Big city nightlife is always in flux. Some staple clubs go by the wayside, while others flourish under a handoff in ownership. New bosses generally mean a remodel or soundsystem upgrade to set the venue apart from its past aesthetic. For us revelers, these changes invite fresh ways to get down to our favorite music. This week's Weekend Party Preview selections offer an array of options, including plenty of house music, eclectic hip-hop tunes, classic disco beats, and some killer pizza at clubs both old and newly re-envisioned.

Friday. March 5

What: Solid w/ Fil Latorre and Andre Lucero
Where: Club 222
When: 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Why: At least one thing has stayed consistent through the many changes 222 Hyde recently went through, and that's the pizza. The tasty snack provides easy temptation to hit up 222's happy hour, but the kicker is the no-holds-barred tunes pumping through their brand new soundsystem. Solid is tight-lipped about the exact selections that'll be on deck, promising only that DJs Fil Latorre and Andre Lucero will play "no house, no techno," and adding that they'll keep their selections "weird." Sounds like an intriguing way to start the weekend.

What: Hauswork w/ Christian Martin, Mykill, Drrn, and more
Where: 111 Minna
When: 9 p.m. - 2 a.m.
Why: House music is alive and well in San Francisco, and it's nights like this roving monthly party that prove it. Overtaking the two rooms of the 111 Minna gallery are some of the hardest working DJs in the local dance music scene. In The Carpenter Room resides all "haus" tunes propagated by Dirtybird's Christian Martin and his like minded beat-heads. Next door will be The French Maid Room with DJs Mykill, Drrn, and co. spreading the word of electro, hip-hop, and whatever lies in between. The promoters suggest you dress up like a carpenter or a French maid, adding, "there are some awesome prizes for the best costumes."

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
