White Walls, the Shooting Gallery and Now 941 Geary

Remember when Tai emerged from her Cher and Dionne makeover in Clueless as a hot new babe? That's kinda like what happened to 941 Geary, a former smog and auto emissions check shop in the Tenderloin that has recently been reborn as a lofty-ceiling-ed, 3,000-square foot gallery space. It's brought to us by SF tastemakers Justin Giarla and Leigh Cooper, the minds behind such local game-changing galleries as as White Walls and the Shooting Gallery.

The Flaming Lips have added a second show to their weekend at the Fox in Oct. Tix go on sale tomorrow am.

Joe Goode's Traveling Light

High above our heads, a society matron in a cascading purple dress trills about her life of privilege. Across the hall, a woman in a tightly cinched mechanical bustle glides through a ballroom reminiscing about her halcyon summer affair. In the foggy courtyard, a poverty-stricken man limps toward wealth while dancers cling to window frames behind him (and the audience clings to rough blankets draped over the seats).

Comedy: Maria Bamford

The hilarious Maria Bamford, whose Black Friday ads for Target made our entire Thanksgiving weekend last year, will take the stage at Punch Line Comedy Club on Tuesday. Known for her self-depracating comedy, we’re confident saying she’s one of the most creative comics working today. Don’t be discouraged by the SOLD OUT warnings on LiveNation—work it on Craigslist or get yourself to the venue early. We bet you’ll find a way in.

Late Night with Conan: A Three-Hour Long Drinking Session with the Comedic Star

Bearded, buoyant and borderline belligerent, an awesomely inebriated Conan O'Brien, flanked by two of his equally sloshed comedic buddies Patton Oswalt and Andy Richter, offered up nuggets of sage advice and spontaneous comedic gems to Herbst Theatre's audience on Saturday. The theatre was packed to the gills with staunch members of Team Coco celebrating the 9th Annual SF Sketchfest.
