The sun is shining, weather is sweet, and there's no better time to turn up the bass and embrace the January summertime vibes. Get down with the king of interplanetary funksmanship as George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic mother ship land at Yoshi's this week. And if you can't get enough of that funky stuff, keep the party going with Robert Randolph and the Family Band. Catch two emerging acts when The Blow and SF's own Sonny and the Sunsets hit the stage at Great American Music Hall, and see what Glitter Wizard is all about at Hemlock Tavern. If you're in need of some quite time, get schooled on the latest high-tech happenings at Macworld and check out a guest lecture appearance by director Gus Van Sant. And make sure you are ready for the big V-Day with our Valentine's Day Guide to Top Restaurants, Best Events and more!
