Forgotten Treasures: Fun fact – up until 1972 Ocean Beach was the home to Playland at The Beach, a seemingly epic 10-acre amusement park in the vein of Coney Island. Fast forward 38 years, and we don't even have a miniature golf course or batting cage within the city. Hmmp! Come relieve the Playland magic tonight at The San Francisco Public Library, as they host a free screening of local filmmaker Tom Wyrsch's Remembering Playland at the Beach. The free flick starts at 5:30pm, with a Q&A to follow.
She-Magic-Legs: Cafe Du Nord is bringing three of San Francisco's finest together tonight for an unusually solid Tuesday night romp. First up is The She's, a shockingly young all-female quintet of shredders. Next up you got Magic Bullets, the throwback Smith's-inspired quintet that Pitchfork can't get enough of. Then to close out the evening is Dominant Legs, a Girl's side-project with a penchant for writing undeniably catchy pop tunes of the experimental indie variety. Who's calling in sick tomorrow!? Tickets are $10 and doors at 7:30pm.
Curtain Call: In his recently released memoirs, former Director of the San Francisco Opera Lotfi Mansouri "lifts the curtain" (their pun, not ours) on his fifty plus year history as a prominent member of the contemporary opera world. The retired Mansouri will be on hand tonight at the Museum of Performance and Design, where he will share stories, read from his memoirs and sign books. Event is free and starts at 7pm.
