Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti & Os Mutantes Co-Headline @ The Regency Ballroom

If you've been trying to think up ways to keep busy on these cold, mellow nights, look no further than tonight.

Margaret Cho's Top 7 San Francisco Picks

Paratrooper, punk rocker, sailor, sex kitten: Margaret Cho is comedy’s chameleon. The SF native has stunned sold-out crowds with her crass stand-up spiel—think Notorious C.H.O., Revolution, Assassin, and Beautiful—and has tackled television with her VH1 reality sitcom The Cho Show and Lifetime dramedy, Drop Dead Diva. Never afraid to reinvent herself, Cho made her first foray into music last August and is currently on tour promoting her debut album, Cho Dependent, which features indie faves Tegan and Sara, Andrew Bird, and Grant Lee Phillips, plus Fiona Apple and Ani DiFranco.

Robin Williams and W. Kamau Bell at Glide’s Annual Holiday Festival

If you want to support San Francisco's disenfranchised in this season o’ charitable giving, but need more compelling incentive than a dude with a red bucket and bell - incentive like, say, Robin Williams and fried chicken - mark Thursday for Glide’s annual fundraiser. You'll get world-class comedy and the smug satisfaction of supporting Glide's grand tradition of helping Tenderloin residents find their feet and their spirit.

It will be a night of the most embarrassing and cringe-worthy readings from teen journals, unanswered love letters and angst-written artifacts.

Grinderman Brings The Dirty Blues To The Warfield


















“I waaant you,” wails Nick Cave on “Kitchenette” off the latest Grinderman album, 2 (Anti-). Oprah Winfrey burning up the flatscreen, buck-toothed imbeciles are plaguing the vocalist’s existence, and Cave’s howl starts on a high note before teetering over into an even more precariously higher place and then crashing and burning with the undercutting next line. “Yeah, I want you—to be my friend.”

Virginia Madsen Spends a Night at the Sundance Kabuki Revisiting 'Sideways'

Virginia Madsen had plenty to celebrate this Thanksgiving. Last month, she was an official honoree of Hollywood’s LA Femme International Film Festival, an annual celebration of films written, directed or produced by women, for her achievements during 27 years in TV and film, and also for her recently formed production company’s maiden offering: I Know a Woman Like That, an acclaimed documentary about the lives of women 64 and older whose youthful vigor remains defiantly undiminished.
