Have you RSVP'd for the big class reunion? No, I'm not talking about the one where you can see your old high school chums. I'm referring to one that you actually might want to attend.

It's called Rotfest and it's a reunion of some of the old garage-rock acts from the San Mateo/Foster City area, most of which had their heyday in the late '80s or early '90s. The acts include 3 Stoned Men, Icky Boyfriends, UKE Band, Junior Executives, Pineapple Princess, We Could Be Friends and the Peddlers (which is the one I'd be most interested in seeing).

The fourth annual Rotfest is set for 6 p.m. Aug. 10 at Hemlock Tavern in San Francisco. You don't really need to RSVP. Just show up. Admission is $10. For more information, visit www.hemlocktavern.com.
