It took five. long. days. to get here, but man, it's finally the weekend. Let's celebrate. We've got a couple of ideas.

Dear & Yonder Pt. 1: Art Show‏ @ Mollusk (Friday)
We love Mollusk parties, mostly for the fact that they force us to hang out so close to the ocean. And then, of course, there's all the cool art, film, and music the surf shop supports. Tonight it has another film/visual art/band combo going on, as the kickoff event for Dear & Yonder goes down at Mollusk from 7 until 10 p.m. Dear & Yonder is a locally made documentary by Tiffany Campbell and Andria Lessler about female surfers that was more than two years in the making. The soundtrack is star-studded with S.F. favorites, including Vetiver, Ty

Segall, Drift of a Curse, King City, Tussle, Thee Oh Sees and Hey Will

Power. Dream-folk duo Black Bow will perform the live soundtrack tonight, as guests brown-bag it through a showcase of nearly 40 D&Y-related pieces of art, including work from Ed Templeton and the Hamburger Eyes crew. (Free. Note: This is part one of two recommended D&Y gigs this weekend. See also "Surf Movie Party" on Saturday).

The Shop: Summer Blowout @Silverman Gallery (Friday)
"Summer! Always a fabulous time to stop by one of the city's finest

galleries for a pop-up shop of merchandise made by artists. While many

of us have been selling our plasma to make the rent lately, that's all

the more reason to seek some kind of inspiration in the art gems on

display at the Silverman Gallery's The Shop: Summer Blow Out. This special moment of

fabulous stuff-buying is informed in part by the spirit of the original

Fluxus movement -- a network of artists, composers, and designers in the

'60s who brought their creations together for humorous events, poking

fun at the seriousness of modern art. With that in mind, more than 20

featured artists show work that explores art vs. commerce. Alongside

pieces by portrait photographer Ari Marcopolous, zine editor and Mr.

Lady Records owner Tammy Rae Carland, and Yuval Pudik, the shop has

records, limited-edition publications, and other marvelous baubles

brought into being by local and international talents." Evan James (Free, 7-10 p.m.)

  • 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.'"
