After a brief hiatus I have returned to fill your mind with excellent ways to rock your weekend. The next few days hold the potential of great live music, some cool movies and more.

Feelin' freaky? Kinky? Then CineKink has an event for you all weekend at Yerba Buena. They'll show six films: "Silken Sleeves," "Susan for Now," "Mix, Match & Mingle," "Give & Take," "Triple X Selects: The Best Of Lezploitation" and "Best of Cinekink." Or for those not looking to talk, the San Francisco Silent Film Festival runs all weekend at the Castro. The festival, now in its 13th year, promises a wide array of classic films. Tickets range in price and weekend passes are available.

Friday night Oakland's Port O'Brien play at Cafe Du Nord. They're accompanied by Portland's The Butchers and the Builders and San Francisco's The Old Fashioned Way. If that just doesn't tickle your fancy, venture to the Great American Music Hall for King Kahn & the Shrines with the Jacuzzi Boys. They'll be bringing super bad ass old school sounding rock starting at nine. Tickets are $13.

Saturday morning get ready to get your craft on. "The Renegade Craft Fair is a unique DIY event held 4 times a year in Brooklyn, NY, Chicago, IL and San Francisco, CA. RCF has gained a reputation over the last five years as being the biggest, best and the most well-known of all the DIY craft fairs out there. Each individual fair draws hundreds of applicants and tens of thousands of shoppers from all over the country and abroad! At the RCF you'll find all sorts of cool handmade stuff ranging from comic books to craft kits, silkscreened posters to reconstructed clothing. This year's event will be held Saturday and Sunday July 12 + 13 from 11am - 7pm at Fort Mason's Festival Pavilion." Plus, it's free! Or perhaps you'd prefer something a bit more mechanical like the Long Now Mechanicrawl from 3 pm to 8 pm on Saturday: "spend a summer day exploring the mechanical marvels along San Francisco's North Shore! See giant running steam engines, turn of the century automata, mechanical computers, an 8 foot high mechanical planetarium and more..." Since you already saw Hell Boy II, visit the Roxie for a showing of Nerdcore for Life. The films is about, you guessed it, nerds and their hip hop! Awesome.

Sunday doesn't have to be the worst day of the week. OneRepublic will be playing the Fillmore with Phantom Planet, Carolina Liar and they Daylights.

There you go, your weekend hitlist. Get out there and have some fun already.

  • 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.'"
