The glitter is out in San Francisco for SF Pride, and there are nearly endless options to join in on the fun. The party reaches a climax with the annual Gay Pride Parade and party at the Civic Center, but there are plenty of other distractions earlier in the week. Tyler, the Creator and the Odd Future crew - the biggest music buzz story so far in 2011 - bring the ruckus to the Regency Ballroom tonight, while locals Thao & Mirah return with sweeter melodies. Diplo and Switch make a rare, intimate appearance at SOM. and Pride weekend begins with a few laughs with Sandra Barnhart. Keep the party going 'til the early morning with the Paul Oakenfold, and show the world how you whammy at the U.S. Air Guitar Championship. Finish the long weekend of partying and toot your horn at the Hornblower Pride Yacht Party and put a cherry on top with the Pride edition of Hard French.
