Still reeling from various April Fool's Day pranks? Or are you still slinking around until you make your move? Either way, after today, the rest of the week will seem positively breezy. Kick things off with Robot Rock at Mezzanine featuring Digitalism. Then on Thursday turn an ordinary meal into a worthwhile donation during Dine for a Change at participating restaurants all over SF. Go over to the Dark Side at Evil Breaks' 4 Year Anniversary at Mighty or get spiffed up for fashion and music extravaganza Chillin at 111 Minna with over 50 local designers. If art is more your game, the best bets are Urban Bush Women at YBCA and/or Rod Serling's The Time Element at The Dark Room Theatre.
