Green Festival 2007
If you've already had your share of tricks this past weekend, then get ready for some treats! Move your hijinks from the Castro to the SOMA tomorrow night. Celebrate Halloween at the Cat Club with Peaches Christ and Heklina. Then store up on your culture at the opening reception of Stick and Move at Frey Norris Gallery featuring the art of emerging young talent from Asia. On Friday remember lost loved ones in your life or just soak up the ambiance at the Dia de los Muertos Procession in the Mission starting at 24th and Bryant. The next day, get pumped for the slopes at Icer Air at AT&T Park where crowds will sure to be wowed by the ski and snowboard aerial competition. Speaking of aerials...Women Who Fly Through the Air at Dance Mission Theater also looks like a breathtaking bet.

As a collective of musicians and artists, STS9 (Sound Tribe Sector 9) creates and expresses a musical style that is unique unto itself.

at Cat Club (10pm - afterhours)
Drag Impressario's Heklina and Peaches Christ put on a decadent spookfest this Halloween as an alternative to the cancelled Castro Party. They promise, "if you go to the Castro, you will get shot, and you will die!" Sounds like a good reson to go their party. Performances by a bevy of gender illusionists and excellent dance jams provided by the nights DJs sounds like an even better reason to attend. However, be prepared to shell out extra cash if you show up out of costume!

at Thee Parkside (8pm)
"3 Inches Of Blood has arrived to tread on the bleached bones of those exhausted genres. A band to unite the tribes of mall rats, skaters, punks and bikers under one banner. Because, after years of a steady de-evolution of the founding tenets of heavy music, to today's ears, 3 Inches Of Blood's Advance And Vanquish could not be more fresh..."
at Cobb's Comedy Club (8pm)
Kevin Nealon clearly set himself apart from other performers with his unique sense of humor, profound dry wit, and likeable demeanor.

In 1988 Kevin was nominated for an Emmy Award as part of the SNL writing team.
at Great American Music Hall (9pm)
"Marc Bolan may be dead, but Battles can rebuild him. They have the technology. On "Atlas", the second track on the band's debut album, drummer John Stanier's pistons pump out a steroidal version of Bolan's trademark shuffling stomp-beat. His three bandmates-- Ian Williams, Dave Konopka, and Tyondai Braxton-- constrict their two-note keyboards and one-note guitars until the song coalesces into a stiff, slick, swinging robot rock." - pitchforkmedia

at Books Inc. at Opera Plaza (2pm)
"What he has produced in Giving is his own version of It Takes a Village, and with an initial print run of 750,000, Knopf clearly hopes to duplicate Hillary Clinton's publishing success. (An unspecified portion of the proceeds will go to the causes mentioned in the book.) But Giving is not so much a book as an extended public service announcement masquerading as a book." - Washigton Post

at Receiver Gallery (10am - 6pm)
Bay Area artists, John Casey and Martha Sue Harris morph their fantastic curiosities and illuminate the darkest corners of our minds. The extraordinary world of pseudo-science can best be explained through human effort to counteract natural world. Structural defects, abnormalities, and explorations in unattainable worlds of nature immediately conjure up engaging and winsome images. Both John and Martha have brought their artistic talents to Receiver Gallery in what is surely to be a show to question your beliefs.
at Red Vic (7:15pm & 9:15pm)
Almost everything Americans eat contains corn; high fructose corn syrup, corn-fed meat and corn-based processed foods are the staples of the modern diet. King Corn is a hip and entertaining documentary about the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation.
