Monday Morning Hangover: Cannabis Expo, Red Hots Burlesque, and Bed Races

Posted By on Mon, Apr 19, 2010 at 1:46 PM

This weekend offered a plethora of choices for music fans, pot fans, and people who are fans of racing household furniture through the streets. (Fans of all three basically had the best weekend ever.)

Marijuana advocates and enthusiasts crowded the International Cannabis and Hemp Expo, that featured exhibitions, speakers, a patients' lounge, and our very own Tom Ammiano.

A film screening and free oysters were not the tastiest treats at Red Hots Burlesque at El Rio, where Suppositori Spelling, Dottie Lux, and Molotov Lady all made appearances.

For everyone who didn't get enough of the Coachella acts that hit San

Francisco pre-festival, there were three days of fun in the sun with a

jaw-dropping line-up of artists. Check out photos from day one, two and three.

Meanwhile, the 1st Annual Bed Races were anything but sleepy. Teams of creatively clothed competitors raced -- you guessed it-- beds down Fillmore.

Following all the weekend's excitement, bed is kind of where we'd like to be right now. Do you think anyone will notice if we crawl under the cubicle for a nap?

  • 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.'"
