Alcatraz Night Tour

Alcatraz Island : Every Mon., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun.

Alcatraz -- "The Rock" -- is one of those tours that you have to take at least once, whether you're local or just visiting. The abandoned prison sitting on an island about a mile and a half off the city's north shore was home to some of the most infamous names in crime, including Al Capone, it... More >>

Judy Chicago: A Butterfly for Oakland

Oakland Museum of California : Every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until November 30

Her name is synonymous with feminist art, feminist books, and the city of her birth. Judy Chicago was born Judy Cohen and then became Judy Gerowitz during her first marriage, but she legally changed her last name in 1970 to eliminate any reference to what she considered gender subservience....

Legion of Honor : 9:30 a.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun.

Andy Diaz Hope & Jon Bernson: Beautification Machine

Catharine Clark Gallery : 4:00 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. from July 26 until September 6

In the past month alone, San Francisco has seen an arsonist roaming through SOMA, a missing Alzheimer's patient, and about a half-dozen shootings. It's safe to say that watching the daily news can be scary stuff. Throw in the panic and negativity that these events spawn and you've got yourself... More >>

Potrero Hill Arts, Art - Galleries

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 >>

"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 On The Cheap, Nightlife, Music

"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 Music, LGBT Events, Food and Drink

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.

"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...

"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 >>

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 Nightlife, Music

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 >>

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 >>

Sketch Tuesdays

111 Minna Gallery : 6:00 p.m. fourth Tue. of every month

Sketch Tuesdays, founded in 2006, is a monthly event where 20 or so local artists hang out and make their art on a small scale.

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? Unless, that is, the following conditions exist: The movie is godawful, you're parked on a couch with someone who shares your bad attitude, and you're a world-class wit. That last prerequisite is usually the sticking point,... More >>

Mission/ Bernal Heights Film Events and Repertory, Comedy

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 >>

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 >>

South of Market Nightlife, Cabaret and Drag

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 >>

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 >>

Japantown/Pacific Heights Pets, Free Events, Arts


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 >>

San Francisco City Guides Walking Tours

Multiple San Francisco Locations : Daily

As a self-described "logical extension of a free public library," our local free walking-tour company is, like most libraries, a fascinating mash of nerdy and white-hot rad. The San Francisco City Guides walking tours happen every day (except major holidays), are free, and follow in the... 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 >>
