It's getting ugly out there. And we don't mean the weather. The Presidential Campaigns are getting hot and heavy...and if the latest Democratic debate is any indication, it's going to get pretty crazy come Super Tuesday. Luckily, we still have two more weeks. Until then there's the Chinese New Year Spectacular at The Orpheum Theatre. Celebrate the Year of the Rat with a little song and dance. Or take a be-costumed stroll through time at The Edwardian World's Faire at Great American Music Hall. If two weeks is too long a wait, you can light your political fervor at Ignite the People at Club Six. On Saturday you can either relive the 80s at Barracuda at 111 Minna or take in some serious action at the World Supercross Series at AT&T Park. Then after Sunday brunch, you can hang out with man's best friends at the Golden Gate Kennel Dog Show at Cow Palace.

The history of the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festivals had its early beginnings in 1982. It was grounded in aloha and for the love of the music and man that was synonymous with the music. It was an opportunity to pay tribute to the contributions of a man who contributed so much to the music of Hawaii, and at the same time, continue his legacy and help to perpetuate and preserve a unique Hawaiian acoustic guitar art form known as "Ki-ho'alu".

Imagine the last thing you'd ever expect a badboy producer of rough urban beats to say, and it would probably be: "my favourite key is either A minor or C minor right now." But spend time with 18-year-old west London dubstep producer D1 and that's exactly what you'll hear.

With a live performance that, in terms of sheer energy and passion, out-strips any band you care to mention...

"When the band started, we met at Erika's house with our old Casios. We were just hanging out, drinking tea and trying to figure out old 80s pop songs. Erika had a drum machine, and they are much better keyboard players than I am. They have been playing longer, so they were using both of their hands and couldn't push any of the drum machine buttons. I had wanted to play drums since I was little, and I just saw a role that needed to be filled." - Heather D'Angelo
