This weekend is kind of a slow one for music in the Bay Area--next week promises to be better, with many artists hitting town before or after the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival--but if you're looking for something to do Saturday night, how about "Golden Era: East Meets West Edition."

Somewhat of a bicoastal soundclash, the event, held at 111 Minna, matches DJs Jah Yzer and Daze (spinning classic East coast hip-hop) with Mr. E  , Franky Fresh, and Vickity Slick (spinning West Coast favorites). The music selection promises to hark back to an earlier, simpler time in hip-hop, before the genre went corporate. Tickets are $5 before 11 pm and $10 thereafter. More info is here.
