MUSIC: KUSF in Exile presents veteran alternative rockers, Meat Puppets, are at the Independent tonight promoting their thirteenth studio album, Lollipop, which "fits in perfectly with such mid '80s classics as Up on the Sun and the underrated Mirage (while not coming off as an attempt to recreate a certain musical era of the group)." Also featuring Flamingo and Bad Weather California. (8:30 p.m., The Independent, 628 Divisadero Street)

PERFORMANCE: The 10th Annual Fresh Meat Festival, the nation's premiere transgender and queer performance festival, is happening all weekend. Tonight's event features super-stars Vogue Evolution in their first Bay Area appearance, along with a huge allstar line-up. (8 p.m., Z Space at Theater Artaud, 450 Florida Street)

ART: Touring art collective, Non Solo, hits San Francisco tonight with a site-specific installation, featuring work by the group that was produced both collaboratively and individually, "experimenting with traditional paradigms of the solitary artist and the hive minded collective, and exploring the vast number of ways in which contemporary art finds its place in culture." (7 to 10 p.m., The Spare Room Project, 270 Anderson Street)
