San Francisco International Film Festival
This past weekend will go down as one of the warmest of the year. If you didn't get a chance to hit the beach and sun yourself in one of our many lovely parks, never fear - spring is here! Who says the ladies can't bring it? An all-female DJ line-up gets things heated up at Buffet at Pink. And it's almost time for the SF International Film Festival to kick-off but first there's SFIFF51 Bar Night at Sugar Café featuring clips and trailers from upcoming films along with delectable cocktails. On Friday night dance your ass off at the 3 Year Anniversary of Blow Up at Rickshaw Stop and this weekend celebrate Earth Day at either Berkeley Earth Day or the San Francisco Zoo.

Rilo Kiley's audiences have a strong tendency to fall in love on the spot. Perhaps it's their beaming faces or laid-back, admirable West Coast attitudes. Or maybe it's just their uncanny knack for designing nuanced pop songs and performing them with flair. Maybe it's lead singers Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennet's adorable onstage banter and scissors-sharp wit...
