Did Noise Pop leave your ears ringing and your body aching or are you ready to party on an Olympic scale? There are plenty of options for both this week. You can mellow out with the calm indie-rock sounds of Taken By Trees or pump up the volume with Lil Brthr with Claude Von Stroke. Watch art unfold before your eyes at the 10th Annual Monster Drawing Rally, featuring nearly 130 artists, and pick up some new threads - and maybe even a date - at Trunk & Swap. Polk Street will be crawling with warm and snuggly partygoers as the San Francisco Snuggie Pub Crawl takes over the neighborhood. Legendary conguero Poncho Sanchez will set the groove with Afro-Cuban jazz at Yoshi's while the Great San Francisco Crystal Fair fills the Fort Mason Center with crystals, minerals, beads, and the healing arts.
