And if exhibitionist games and vinyl aren't to your taste then there's Honeycut playing at Great American Music Hall. And for all you Oprah-maniacs there's the O, The Oprah Magazine's O You! Event at Moscone Center. There'll be more O-ness than you can possibly imagine. On Sunday, bring your cellphone and your desire for change to the 10-Day Countdown, Rally & Mega Phonebank.
