Hey! The rain is over for now, and it's looking to be a pretty nice weekend, with Friday being the warmest day. So it's time to get back in that springtime frame of mind, and finish putting away your winter gear, and go out into the world to do things with actual humans.
TUESDAY, APRIL 18
STORYTELLING ABOUT BEING STONED: In honor of 4/20 Eve Eve, this edition of Peaches Christ Productions' OutLoud Storytelling, hosted by Tommy Salami, will be all about stories of getting baked, bouldered, and blitzed. And while weed won't be provide, there will be drinks. Oasis, 298 11th Street at Folsom, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., $10
RADIOHEAD AT THE GREEK: One of the major shows of Fauxchella 2017 is obviously sold out, but you know there are always ways to get a ticket if you're willing to spend some cash. And I saw them at the Greek once, and it was awesome. Berkeley Greek Theatre, 2001 Gayley Road, Berkeley, 6:30 p.m.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19
A TALK WITH WOZ: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has lots to say about business, technology, and the state of the world generally, and he'll be a featured speaker this week at The University of San Francisco's School of Management. Tickets aren't too pricey and there's hosted apps if you get there early, and maybe there'll be some networking opportunities. USF, War Memorial Gymnasium, 2335 Golden Gate Avenue, 6 to 8 p.m., $29
ROISIN MURPHY AT THE WARFIELD: Also coming off raves for her Coachella set, and joining the Fauxchella brigade, acclaimed, totally rad Irish artist Roisin Murphy will be kicking it at The Warfield, and there are still regular tickets left for this show, which is sure to be worth it. Never heard of her? Watch a video. The Warfield, 982 Market Street, Doors at 7 p.m., $29.50
FREE CHAMBER MUSIC CONCERT: Celebrating the life and work of Bay Area new music composer Lou Harrison, the SF Conservatory is performing a free concert of his work, on the occasion of his 100th birthday (next month), featuring the SFCM New Music Ensemble, conducted by Nicole Paiement. Harrison, who taught at Mills College and San Jose State University, is known in part for his use of non-Western traditions in his music. Caroline H. Hume Concert Hall, 50 Oak Street, 8 p.m., Free
THURSDAY, APRIL 20
HEALTHY CORNER STORE ART INSTALLATION: The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts is teaming up with the Tenderloin Healthy Corner Store Coalition (TLHCSC) to symbolically replace in-store ads at one corner store for tobacco products, beer, and unhealthy foods with artwork that promotes healthier food options, all created by teenagers who are part of the YBCA Youth Fellows program. It should be cute. Mid City Market, 868 Geary Street, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
BIG BEACH BONFIRE PARTY: In celebration of the beginning of bonfire season on Ocean Beach, local group NOW! is organizing this big bonfire party, which is of course being tied to the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, even though it isn't summer yet. No glass is allowed on the beach, only cans, and technically no booze either, but you know. Ocean Beach, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
FRIDAY, APRIL 21
SING-ALONG LA-LA LAND: In the grand tradition of sing-along Little Mermaid and sing-along Sound of Music comes this event at the Castro Theatre, featuring music that most of the audience is guaranteed not to know nearly as well as those other two, from almost-Best Picture winner La La Land. There's a pre-show "concert," or some kind of warm-up with drag queen Leigh Crow, and you can expect a whole lot of humming after that opening number. Castro Theatre, 429 Castro Street, 8 p.m., $13
SATURDAY, APRIL 22
10th ANNUAL DOGFEST: In one of the city's most popular dog parks, Duboce Park, is hosting the tenth edition of Dog Fest, which is a dog-lovers' picnic of sorts with an Everyday Dog Show, carnival games, a silent auction, and more. It all benefits SFUSD McKinley Elementary School, which is around the corner at Castro and 14th Street, and yes, there will be rescue pups to tempt the vulnerable. Duboce Park, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
DANCE MUSIC PICNIC IN THE PARK: Though they're not calling it a festival, a bunch of DJs been throwing interconnected events all week under the heading of Unabridged, and it culminates with this free outdoor party in Elk Glen Meadow in Golden Gate Park. Sunset Sound System's Solar B2B Mozhgan and Polyglamorous' Mark O'Brien will both be spinning, and it's an all-day daylight affair. Elk Glen Meadow, near Lincoln and 25th Avenue, Noon to 6 p.m. Free, but donations encouraged
QUEER HIP-HOP PARTY: This newish party is having its fourth installment for the young and queer at SoMa club OMG called AS IF, and while it's billed as 21+, that should probably be read as "just barely." They're promising "old school 90's" jams and hip-hop, and there's a free Jell-O shot with ticket purchase, for what it's worth. OMG, 43 6th Street, 9 p.m., $5-$7
SUNDAY, APRIL 23
RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE SPECIAL APPEARANCE: If you're a fan of RPDR and have been watching this season, you're probably impressed with contestant Nina Bo'Nina Brown of Atlanta. Well, she's in SF this weekend and will be performing Sunday night at Beaux in the Castro, which may be one of the last times you'll get to see her on such a small stage. You can also take selfies with her after the show, for free, but bring your dollar bills for her and the other queens. Beaux, 2344 Market Street, 8 p.m. to 2 a.m., $8 (free before 8 p.m.)
