  1. […] — I don’t remember the band, but thankfully @eliz_beth does — it was The Foo Fighters.  I don’t think I went, and I regret this.  This […]

  2. Love the list of bands, very neat to see the history of the conference. Looking forward to Dreamforce 2017!

  3. In 2014 Bruno Mars played out in Civic Center Plaza while Cake played in the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium – first (and only) time there was an alternative simultaneous concert

  4. 2017 Music is Alicia Keys & Lenny Kravitz – Thanks to this list I was able to figure out how many DFs I’ve been to – 2017 will be #7 for me!

    • Yes! I’ve been behind on updating. Will take care of it soon!
