Beer goes well with any season, but summertime seems especially fitting, even if San Francisco's foggy weather might be better paired with a winter ale than a light wheat brew. Fort Mason is the source of all things suds this week with the Stella Artois event A Taste of Belgium, followed by the BreastFest Beer Festival. The U.S. Air Guitar Championships will likely feature a few beer-fueled performances and you can tip your glass to Woody Guthrie at his 100th Birthday Celebration Show. Work up an appetite out on the dance floor with Push the Feeling or Com Truise and Kid606 on Friday. Then test your palate with Lamb and Beer Pairings at a SF Chefs Preview on Saturday.

Bobby Browser: "In typical 100% Silk fashion, the EP's four trackjoin the dots between touchy-feely, retro-futurist house, acid and slick, mid '80s synth-boogie. Throughout, the production is blissfully glassy-eyed and authentically vintage. The results are superb..." -Juno
