This is probably the most major weekend of all time, what with Friday the 13th, Valentine's Day and Presidents Day one after the other. Here's what you should do:

Love Hedwig? How about movies where you watch a guy try to give himself a blowjob? Like it better when he succeeds? If so, head to the Victoria Theatre in the Mission for "Origin of Love: Celebrating Love, Sex and..." It's a very special celebration with John Cameron Mitchell, the genius behind "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" and "Shortbus." Friday and Saturday they're showing "Shortbus" with "Hedwig" on Saturday and Sunday. There will also be three very special guests: Connie Champagne (2/13 & 2/15), Peaches Christ (2/14) and Anita Cocktail (2/14). There's no better way to get romantic this weekend. But perhaps you prefer roller skating? "SF IndieFest presents: ROLLER DISCO! Fri Feb 13 at CellSpace. Tunes and skate rentals provided by Black Rock Roller Disco. IndieFest not responsible for alcohol influenced roller skating wipe outs! 21 up. $10, $5 in Costume, Free with any IndieFest ticket stub. Advance tix, more info at"

Without love this Valentine's Day? Instead of going to see "He's Just Not That Into You," get your frustration out by beating the shit out of people with a pillow! San Francisco Pillow Fight Club presents their annual violent fun again this year in Justin Herman Plaza at 6. Want to take your significant other for the best date ever? Bill Cosby is performing two shows at the Paramount at Oakland. What better way to get in the mood for love? If you still actually care about NOFX (you are pathetic) they are performing a million times this week. See them Valentine's Day at Thee Parkside.

Sunday night go see Lykke Li at the Fillmore. Apparently a lot of people think she rules and is really hot, but I really don't know a thing about her.  Plus, Monday is President's Day so you can stay out late.

That's your weekend hitlist.

  • 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.'"
