Stuck in post-World Cup doldrums? Ease back into reality and a regular sleep schedule with one last taste of international competition at Bastille Day Dance Off. The U.S. will face France on the dance floor as DJs spin mod, pop, indie, and new wave from both countries at the Make-Out Room - just don't invite your Spanish friends! If you are in need of more immediate action, see what Lil' Kim is up to these days during her performance tonight at the Rrazz Room. There's more throwback action at Hot Wax '80s Ladies Edition. Indie rock stalwarts the New Pornographers make Bay Area stops this week, and locals The Stone Foxes celebrate their latest release at Caf du Nord. If you still need some time to give your ears a rest from the incessant vuvuzela, hide out at the Silent Film Festival or get out and stretch your legs for a good cause at AIDS Walk San Francisco 2010.

Question of the week: Who plays the role of Frederick Frankenstein in Young Frankenstein? First to find the answer in the Guide this week and email [email protected] two passes to the Stone Foxes' CD release party.
