4/20 Celebration

Golden Gate Park : 11:00 a.m. April 20

In true counterculture fashion, there are no organizers for the annual 4/20 Celebration at Hippie Hill in Golden Gate Park.

Alicia Silverstone

Jewish Community Center of San Francisco : 7:00 p.m. April 21

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.

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.

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 >>

In 1537, combining two melodies together was banned by Cardinal Giovanni Morone, as he believed it would distract from God.

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 >>

"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.

Animal Attraction

California Academy of Sciences : Daily

In ancient Rome, the god of fertility was honored in February, with ceremonial love lotteries and mock-floggings with a bloody goatskin. Even those are a pale reflection of truly bizarre courtships that unfold in the natural world. For example, the common garden snail is a hermaphrodite that... More >>

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?

"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...

Fresh Like Cadaver

Lost Weekend Video : 8:00 p.m. second Fri. of every month

Didn't your momma ever tell you it was rude to talk during the movie?

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

Murals and the Multi-Ethnic Mission

Women's Building : 1:00 p.m. second Sat. of every month; 1:00 p.m. fourth Sun. of every month

In the beginning it was, of course, Ohlone Indian. Then it was Spanish-Ohlone. Were there Russians? It was Italian. Then it was Irish and German. As far as we can tell, the Mission District was never Chinese, but this is San Francisco, so why shouldn't it have been? It was Mexican, and then it... More >>
