Friday is here! Relish the fact that you can count the hours to happy hour, and then the party can begin. Start planning with these club/concert options.
Tonight: Madlib @ 103 Harriett
L.A.-based producer Madlib rides the edge of cutting-edge hip-hop production. From mainstream to underground, he’s worked with eveyone from Erykah Badu, The Alkaholics, Mos Def, De La Soul, Ghostface Killah, Talib Kweli, MF DOOM as Madvillain, and more. More info
Tonight: Social Distortion @ The Warfield
It’s been sold out for weeks, but this is a show that’s worth spending some time and maybe a couple extra bucks to find a ticket. There’s a reason why after +20 years Social D is selling out back-to-back nights at one of SF’s large concert halls, and it’s not because the band puts on crappy shows.
Saturday: Egyptian Lover @ Public Works
Take a few hours to forget about the problems abroad and let loose with classic 80s electro from L.A.’s Egyptian Lover. More info
Saturday: Tommy Guerrero @ Cafe du Nord
Celebrate with a San Francisco skateboard legend — with the guitar chops to match — as he introduces his latest record Lifeboats and Follies.
Saturday: 8th Annual Big Lebowski Party @ CellSpace
The Dude abides. ’Nuff said. More info
Saturday: Donovan’s Birthday Bash @ Yoshi’s SF
See and be seen as one of SF’s top promoters busts a move and makes a rare appearance behind the turntables. All of the homies will be there: Christian Pineiro, Alessandro Icabelli, Paul Hemming, Chris Rojas, Robert Nunez, David Soto, Adrian Goddard, Dolce Santos, Nima G, Adam Cova, Hector Garza, Dave Kim, DJ F, Sergio Criollo, and more.
