How Weird Festival + More

Gold Gallants: After selling out two comeback Bottom of the Hill shows, recently reunited San Francisco veterans Two Gallants return to their DIY roots tonight with a free show at the Tenderloin's Ever Gold Gallery. The party is a duel celebration of Guy Overfelts' current installation at the gallery -- details of the interactive piece at Fecal Face -- and the release of the SF Arts Quarterly's Issue #5. Doors at 6 p.m.

Who's streets?: Another month, another chance to partake in a little anarchy at the loosely organized Critical Mass bike ride. The always controversial free Tour De S.F. meets up at 6 p.m. in Justin Hermann Plaza, and hits just about every city street, landmark and tunnel from there.

Doo Wop and You Don't Stop: The Knockout brings in promising newcomer Nick Waterhouse & The Tarots Saturday for a throwback doo-wop and R&B-inspired party. Featuring three unbelievably soulful singers and two dedicated sax players along with the typical allotment of guitars, bass and drums, the band is an absolute must-see -- video evidence here. Cover is $6 and show is at 10 p.m.

Dilated SOMA: Get a taste for the more unique side of our always eccentric city Sunday at the 12th Annual How Weird Festival. Held annually on Howard St. and 2nd St., the mini Burning Man fest -- think DJs bumping deep house on makeshift stages, lots of dilated pupils and a sea of thirty-something's sporting full on fur -- goes down form 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., with a string of late night after parties to follow. Technically free, but a $10 "donation" is borderline enforced.

Explosions in the Tweet: After blowing away the Twittersphere at their November Great American Music Hall appearance, post-rock legends Explosions in the Sky return to the Bay Area Sunday for another night of instrumental epicness. Tickets to their Fox Theater performance are $25 and doors at 8 p.m.

Going out can be a gamble, so why leave it up to chance? Stack the deck each Friday by peeping Play's Weekend Bender.
