Monday Morning Hangover: Cannabis Expo, Red Hots Burlesque, and Bed Races

Posted By on Mon, Apr 19, 2010 at 1:46 PM

This weekend offered a plethora of choices for music fans, pot fans, and people who are fans of racing household furniture through the streets. (Fans of all three basically had the best weekend ever.)

Marijuana advocates and enthusiasts crowded the International Cannabis and Hemp Expo, that featured exhibitions, speakers, a patients' lounge, and our very own Tom Ammiano.

Monday Morning Hangover: Sopping Wet

Posted By on Mon, Apr 12, 2010 at 10:57 AM

This weekend's torrential downpour was enough to keep us inside with a bottle of Jim Beam's finest, streaming Hallmark made-for-TV Criterion movies on Netflix. But in spite of the wretched weather, we managed to pull on our on-trend galoshes and slog out into the night.

Posted By on Mon, Apr 5, 2010 at 1:17 PM

We're sure you missed out on most of these events, since you were in church all weekend praying and stuff, so it's a good thing we kept a detailed record for you.

Neither rain nor sleet nor fear of God's wrath could stop the annual Hunky Jesus Contest from happening, so when the skies opened up and poured fourth, the Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence just moved their event inside. And, of course, the crowds followed.

Monday Morning Hangover: Bondage, Carnivals, & Tobacco

Posted By on Mon, Mar 29, 2010 at 11:01 AM

Finally, San Francisco weather, you did something right. Sunshine all weekend and then on Monday you bring the rain. We appreciate that there's a drought going on, so we're down with the wetness, but if you could keep up this trend, we'd appreciate. There was a lot of stuff going on this weekend, so let's just get down to it, OK? OK.

Monday Morning Hangover: Meanwhile, In Austin...

Posted By on Mon, Mar 22, 2010 at 10:02 AM

Has anybody else noticed how the sun takes a vacation on the weekend and then shows up in full force on Monday morning like it's no big deal? We know you're just biding your time, sun. We'll wait patiently. And in the meantime, we don't need you for our nighttime shenanigans.

Monday Morning Hangover: Snuggies, White Rabbits, & Tegan and Sara

Posted By on Mon, Mar 8, 2010 at 10:33 AM

Happy Monday! Aren't you glad you decided to do a shot every time they mentioned Avatar, Sandra Bullock or Patrick Swayze last night on the Oscars? No? Well, suck it up. Here's your run down of what you don't remember from last weekend.

Monday Morning Hangover: Fog City Wrestling, Bohemian Carnival, Noise Pop, & More

Posted By on Mon, Mar 1, 2010 at 11:26 AM

The office coffee is burned (again) and you've got 537 emails in your inbox. You could probably take a fifteen minute pre-work break (those totally exist!) and read this before you start your week. How was your weekend? Ours was pretty busy.

Monday Morning Hangover: Hearts and Soul

Posted By on Mon, Feb 15, 2010 at 11:07 AM

So, last weekend was Valentine's Day Weekend. Which means that people who weren't coupled up and doing something all barfy-cute were using it as an opportunity to hook-up. (Because nothing is more fun than waking up on Feb. 14 and wondering whether or not it's appropriate to wish your conquest a happy Valentine's Day.) The Knock Out was happy to help, providing a dance floor and a No Pants Party. Check out shots of people hamming it up in the skivvies here.

Monday Morning Hangover: Mardi Gras, Goths, and Bondage

Posted By on Mon, Feb 8, 2010 at 11:45 AM

It didn't rain this weekend. Well, not really. There was a torrential downpour Saturday night, and while most kids were tucked in their beds, the streets, as cold as they were, were crowded with people primed to party as a respite from ghastly weather.

Cafe Van Clef got into the spirit, throwing an early Mardi Gras party. Brass music and shimmying were the order of the day, and patrons threw back a few (or more), getting pumped to cheer on the Saints at Sunday's Superbowl. Check out shots of the to-do in Calibree Photography's Mardi Gras @ Cafe Vane Cleef.

Things were a bit less sunny, but no less sultry at the DNA Lounge, where striped stockings, top hats, and crinoline were donned for the Swing Goth's Wonderland: A Tim Burton Ball. Lovely shots of the dark dance in Richard Haick's  Swing Goth's Wonderland: A Tim Burton Ball.

  • 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.'"
