Earth Day S.F. 2014

Civic Center Plaza : 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. April 19

This year, much of San Joaquin Valley, California's top agricultural producing region, looks like a dustbowl. Despite California's history of drought, it's impossible to avoid thinking about last month's report from the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which concludes, "The... More >>

Mali Weekend Festival: Tinariwen

Nourse Theatre : 8:00 p.m. April 19

Some musicians become inseparable from a locale: think N.W.A's connection to Compton, Elvis to Memphis, the Sex Pistols to London. Tinariwen, a 35-year-old band with an ever-shifting cast, is another example of the musician-location bond in action, although not in the way you might think. This... More >>

Hayes Valley/ Tenderloin International, Festival, All Ages, African

Maceo Plex, Galen, Solar, Bells & Whistles, Matt Hubert, Dax Lee, Nick Williams

Public Works : 9:00 p.m. April 19

Maceo Plex may not be Eric Estornel's first project, but it is his first alias to become famous at a global level. The American producer (now living in Valencia, Spain) is at the forefront of a new big-room house sound that fuses vocals with glossy, looped-up instrumentation. "Vibe Your Love"... More >>

Mission/ Bernal Heights House, DJ, Dance

Nina Kraviz, Discern, Rooz

Harlot : 9:00 p.m. April 19

Nina Kraviz is a polarizing figure. The way she owns her feminine sexuality — in her music and in her public persona — seems to make a lot of people nervous. But no matter what you think of the pornier aspects of her marketing, it doesn't change the fact that she's a badass DJ able... More >>

South of Market Techno, House, EDM, DJ, Dance

Godflesh, Cut Hands, House of Low Culture, DJ Blk Rainbow

DNA Lounge : 8:30 p.m. April 20

"I am not, never have been, nor ever will be, a Nazi/fascist/racist. I think and hope that would be without question obvious to most people that know me even just a little bit." These are the words of William Bennett, a British industrial musician and noise pioneer who's been at the fore of... More >>

South of Market Rock, Metal, Industrial, Experimental, Electronica, All Ages

The Men, CCR Headcleaner, Gun Outfit

Rickshaw Stop : 8:00 p.m. April 21

Gun Outfit's third album from last year, Hard Coming Down, saw the Olympia, Wash., band shedding the 1980s college rock garb and exposing the bare essentials of its songwriting. Alternating between two singers, the vocals are refreshingly unadorned and high in the mix, as if to say, "Hear me... More >>

Hayes Valley/ Tenderloin Rock, All Ages

The Dillinger Escape Plan, Trash Talk, Retox, Shining

DNA Lounge : 7:30 p.m. April 23

If you haven't seen Dillinger Escape Plan live, you remain unaware of the true technical heaviness of which human musicians are capable. When we say this New Jersey mathcore quintet is powerful live, we mean that you will probably spend half the set wanting to physically assault yourself, and... More >>

South of Market Rock, Punk, Prog, Post-Hardcore, Metal, Hardcore, All Ages

Proxy, Crimson Scarlet, Ruleta Rusa, Apriori, Fatigue

The Knockout : 9:15 p.m. April 23

Canadian punk act Proxy nods heavily to Oi! bombast, with walloping, mid-tempo backbeats that propel anthemic guitar leads and gruff vocals through lengthy and uproarious songs. Laden with the imagery of combat and civil strife, Proxy's lyrics evoke the Arab Spring and America's self-righteous... 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

Audium 9

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 >>

Nob Hill/ Russian Hill/ Fisherman's Wharf New Age, Ambient, Experimental

"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

"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? Every Monday night at DNA Lounge, gaggles of 18-and-over moody bastards come to show off their blackest attire and eyeliner while pouting to goth, industrial,... More >>

Classical Revolution

Revolution Cafe : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.

Armed with stringed instruments and intense training from the likes of Juilliard and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Classical Revolution is on a mission to change the way classical music is perceived and performed in this city. Conceived in late 2006, the collective's intent has been... More >>

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

"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 Oldies, Soul, DJ


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


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 >>

"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....

"Indie Slash"

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

Having recently celebrating its 8th anniversary, synth-pop dance party Indie Slash is still 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... More >>

"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. "Through the years we bonded over who found what band first, who was the first to see them live, and who could... More >>

"The Booty Bassment"

The Knockout : 10:00 p.m. third Sat. of every month

Thank whatever cosmic entity you like that Booty Bassment is still going strong in San Francisco. While other mix masters may act like they'll bring some of your favorite guilty pleasure club bangers to their parties, only to wimp out when comes down to it, Bassment's resident DJs, Ryan Poulsen...

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 >>
