See and be seen at these select San Francisco shows, parties, and events. You know, because you can't read the Internet all the time.


BASTILLE DAY: Bastille Day gets a block party at the Irish Bank Bar, and yeah, it's probably just an excuse to drink wine, but so be it. Two alleys and several outdoor bars are designated for the happening. 10 Mark Lane, 5 p.m., Free until 5:30, then $10

BASTILLE DAY Dance Party: Does Chef Hubert Keller DJ as well as he cooks? You decide at this French fete held at Hawthorn in association with the Alliance Francaise (but he won't be going on until he finishes with this nearby benefit dinner). 46 Geary Street, 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., $10


LECTURE: Were you a fan of "Seep City," Joel Pomerantz's exploration of the ancient streams and water sources in what's now our own back yard? Then hear him speak at the Exploratorium on the subject. Pier 15, The Embarcadero, 6 p.m. doors, 7 p.m. talk, Free but must RSVP

SHOW: Down Dirty Shake bring their raw rock n roll talent to Milk Bar along with other San Francisco outfits like the Coo Coo Birds, Peachalope, and Jet Trash. 184 Haight Street, 8 p.m., Free with RSVP


SHOW: Formed in 1997 and anchored by John Dwyer, The Oh Sees have taken up psychedelic-post-punk residency at the Chapel. This is their last of three performances. 777 Valencia Street, 8 p.m. doors, 9 p.m. show, $18 advance, $20 door

DRUNK SPELLING BEE: The Buzzed Bee at Stage Werx puts your spelling and liver to the test. You could spell better than some 5th grader on TV, couldn't you? Well, if you mess up, you can always blame it on the drink. Let's see a 5th grader try to do that. 446 Valencia Street, 6:30 doors, 7 p.m. event, Free to spectate, $10 to compete


SHOW: "Hey ma (what's up) lets slide (alright)." That's a free preview of your night with Cameron Ezike Giles aka Cam'ron, live in performance at 1015 Folsom. 1015 Folsom Street, 10 p.m., $25

SHOW: With likeminded group Malice Cooper opening, the all-girl tribute to Bon Scott Eea AC/DC, AC/Dshe does dirty work dirt cheap at the Chapel. 777 Valencia Street, 8 p.m. doors, 9 p.m. show, $16 advance, $18 door


CELLO CONCERT: With cello arrangements from popular artists who range from Kanye to Radiohead and Beck, the instrumentalists of the Portland Cello Project are the genuine article. Called on for all kinds of performances and recording needs, we'll have to see what they have in store this weekend at Great American Music Hall. 859 O'Farrell Street, 8 p.m. doors, 9 p.m., show, $16


OUTDOOR PIANO: Go play the pianos tucked into the SF Botanical Gardens, which look and sound like this. You can also just listen to a number of pros perform, and that schedule is here. 1199 9th Avenue, 10 a.m., Free for SF residents

OUTDOOR CONCERT: tUnE-yArDs is as much of a contemporary headliner as is fitting for Stern Grove, and if the weather's good, you'll want to set up camp early. She's Oakland-based, by the way. Sloat Boulevard, 2 p.m., Free
