This weekend's hand-picked soirees offer no running theme between them. Your four Weekend Party Preview options are completely disparate and wonderfully eclectic in their own rights. We'd like to think that such a mixed up spread should please even the most alienated and discerning party-goer San Francisco can throw our way.

Friday, March 26
What: Psychedelic Radio w/ Kial, Megalodon, Zapruderpedro, and more
Where: Club Six
When: 10 p.m. - 2 a.m.
Why: Party-starting promotion teams Hellefante and Hit 'N Run bring you this special night of dubstep, reggae, and electro jams. The elusive DJs lurking behind the decks for this shadowy affair come courtesy of SF's Double Drop Recordings, among other locally-based music collectives. Between the crunchy tunes from Megalodon, Kial, and Zapruderpedro there will be enough slow-grooving beats and wobbling bass to turn any skeptic into a serious dub-head. Plus, it's totally free before 11 p.m. if you RSVP.

What: Teenage Dance Craze w/ Russel Quan, Sergio Iglesias, and Mr. DXXX
Where: The Knockout
When: 10 p.m. - 2 a.m.
Why: Sometimes it's nice to go to a bar where doing the twist doesn't look completely ridiculous. The Teenage Dance Craze party is just the spot, and this Friday at The Knockout is your chance to go act like a fool to some oldies music. DJs Russel Quan, Sergio Iglesias, and Mr. DXXX will be providing the 45s of surf, garage rock, R&B, rockabilly, classic Beatles, and all other tunes twist-able for this revitalized sock hop.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
