"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 >>

Hemlock Tavern : 8:30 p.m. April 24

You know the opening credits of That '70s Show, where the cast of characters shout along to the Todd Griffin cover of Cheap Trick's "In the Street" while crammed in a car? It's an instant flashback to the heyday of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll, and a sound and attitude embodied by San... More >>

Leonard Cohen Love Fest

Mechanics' Institute Library : 7:00 p.m. April 30

Sylvie Simmons' marvelous biography I'm Your Man: the Life of Leonard Cohen is written like a love letter, not with the servile fawning of a young devotee but the worldly temper of one who knows what is at stake. The British-born San Franciscan teases Cohen out of seclusion with her subtle,... More >>

Embarcadero Tribute, All Ages, A Cappella

Philip Bailey

Jewish Community Center of San Francisco : 7:00 p.m. April 30

Earth, Wind & Fire is one of those rare bands that can please just about any crowd.

Shlohmo

Great American Music Hall : 9:00 p.m. daily until April 24

"Everyone's so mad at me," says Henry Laufer, better known as Shlohmo, from his couch in L.A. "Everyone tweets at me all the time: 'Did you forget about the record?'

Most San Franciscans would recognize the phrase "Baghdad by the Bay" as one of the city's many nicknames. What they might not know, especially in today's war-torn political climate, is why Herb Caen made the phrase popular in the first place. It was meant as a compliment. The real Baghdad was... 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

"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...

"Oldies Night"

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

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...

"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.
