Not Music: The Onion Presents 826 Valencia's Mustache-a-Thon, 8pm at 12 Galaxies. Free.

"For a few weeks more I am taking part in 826 Valencia's Mustache-a-thon -- what's 826 Valencia you may ask? And what's a mustache-a-thon? Well curious stranger, 826 Valencia is a non-profit organization in San Francisco that helps children ages 6-18 with writing skills, and offers various services including free drop-in tutoring and specialized workshops. This here mustache-a-thon is a way for them to raise money through the concerted efforts of its participants and their follicle-farming abilities." --Craigslist

Face-melting noise and chaos: Horns and telehorse.uma, 8pm at Hemlock Tavern. Cheap.

"Eons ago, deep in an infinite abyss of pure black and dark matter, three immortal elements fused from the surrounding evil in a bath of onyx blood. No light permeated from the collision of anti-atoms. mutating from a four-headed demon, the monster severed one of it's own heads, casting it into insanity. As the creature slept, for thousands of nightmarish years, it's instincts evolved. Upon its awakening, HORNS arose to the dark throne of power!!!" --MySpace

Collaborative effort -- jazz, pop, folk: Rob Woodcock and Linda Draper, 8pm at The Make-Out Room, with The Orange Peels, and That Man Fantastic. $6.

"Linda Drapers beautiful voice, polished lyrics and refined instrumentation make her a fitting companion to those we trust for a little bit of sweetened honesty as we cycle through the occasionally bitter life." --Left Off The Dial

Lusciously thoughtful and hummable: Laura Veirs, 9pm at Cafe du Nord. $12

"She doesn't just put her thoughts and feelings to music, she wraps them in images of mermaids and white spider stars; instead of tears falling from her eyes, there are galaxies. But the songs don't float off into space; the strumming guitars and subtle electronic effects give the fantastic lyrics an earthy feel, rather than lifting them into the air." --Neumu

  • 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.'"
