Rock out with Rogue Wave! The Oakland indie band is playing at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco Thursday. Doors open at 8 p.m., show starts at 9 p.m. If you didn't get your free tickets yet, race over to Philz Coffee at 3101 24th St. at Folsom Thursday between 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Tickets are limited.

Do you miss Mr. Potato Head and other childhood favorites? The Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia and the Classic Toy Museum has you covered. Take a tour of classic tinker toys, erector sets, ant farms and more. It's only 15 minutes south of the city and would make a great family outing. Admission every first Thursday of the month is free. They're open 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Get your Italian Baroque on at Stanford University's Toyon Lounge. They are celebrating the birthday of composer Domenico Scarlatti with a free harpsichord, viola and singing performance of his music. It may seem a little old school - Scarlatti died in 1757 - but aren't you curious what a harpsichord is? Plus, coffee, italian sodas and biscotti will be served. Starts at 7 p.m. and it should last an hour.
