KFOG Announces 2016 Concert For Kids Lineup KFOG/San Francisco announced the lineup for its 31st Concert For Kids. The concert takes place Thursday, December 8, 2016, at the Masonic in San Francisco, with Band of Horses, Blind Pilot and The Revivalists. Proceeds from the show will benefit UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals and Marines Toys for Tots.
KFOG PD Bryan Schock said, "Band of Horses has been one of my favorite indie rock bands for the last decade, and we're excited to have our longtime friends, Blind Pilot, back in the Bay after their recent sold-out Fillmore show. When it comes to songs I just can't get out of my head, "Wish I Knew You" by The Revivalists is at the top of the list! I can't wait to see all three of the bands live, and when you take into consideration that it's all for a great cause, I know it will be a very special night in San Francisco.”
