Main Attrakionz, The Classical, Laughters, Claire Elise

Milk Bar : 8:00 p.m. July 24

The sky clearly isn't the limit for Oakland hip-hop duo Main Attrakionz, that seems to thrive in its current residence of outer space. Bursting from the nascent "cloud rap" scene of five years ago — think lo-fi SoundCloud mixtapes and internet-only debuts — the combo of Mondre... More >>

Haight/ Fillmore Hip-Hop

Jon Hopkins, Teebs

Mezzanine : 8:30 p.m. July 24

Immunity, the latest album by East London sound designer Jon Hopkins, opens with the sound of someone unlocking a reverberant space. Whether it's a field recording of Hopkins entering his Hackney home studio or a more figurative entrance, the feeling is the same: access has been given to an... More >>

South of Market Dance

The Purple Ones, The Goldenhearts, Phone Sex Operators, DJ Rockin

Slim's : 9:00 p.m. July 26

Remember 1984? Big hair, bright makeup, and costume jewelry were inescapable. Kids walked around yelling, "Where's the beef?" Tetris, the CD, and Apple Macintosh made their debut. Amadeus won the Oscar but Ghostbusters won the day. Michael Jackson swept the first MTV Music Awards and Madonna... More >>

NightLife

California Academy of Sciences : 6:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. every Thu.

It doesn't get more sophisticated than a cocktail in one hand and no children in sight.

Richmond (Inner) Dance

S.F. Symphony: Hello, Gorgeous!

Davies Symphony Hall : 7:30 p.m. daily from July 24 until July 25

TV fans know Cheyenne Jackson as the sweet and naive Canadian who got to make out with Tina Fey and brush elbows with Tracy Morgan on NBC's 30 Rock. But in real life, the (American-born) actor is much more than just a pretty face who struggles to pronounce the word "about." Originally a... More >>

Hayes Valley/ Tenderloin Showtunes, Drag, Cabaret, Broadway, All Ages

Shabazz Palaces

The New Parish : 9:00 p.m. daily from July 28 until July 29

First, Ishmael Butler rapped as "Butterfly" in Digable Planets, a '90s jazz-rap group produced by King Britt — their 1993 single, "Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)" won a Grammy. By the end of the 2000s, Butler quietly re-emerged as "Palaceer Lazaro" in the group Shabazz Palaces, a... More >>

Downtown Oakland Hip-Hop

Melissa Etheridge with the S.F. Symphony

Davies Symphony Hall : 7:30 p.m. daily from July 30 until July 31

Melissa Etheridge's career exceeded expectations even before she was a household name.

"Oldies Night"

The Knockout : 10:00 p.m. first Fri. of every month

Few things can match the sheer exuberance of a packed house at Oldies Night. The long-standing Mission staple is one of the best places in the city to lose yourself and sweat it out dancing to soul 45s. DJs Primo and Daniel serve up a broad selection of cuts (both common and rare) to a crowd of... More >>

Mission/ Bernal Heights Soul, Oldies, DJ

"Hard French"

El Rio : 2:00 p.m. first Sat. of every month

At this point in time, Hard French might as well be a local institution. Now into its third season, the Motown-heavy queer day party presents itself as a viable alternative to the usual Saturday hangover damage control. Head down to the El Rio and you'll be able to catch six hours of "hard... More >>

Mission/ Bernal Heights Soul, Oldies, LGBT, DJ, Dance

Classical Revolution

Mission/ Bernal Heights Free, Classical

"Lost & Found"

Make-Out Room : 9:30 p.m. every Tue.

While most '60s soul parties are dedicated to uptempo bangers, Lost & Found takes a different tack. Thrown Tuesday nights at the Make-Out Room, it's an evening dedicated to the slower side of soul with a playlist that sounds tailor-made for some hip '60s prom. Veteran DJs Lucky and Primo...

Mission/ Bernal Heights Soul, R&B, DJ

"Death Guild"

DNA Lounge : 9:30 p.m. every Mon.

Dying to dance, brood, or peel the yellow wallpaper off the wall? Well, so are these fun freaks. Join them at Death Guild, won't you?

Audium-Theatre of Sound-Sculptured Space : 8:30 p.m. every Fri., Sat.

