So you had a long, hard week. The boss worked you too hard, you had to write a thousand papers and your girlfriend nagged you about coming home too late. Who cares? Today is Friday. The weekend. Stop moping and do some cool shit.

Tonight the hippest galleries of Lower Haight host Cultured! - A Gallery Hop. Attendees visit Lower Haters, FIFTY24SF and D-Structure. Highlights will include meet and greets with artists, prizes and booty shakin' tunes. Other activities for the evening? DJs galore for Pop Sh!t at 111 Minna Gallery. Or if you really suck, My Chemical Romance at the Warfield. Last night kids lined up around 4:30 for 6:30 doors, you better go get in line right this minute.

On Saturday hit up O'Neills Irish Pub in Ghirardelli Square to get your drink on. They're hosting Around the World in 80 Beers: A Beer Lovers Extravaganza. They claim "This enjoyable event will be a Unique opportunity for you to discover New & Exotic beers while gauging stylistic differences against your own preferences." A cultural experience indeed (or a chance to get drunk in the name of culture). If beer isn't your think and a road trip is in order, trek San Jose to see the Boss bring "Thunder Road" to California. During the day, head down to the Asian Art Museum to see the most fly new kimonos from Tomita Nobuaki.

Wrap up the weekend with Berkeley natives the Counting Crows at the Apple Store. Yes, the 90's will play and talk about their new album. Pull out the flannels and hopefully we'll get some "Mr. Jones." - Melissa Baron

  • 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.'"
