Join us at Jiffy Lube Live on a Friday night in July for some great music at a very reasonable price and even cheaper with the Groupon http://www.groupon.com/deals/gl-jiffy-lube-live-1

Like a fine wine, a good pop song gets better with age and has notes of chocolate that only true connoisseurs can taste. Regale your sonic palate with this GrouponLive deal to see the Mermaids of Alcatraz tour featuring Train with Michael Franti & Spearhead at Jiffy Lube Live. For $15, you get one G-Pass for general admission to the lawn on Friday, July 12, at 7 p.m. (up to a $25 value, including all fees). Doors open at 6 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.

The Grammy-winning trio Train freights a cargo of breezy melodies and poignant jams, satiating legions of fans on the Mermaids of Alcatraz 2013 tour. With intrinsically catchy beats and crossover appeal, Train's euphonic anthems bridge the gap between the hearts and brains of millions. Best known for Grammy-magnet singles such as “Hey, Soul Sister,” “Drops of Jupiter,” and “Calling All Angels,” Train’s grooves, combined with Patrick Monahan’s lilting vocals, stick in ears like relentless peanut butter. During the gripping live show, devotees can expect sing-alongs from Train’s catalog of smashes and cochleae candy from the band's latest album, California 37. Train even tickles die-hard fans' other senses with its own wine and chocolate brand, the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co., which features song-based libations such as the Soul Sister pinot noir and the Drops of Jupiter red wine, fermented from astronaut tears.

Singer, poet, and guitarist Michael Franti broke onto the scene with boundary-pushing experiments in industrial music, jazz, and hip-hop before channeling his heightened social consciousness into a sunnier style. With a six-piece band including vocalist Jolene Rust and Nigerian-trained drummer Manas Itiene, he conducts a peace train that rolls on deep grooves of reggae, rap, folk, and soul. The band's most recent album, The Sound of Sunshine, has global inspiration built right into its DNA: many of the acoustic-based tracks were variously written in Bali, recorded in arena locker rooms in Canada, or produced in Jamaica, influences that spill out in their onstage instrumentation.