The Audium was started in 1965 by composer Stan Shaff and equipment designer Doug McEachern. Shows are Fridays and Saturdays, and you have to be there on time — they lock the door. The room fits 50 people or so. There are chairs arranged in a semicircle. There are something like 180... More >>

Smack Dab

Magnet : 7:30 p.m. third Wed. of every month

Buried deep down in the very core of our hearts is the passion to perform. We secretly want to dress in 1960s get-up, strap on a ukulele, and do Tiny Tim covers. No? Maybe that's just us. However, we can all agree on the burning desire to perform and create art. The hard part (besides mustering... More >>

Castro/ Noe Valley Open Mic

"Housepitality"

F8 : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.

Like hunger, the urge to dance can strike at rather inopportune moments. When you get that midweek itch, Housepitality is something you can turn to for relief. Put on by Miguel Solari and PillowTalk's Michael Tello, it's a weekly affair dedicated to the deeper strains of dance music. Swing by... More >>

"The Teenage Dance Craze"

The Knockout : 10:00 p.m. last Fri. of every month

We're just dreaming, but here is our dream: to see dive-bar dancers whose attention to detail matches the obsession of Bay Area vintage-music DJs. For example, at Lonely Teardrops' doo-wop night about a year ago, we lost our composure and requested a Claudine Clark song. "I have one," the DJ... More >>

Mission/ Bernal Heights Rock, Oldies, Garage, DJ

Gaucho, Eric Garland's Jazz Session, The Amnesiacs

Amnesia : 7:00 p.m. every Wed.

The term "gaucho" commonly refers to nomadic South American cowboys, which is pretty indicative of how the San Francisco band Gaucho plays its version of Gypsy jazz: in Gaucho's hands, le jazz manouche is left playfully unchained to the genre's European historical foundations, allowing the...

Mission/ Bernal Heights Free, Gypsy, Jazz, Acoustic

"1964"

Edinburgh Castle : 10:00 p.m. second Wed. of every month; 10:00 p.m. fourth Wed. of every month

This dance party gets the records spinning every second and fourth Wednesday of the month. While the red Christmas lights could come across as gauche, they prove to be casually intimate as you and other stylish fauxhemians are transported to 1964. That's right: The Shirelles, the Sapphires, the... More >>

Hayes Valley/ Tenderloin Soul, DJ, Oldies, Rock

"2 Men Will Move You"

Amnesia : 9:00 p.m. second Sat. of every month

In a period of time seemingly dominated by guests from out of town, it's comforting to know that there are still local alternatives. 2 Men Will Move You is a party put together by long-time fixtures on the San Francisco nightlife scene Primo Pitino (of Oldies Night fame) and Jordan Heyser....

"Push the Feeling"

Underground SF : 9:00 p.m. first Sat. of every month

Since high school, Push the Feeling residents and founders Kevin Meenan (Epicsauce DJs) and Drew Marcogliese (Yr Skull) have been trying to one up each other in musical discoveries.

"Fringe"

Madrone Art Bar : 9:00 p.m. third Sat. of every month

Ever wish you were on the set of your favorite indie music video, dancing in a meadow with flowers and half-naked hipsters surrounding you? Well, good, we don't either. It's much more preferable to live out this indie dancing fantasy in a small club, where shots are pouring and pollen allergies... More >>

Haight/ Fillmore Indie Rock, Electro, DJ, Dance

"Indie Slash"

Amnesia : 10:00 p.m. second Fri. of every month

Synth-pop dance party Indie Slash is one of those consistently enjoyable events where dress code, cliques, and blinding laser lights don't interfere with one's ability to enjoy interesting music and have a good time. The idea of the party came to founder DJ Danny White over 10 years ago, as he... More >>

Mission/ Bernal Heights New Wave, Indie Rock, Electro, DJ, Dance

Haight-Ashbury Street Fair

Haight-Ashbury : 11:00 a.m. second Sun. of every 12 months

Few neighborhoods in San Francisco have as much living history as the Haight. Hippies still trundle into town with their backpacks and dogs in tow to pay homage to the Grateful Dead's old house at 710 Ashbury St. Diamond Dave — who was part of the '60s free food movement the Diggers... More >>

Haight/ Fillmore Rock, Free, All Ages

"Peaches"

Skylark Bar : 10:00 p.m. every Thu.

Ever since she was a child, Bay Area DJ ThatGirl has been interested in street art and its connection to the hip-hop movement. However, it wasn't until she attended a rave in 1997 that she discovered her desire to channel this creativity into music, most notably turntablism. She soon purchased... More >>
