Did you get your fill of Oscar-mania? With the amount of live music options in town this week, it will be easy to put the awards-season hype behind you. Punk-rock vet Mike Watt, co-founder of 80s SoCal band the Minutemen, takes over Bottom of the Hill tonight while UK electro-pop sensation Little Boots continues her upward climb at the Fillmore. Meanwhile, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club wrap up a two-night stand at Slim's. There is something for everyone later in the week with the atmospheric sounds of The Big Pink, the South African a capella of Lady Black Mambazo, Mahler's Symphony No. 2, and the Nintendo-inspired eight-bit grooves of A_Rival. Help Phil Lesh blow out the candles at his 70th birthday bash or dance the night away with Canada's You Say Party! We Say Die! Immerse yourself in visual art at Long Play and Alchemy & Beautiful Possibility, and celebrate film outside of the Hollywood bubble at the International Asian American Film Festival. Dig deep into your wardrobe and don your finest green attire for the St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, and fade to black in gothic gear at 17th anniversary of Death Guild.
