All Shook Down Will Go Quiet for Memorial Day

Posted By on Fri, May 27, 2011 at 5:29 PM

Just a heads up: All Shook Down will be back Tuesday, not Monday, as usual, thanks to the long holiday. We hope this will prevent us from having to post hungover (again). Though probably not.

Here's a celebratory song: a cover of Graham Nash's "Military Madness" by Woods.

Have a good weekend.

There was no shortage of fun and games last weekend, and our hard-working writers and photographers beat the pavement to bring you news of the fun you missed (or can't remember).

The city may be losing it over the World Cup, but there was another cup in town this weekend: the first ever High Times Medical Cannabis Cup.  Check out Chris Roberts shots of the colorful (the main color was green) event.

Monday Hangover: Air Guitar, Matt and Kim, Tom Petty, Faust, Live 105's BFD

Posted By on Mon, Jun 7, 2010 at 6:21 PM

Summer has arrived people. You know what that means: there are several hours during he day in which you can wear shorts (in select city micro-climates) before you start freezing to death and regretting your wardrobe choice. But that's what weekends are for: drinking enough to feel comfortable in shorts outdoors after the sun slips away.

The U.S. Air Guitar Championship went down at the Fillmore, and the best imaginary-guitar players were on hand to shred it up (some in shredded short-shorts) before a panel of judges and fans.

Monday Morning Hangover: Multiculturalism, Prom, & Masturbation

Posted By on Tue, Jun 1, 2010 at 3:12 PM

Here's hoping you are so hungover from Memorial Day Weekend that you won't notice this is actually Tuesday Afternoon Sober. Waiting until next Monday and omitting Saturday's Masturbate-a-thon would be a downright disservice.

San Franciscans embraced their diversity by dancing in the Mission at the 32nd annual Carnaval Festival. This person beckons from The Land of Wide-Grinned Rainbow Characters.

The annual Rock and Roll party at Cat Club was a chance to do prom right for those people too cool for school. Next time I'd appreciate if these girls didn't copy my signature pose.

Masturbate-a-thon for the nonprofit Center for Sex & Culture: One way to work up an appetite. Also a really good way to lose one.

SF's club Ultra Fixx teamed up with Vegas club Tao and celebrated the holiday weekend at Tao Beach in Las Vegas. This woman strikes at the core of Memorial Day. Peace.

Posted By on Mon, May 24, 2010 at 11:02 AM

Monday Morning Hangover: Bay to Breakers, Oysterfest & More

Posted By on Mon, May 17, 2010 at 9:53 AM

Good morning! How's that Bay to Breakers hangover treating you? Oh, you woke up in a cardboard box wearing half of your Where's Waldo costume and you're still drunk? Well, you should probably find a place to take a shower. You're late for work.

HANNA QUEVEDO
  • Hanna Quevedo
The race turned costumed-drunken boozefest rolled through the city last weekend, replete with people dressed as watermelons and naughty schoolgirls, and the occasional serious runner.

The booze also flowed at the 11th Annual S.F. Oysterfest, but out of taps, not bongs. Bivalve lovers slurped up oysters and took in performances by Cake, the Ravonettes, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, and more.

Posted By on Mon, Apr 26, 2010 at 11:10 AM

As the Summer(ish) months start rolling in, it seems the possibilities for weekend distractions multiply exponentially. This past weekend offered an embarrassment of riches: comedy, music, art and bawdiness abounded.

  • 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.'"
