OTN, T-Shirts, and Tunes at Mezzanine - Tuesday Oct 2.

By now you've probably heard about the Oracle OpenWorld Music Festival, which will bring an incredible array of bands, spanning the spectrum of genres, to several venues throughout San Francisco.

The festival runs Sunday through Thursday, with a break on Wednesday for the Oracle Appreciation Event on Treasure Island featuring Pearl Jam, Kings of Leon, and X.

The OTN crew will be on hand, passing out t-shirts and resisting the temptation to misbehave. Mostly.
