When Matt Costa sat down to write what would become "Unfamiliar Faces," the follow-up to his 2005 debut full-length "Songs We Sing," the singer/songwriter took his most treasured belongings and put them on a shelf - then stared at them and just let the memories flow. "That way I could see everything that I loved," he explains...

at various locations (see listing for times)
10 years ago, the founders of SF Indiefest thought San Francisco could use an independent film festival to compliment our great art houses, established film fests and strong art scene. The world and the city has changed a bit since 1998, but every year more Bay Area film lovers come to these festivals and enjoy the opportunity to see films they won't see elsewhere...
at The Tricycle (6pm - 9pm)
All of the work in this show deals with the experience we have had growing up in an MTV/internet/techno-disconnect world, and this resulting need for a basic level of human interaction which facilities camaraderie, brotherhood, and the sharing of knowledge and experiences.
at Paramount Theatre (6pm - 9pm)
She is an artist with an abiding, deep commitment to lyrical honesty and musical integrity. Simply put, if Jill Scott feels it, she writes and sings it. While vivid imagery, metaphor and analogy are her stock in trade, there's no pretense, no hiding. She's upfront, in-your-face always real, using her own distinctive poetry to breathe life into words, digging inside to bring forth the accompanying emotion...
at The Tunnel Top (10pm)
An International Affair hosted by residents DJ Papi Chocolate (Worldwide/Smoove) and DJ Santero (Noches de Vudu). Salsa, Samba, Soca, Reggae, Bhangra, Afrobeat & International Hip Hop every Thursday. Come chill in a laid back atmosphere and heat up the winter nights.
at Cobb's Comedy Club (see listing for times)
Janeane Garofalo's comedy is cynical, harsh, and yet somehow still charming. Her topical rants often make fun of popular culture, politics, and the pressures on women to conform to body image ideals promoted by the media. Garofalo is a self-described pessimist: "I guess I just prefer to see the dark side of things. The glass is always half empty. And cracked. And I just cut my lip on it. And chipped a tooth."

at The Warfield (8pm)

relevance. Choreographer Brittany Brown Ceres explores how emotions are stored in our bodies and their implications in our actions, while experimental theater director Maya Gurantz focuses on the lives of Silicon Valley workers as they challenge the mythology of a "Clean" Silicon Valley.
at Slim's (8pm)
HorrorPops is about attitude, doing what they want when they want, but when they say "Bring It On," it's as much about enthusiasm as it is kicking ass. As you've no doubt deduced, "Bring It On" is the title of the band's second album for Hellcat Records. Written, rehearsed and recorded over gallons of beer and Jagermeister in various LA locales, the album is a raw, focused, playfully rabid attack.
at Great American Music Hall (9pm)
The Black Lips are kings of the psychedelic garage rock underground. Their unpredictable live show has turned them into the most notorious band on the road-- three singers singing lead on almost every song, flying blood, group kissing, sudden nudity, fireworks explosions, and pissing into their mouths and onto the audience are just some of the tricks up their sleeve...
at 1015 (10pm)

at Great American Music Hall (9pm)
"Super Furry Animals were one of the first post-alternative bands, fusing together a number of disparate musical genres -- including power pop, punk rock, techno, and progressive rock -- creating a shimmering, melodic, irreverent, and willfully artsy rock & roll. As one of the leading bands of the mid-'90s Welsh movement, they were already tagged as outsiders by their tendency to sing entire songs in their native tongue...

Word for Word premieres this story of brotherhood from one of the great American storytellers.

at Exit Theatre (8pm)
Cruel and unusual sketch comedy.
at The Grand (8pm)
If the question were asked, "Who forged the genre that is known today as 'modern country music'?," only a tiny group of country immortals could step forward to share the spotlight. One, out of that select handful, would be Merle Haggard. Merle wasn't in the delivery room on the morning country music was born; it simply seems like he was...
