Protest Prop 8! Obama may have won, but a lot of people lost a very important right in this election. Head to the protest to prove that San Francisco won't quit the fight. Afterwards visit the Hemlock for some kickass music. Local band Master Slash Slave, Portland's Starfucker and Oakland's Men/Miracle play starting at 9:30 pm. There will be lots of dancing, drinking and fun. Looking to take in some art? Friday night Painted Bird (24th and Guerrero) presents Starcade, art by Juliette Oken from 8 to 10.

Saturday night, Omaha's the Faint play the Warfield. Who cares that no one has talked about the Faint for years! The show is $23 and starts at 8. San Francisco's own Loquat has a CD release party at the Bottom of the Hill. The all ages show starts at 10 (doors at 8:30) and tickets are $12. They're joined by the Frail and Mist and Mast. If you're looking for a movie, the Clay is showing Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for their midnight movie Friday and Saturday.

Sunday night go see TV on the Radio at the Warfield. Despite the fact their last album wasn't HUGELY well received, they're always a pleasure to see live. Always. Tickets are $25 and the show starts at 8.

There's your weekend hitlist. - 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.'"
