MUSIC: Thee Parkside is sure to be packed to the gills tonight as K Records labelmates Chain And The Gang (featuring Ian Svenonius of The Nation Of Ulysses/ The Make-Up) and The Hive Dwellers (featuring Calvin Johnson of Beat Happening and founder of K Records) take the stage. SF's The Fresh & Onlys open.

PERFORMANCE: Experience "Sex, Robots and Rock-n-Roll" in a unique surreal cabaret at Thousand Faces Ball, which will feature live music, performance, and multimedia installations, or something like that. It all sounds very confusing.
