This Week's Hottest Events: Adele, Iron & Wine, and Flight of the Conchords' Arj Barker

Adele

Music
Iron & Wine
Sam Beam's mopey mix of folk rock means a mellow night at the Warfield. Brush up on this year's Kiss Each Other Clean before you try to sneak in to the sold-out show. 
When: 8 p.m., Wed. 6/1
Where: The Warfield, 982 Market St., goldenvoice.com

Comedy
Arj Barker from Flight of the Conchords
Jump on the Barker bandwagon this week at Cobb's, and expect hilarious commentary on the quirky Bay Area lifestyle from an insider's point of view (he's a former Marin resident).
When: Thurs. 6/2 – Sun. 6/5
Where: Cobb's Comedy Club, 915 Columbus Ave., cobbscomedy.com

Nightlife
Penguins and Pajamas at Cal Academy
Stage your very own night at the museum, Ben Stiller-style, at Cal Academy's first-ever grown-ups-only sleepover. Cocktails, a four-foot Jenga, and a late night movie in the Planetarium? Sold. More on that here.
When: 6 p.m. - 8 a.m., Sat. 6/4
Where: California Academy of Sciences, 55 Music Concourse Dr., calacademy.org

Music
Adele
The show's been sold-out since the second it went on sale, but then it moved to the Greek Theatre in Berkeley. Bets are that at least a few lucky ticketholders won't want to make the trek out to the East Bay, so be on standby to see the sexy songstress live.
When: 8 p.m., Sat. 6/4
Where: Greek Theatre, Hearst Ave. and Gayley Rd., Berkeley, apeconcerts.com


Music
Earth, Wind, and Fire
Go old-school if you don't want to take the chance on Adele. These Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Famers have produced four decades of Grammy-grade work definitely worth the $50-$100 to see them live.
When: 8 p.m., Sat. 6/4
Where: Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, 99 Grove St., apeconcerts.com
