So Rickshaw Stop, the funky little club near Civic Center on Fell Street, is turning 10 years old next January. In its decade on the S.F. scene, Rickshaw has hosted a frankly crazy number of big names, like M.I.A., Vampire Weekend, Tune-Yards, Toro y Moi, Matthew Dear, Neon Indian, Jesse Ware, and many more.

To celebrate the considerable achievement of keeping a good live music club open in S.F. for 10 years, the Rickshaw's owners are throwing a special week of shows in January. Headliners announced so far include Mikal Cronin and the Spits, but there's a "SUPER AMAZING HEADLINER AND SUPPORT ACT" that the club can't announce until November 24. Tickets will be available individually starting Wednesday, Oct. 23, but the venue will be selling a week-long pass for $65 that will get you into all the shows. Here's the schedule so far:

  • 24th Annual Autumn Moon Festival

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
