If you have difficulty making decisions, then this week is going to be especially hard for you. It's as if the event gods have sprinkled the next seven days with fairy dust and dozens of events have sprouted up all over the week. There are so many choices but here are our esteemed picks...tonight check out the newest exhibition at the Conservatory of Flowers "Edible Expeditions". Make a date night out of it and grab some dinner afterwards. Don't let the band's name fool you; Little Joy will put a huge smile on your face when they perform at The Independent. On Thursday add a little horror and sci-fi spice to your life at the opening night of the Another Hole in the Head Film Festival. And in these tough economic times, you have to take advantage of giveaways and deals while you can, which is why Opera at the Ballpark featuring Puccini's "Tosca" is one of the best freebies of the summer. If the opera is just too classy for you, then fear not - there'll be a Zombie Beach Party at DNA Louge to sate your appetite. Return to AT&T Park on Saturday for family-friendly Bookstock where all things art will be celebrated. That evening, leave the kiddies at home and get ready to burn at PreCompression at Mission Rock Café. Sunday will hopefully bring the sun so that we can all thoroughly enjoy the Union Street Festival with its expanded eco-zone. Monday kicks off the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference at Moscone Center West where you can nerd out with your iphone out.

at The Independent (8pm)

"Through a chance encounter at a Portuguese festival in Lisbon, where both Amarante (Singer/Guitarist of Los Hermanos) and Moretti (drummer of The Strokes) had performed, the two chatted well through the night and into the morning by the side of the river, humoring the idea of working together on music that had no affiliation to their particular bands."

at The Grand at the Regency Center (9pm)

"Peaches is a phenomena; the self-made, self-produced, do-it-yourself leader of the electro punk movement and high priestess of the original dirty lyrical classic (check 'Fuck The Pain Away' and 'Shake Yer Dix' for confirmation). Unique with her minimal pumping beats and loved by true innovators as diverse as Deborah Harry, Iggy Pop, Bjork..."
at Bottom of the Hill (10pm)

"Hailed as one of the top 3 performances at Glastonbury Festival '07 : "Electo-pop perverts Holy F*ck make a noise as abrasive as it is awesome ... these dark disco droogs thread every sound under the sun through their electric playground of wires. They come on like the nastiest electronic band since Suicide, or like the The Fall reworking their brains with screwdrivers, or Add N to (X) playing speed metal..."

"Rogue Wave was formed in 2002 when Zach Rogue took off from his San Francisco home, headed for New York, and came home with nearly a full album's worth of songs recorded. Rogue then quit his post in his previous group, the Desoto Reds, and finished the album, which was released on Rogue's own Responsive label under the title of Out of the Shadow..."
at 142 Throckmorton Theatre (8pm)

"Of all the guitarists with limited use of their fingers, Django Reinhardt far and beyond stretched the guitar to its furthest capability. With only two properly working fretting fingers, Reinhardt nonetheless laid down some of the finest solos in the history of the instrument, and remains a looming influence on every jazz guitarist today (guitarist Jim Hall's dog is named Django, for example). It is impossible to separate Reinhardt's music from the extraordinary circumstances in his personal life..."
