant work in the rehearsal studio, creating new sounds and exploring riffs for each band member. They call it “a labor of love.” Parts & Labor plays at the Cove Cantina in Angel Island State Park Aayla Cove, Tiburon. Saturday, July 9. 2pm-4:30pm. Free. www.angelisland.com
