Pug Sunday

Alta Plaza Park : 2:30 p.m. first Sun. of every month

They're squat, fat, and prone to a myriad of health issues. They resemble miniature Ewoks and can be heard blocks away by their heavy snorting and grunting. Of course the people of San Francisco want to dedicate one day each month to this creature, the pug. Pug owners, enthusiasts, and friends... More >>

Guided Tours of Coit Tower Murals

Coit Tower : 11:00 a.m. every Wed.

Coit Tower has its history, and it's definitely got its views -- and some of the best of each is inside the tower itself. The murals, commissioned during the beginning of the New Deal in the 1930s as a way to get artists back to work were painted by some masters in modern art history. After... More >>

Some Thing

The Stud : Every Fri.

The unGoogleable inheritor of the Trannyshack art-drag scepter is known as Some Thing; each Friday brings a new theme via semi-pun. It could be simple, such as Some Thing Good, or it could be A Li’l Sumptin’ Some Thing, which is funny but what are you going to wear? The first show... More >>

The News

SOMArts Cultural Center : 7:30 p.m. first Tue. of every month

For a city flooded with artists that doubles as a mecca for the queer community, San Francisco seems to sometimes have trouble letting go of the formalities of a professional art and performance world. Limited gallery time and space mean carefully selected artists are expected to put out... More >>

Paxton Gate Storyhour

Paxton Gate's Curiosities for Kids : 12:00 p.m. every Thu.

Paxton Gate Storyhour is a weekly, sweetly, sit-my-wee-one-down place where Pecos Bill rubs shoulders with Mike Mulligan, and the Little Prince contemplates the Great Ball of Fire!, a poetic explanation of the universe by local teacher Betty-Ann Kissilove. These books are lovingly selected,... More >>

Writers with Drinks

Make-Out Room : 7:30 p.m. second Sat. of every month

When you move to San Francisco and ask about the literary scene, Writers with Drinks is likely the first thing people tell you about. For one thing, most of us can get behind drinking as a social activity, especially when it's being done by the witty and verbose. But the real reason is host... More >>

The Erotic Reading Circle

Center for Sex & Culture : 7:30 p.m. fourth Wed. of every month

Finding your voice as a writer is hard. Finding your voice as an erotic writer is all but impossible. In one direction is "awkward and clinical." In another is "Anne Rice." And there's literally hundreds of others that result in the rough equivalent of "I have a headache." Further complicating... 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 >>

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 Music, On The Cheap, Free Events


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 Music, Nightlife

"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....

DNA Lounge : 7:30 p.m. second Fri. of every month

Crack the lid of your inner geek and prepare to cringe-laugh with Mortified, the storytelling series that brings teen angst to light in the form of comic storytelling from journals, poems, notebooks, letters, lyrics, photos, home movies, schoolwork, and other pubescent artifacts, performed by...

"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 Business: A Comedy Show

Dark Room Theater : 8:00 p.m. every Wed.

Four comedians anchor the weekly stand-up show The Business, and they’re all extremely smart and funny. Alex Koll has dramatic hair on his face and head, Sean Keane is bringin’ self-deprecation back, and Chris Garcia is mean and angry, yet somehow also gentle. But we bet they all hate... More >>

Beginning Tribal Belly Dance

ODC Dance Commons : 7:30 p.m. every Wed.; 1:00 p.m. every Sat.

Jill Parker's Beginning Tribal Belly Dance classes are a classic San Francisco experience: They're welcoming, weird, diverse, sweaty, trance-inducing, and somehow simultaneously straight and gay. Some students love to feel they're in a place where it's OK to actually have a belly, some come to... More >>

Work MORE! #6

SOMArts Cultural Center : Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until April 24

In 1972, Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro, co-founders of CalArts' Feminist Art Program, turned a dilapidated Hollywood mansion into "Womanhouse," a space transformed by the creations of nearly 30 young female artists. On the first day, the exhibit was only open to female viewers; by the last... More >>

Friday Nights at the de Young

de Young Museum : 5:00 p.m. every Fri. until November 28

Pair a great museum with a few cocktails and you've pretty much attained the pinnacle of the high-culture experience.

Baxtalo Drom

Amnesia : 9:00 p.m. fourth Fri. of every month

If it's dancing girls you want, or if it's a dancing girl you are, Baxtalo Drom is your jam. Deep, deep in the steampunk jungle, this belly-dance-flavored club is rife with old-timey aesthetics, exposed tattooage, and feathers in hairdos. The evening is organized by the very pretty women of... More >>

Poetry at the 33

3300 Club : 7:00 p.m. last Tue. of every month

Most of what we know about Poetry at the 33 is that Kim Addonizio either used to hang out there or still does. That may sound like it isn't very much to go on, but Addonizio is one of the city's most underrated talents. She's a fucking genius, if you want to know the truth. If there's any... More >>

Humpday Happy Hour Workshop

Good Vibrations : 6:30 p.m. every Wed.

Not everyone is comfortable talking about sex. In fact, just hearing the word in public is enough to make some people uneasy, even here in liberal San Francisco. For those of you looking to explore your sexuality in the new year (or are just curious what the fuss is all about), head on over to... More >>

Jemima Kirke: Platforms

Fouladi Projects : Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 10

If beauty lies in symmetry, then Jemima Kirke's models lack it, at least by her rendering. With mismatched eyes, crooked noses and deep scowl lines, to call her portraits of these women "quirky" is an understatement and trivialization. The title of her show, Platforms, references not only the... More >>

Air Conditioning

House of Air : 7:00 p.m. every Mon., Wed.; 8:00 a.m. every Sat.

You like to have your butt thoroughly kicked, do you not? You may have already kicked your own butt with dance class, yoga class, brutal hikes, standard gym visits, athletic sex, or what have you, but have you done it on a trampoline? At Air Conditioning classes, use the power of bouncing to... More >>

Gardens of Alcatraz Tours

Alcatraz Island : 9:45 a.m. every Fri., Sun.

To our recurring surprise, many locals never get the idea to visit Alcatraz, because traveling by boat to an island to walk around cellblocks is just something they don't like do. How come? Because tourists get that idea, every day, by the shorts-wearing boatloads. Here's your solution: The... More >>
