The Bay Area Andy Warhol appreciation spreads across the bridge this weekend, when Amoeba Records hosts a Factory Party  in Emeryville (1343 Powell St.). The event sounds pretty sweet (especially because it's free, and all ages), boasting two Velvet Underground cover bands, live art making (screenprints and screen tests), displays of Warhol's "Screen Tests," "Iconic Factory furniture, artwork, and characters," and an invitation to dress in your '60s best.

Plus the party is a giant art show for 60 Amoeba-employed artists. All the info you need is here

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
