    11/2: VOTE!, Throwback Synth and Philip Glass Performed

    What you're doing? You're VOTING. Get out to vote -- not only to further democracy and this grand experiment known as the United States of America, but also because your boss has to let you. And you can get coffee while you're out. Here are the polling precincts for the Bay Area. Be heard!

    Author/artiste and parent of new-wave pop, Gary Numan, is at The Fillmore tonight. Already a star in the U.K. before 'Cars' became a benchmark single for synth ... well, sometimes fan sites say it best: "Even after new wave had petered out, Numan's impact continued to make itself felt; his dark, paranoid vision, theatrically icy alien persona, and clinical, robotic sound were echoed strongly in the work of many goth rock and (especially) industrial artists to come."

    Get your 'classical' on at Herbst Theater tonight, taking in a little Robert McDuffie as he performs some Philip Glass. From San Francisco Performances site: "Philip Glass is an icon. And this towering presence in American music has forged a special connection with San Francisco Performances' audiences. Now, SF Performances brings you his Violin Concerto No. 2, The American Four Seasons in its worldwide premiere tour. Performed (and commissioned in part) by Robert McDuffie, “one of the finest violinists of our age,” alongside the outstanding Venice Baroque Orchestra, Glass’s contemporary work is boldly juxtaposed against Vivaldi's archetypically Baroque The Four Seasons in what promises to be one of the most unique programs you'll see this year!" Tickets range from $40-$65.
