What To Do? Tuesday's Pick: Eliot Spitzer at Commonwealth Club

Eliot Spitzer @ Commonwealth Club

"The Cataclysm of 2008-2009: Lessons Learned, or Lessons Ignored" is a lecture by a expert on Wall Street crime. Here's a man with history of going after securities-fraud characters, weighing in on regulatory reform and attempts to control the banking industry. It should be a bracing talk, until someone, perhaps you, wonders aloud during the Q&A whether the financial expert has tried to reach out to Tiger Woods, because Tiger Woods could sure use a friend right now. The financial expert is, of course, Eliot Spitzer, who has been doing his best to move on despite things like the Internet and people like us, but that's what you get when join the Emperors Club and have to resign in scandal. But, bygones; Spitzer knows white-collar crime, and when he isn't committing crimes (which would be at present, unless he's insane), everybody could stand to soak up what he's learned about the real criminals out there. ($7-$25, Commonwealth Club, 6 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.'"
