Dreamforce Party Setup
Salesforce, the cloud computing behemoth, puts on a huge convention at Moscone Center every year that sprawls over Howard Street for a couple of weeks, and then caps the event with an outdoor party and rock concert in Civic Center Plaza for conventioneers.
They started setting up for the Tuesday evening event last weekend...
...and it was fun watching stages being erected and surreally large color bars being projected...
...while an army of roadies assembled light towers.
In terms of neighborhood intrusiveness, it's not as bad as Gay Pride Weekend, and we also get to hear the "mystery headliners."
This year it was the bands Cake and Bruno Mars, which certainly fit in with the extravagance of the affair.
