At our most primal, what do we really need to have a good time? We could probably narrow it down to three: breasts, beer, and barbeque. Before you leave this frat party completely disgusted, this is San Francisco, so of course there's a philanthropy aspect to all the, uh, titillation.

The 12th Annual Breastfest Beer Festival brings 60 breweries together to raise money and awareness for the Charlotte Maxwell Complementary Clinic, a nonprofit clinic offering alternative medical treatments for low-income women diagnosed with cancer. (Health care plans rarely cover alternative treatments like acupuncture, Chinese and Western herbs, and social services.) If there's an easier way to help cure cancer than by knocking back a couple cold ones, we don't know of it. In addition to booze and boobs, Breastfest also offers local food and numerous Bay Area musicians, including rock cover band Metal Shop and DJ Von. If you'd call yourself a Beer Guzzler 4 Breasts (there's that frat boy again), drink up!

BreastFest is this Saturday, July 14 at 3 p.m. at Fort Mason Center. Admission is $45-$55.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
