10 Things To Do This Weekend For Under $10

Posted By on Fri, Sep 4, 2009 at 7:18 AM

Happy holiday weekend to y'all. A bunch of cheap stuff on tap over the next three days, including comedian Mary Van Note, the brain behind the video series above, "Gavin Really Wants Me." Details on her show, and everything else we'd recommend for under $10, below. 

Home Is Something I Carry with Me @ the Mission (Friday & Saturday)
"'Home Is Something I Carry with Me' explores the concept of 'home' through a novel curatorial conceit. For a couple of days, two houses in the Mission will be taken over by art, with individual rooms acting as galleries organized around specific themes like shelter, migration, and neighborhood identities. The show features work by more than 40 artists, including a set of shadow-box dioramas called Homes for the Homies created by Cindy De Losa (populated, naturally, with Homies dolls and photographs of 24th Street) and Klea McKenna's haunting water-damaged slide projections of her grandparents' Mexican honeymoon. Curator Adrienne Skye Roberts has been working on the show for about a year, and drew inspiration from the current rash of foreclosures, rapid development, and the threat of rent control repeals. A  showing of seven short films (Sept. 4 at 9 p.m.) accompanies the exhibit, taking place in the backyard of a third home. 'Home Is Something I Carry with Me' runs 4-8 p.m. (also noon-5p.m. Sept. 5) at 951 Shotwell (at 24th St.) and 3352 24th St. (at Bartlett). Admission is free." (Evan James)

Cocky White Guys @ the Castro (Friday)
We're cheating on this entry because this event costs $10 on the nose. But we're also not sure where else you'd find three movies for a ten-spot. Tonight the Castro hosts a triple threat of "Cocky White Guys" flicks with Risky Business at 7:30, Fast Times at Ridgemont High at 9:30, and The Last American Virgin at 11:30. Three gems from America's horniest cinematic decade.

Gemini Disco @ Underground SF (Saturday)
This is one of those birthdays that requires your presence, instead of presents. Gemini Disco has held down the dancefloor for three solid years now, so it's throwing a big ol' celebration Saturday night at Underground SF. Not only that, but the DJs are giving you free admission if you show up before 11 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.'"
