How'd the Tuesday back from your three-day turn out? Brutal? Even if you don't normally go all gushy over, oh, that Lady Gaga "Paparazzi" video, or spending daylight hours in a bar with a dance floor that flashes hard enough to induce seizure, you can find some measure of weekend extension at the two-for-one well-drink happy hour (3-8 p.m.) at Badlands. Yeah, we know: BOGOs are as much a cliché of gay bars as the mirrored pee trough, or the tragically hammered queen intent on sloshing every goddamn drop of her vodka-tonic on the blue suede of your new Adidas. But the vibe here is so amiably teadance-in-Ptown -- a Ptown inhabited by Asian guys who shop exclusively at H&M -- that it all feels vaguely vacation-like. Exactly what you need to rinse the taste of Tuesday out of your mouth. Just in time for Wednesday.

Badlands 4121 18th St. (at Castro), 626-9320

  • 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.'"
