Friday. Countdown until we get our weekend on. Countdown of the options to consider if you want to spend less than $10 going somewhere.

Agent Ribbons @ The Knockout (Friday)

Sacramento's Agent Ribbons give old-timey music a swift punk kick. The bittersweet female trio of drums, cello, and guitar uses their angelic voices to tell devilish stories, pausing to throw a hiccup or three into a song just to make sure you know these ain't no lullabies. We're big fans of these ladies, as are Mission Creek, who booked them to play the Knockout tonight (9 p.m., $7).

Alisha's Home Cookin' Fridays @ Riptide (Friday)

Spend happy hour out by the (foggy, so very foggy) beach tonight and earn some free vittles for the effort. The Riptide feeds those who kick off the clock a little early with Home Cookin', where the menu comprises Blushin' Bunnies, chili con carne, chicken pot pie, and other items that'll make you leave the beer nuts in the bowl. Happy hour goes from 4 until 7 p.m., food goes until it's gone, and if you arrive a little late, you can still stay for the Friday night DJ, who spins good old-fashioned rock 'n' roll.

Shimositsu, Softserv @ Adobe (Friday)

One of the best things about looking at S.F. through a low-budget lens is it often opens up atypical venues for you to venture into. Case in point: Adobe Books, which has long housed experimental and quiet-leaning acts for an evening amongst the stacks of vintage lit. Tonight Mission Creek hosts a free show at the store, featuring the psych-loop duo Shimomitsu and Softserv, both of whom do nice tickly things to your ears and throw kaleidoscopic curve balls at your brain.  (7 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.'"
