THE KINGS: They may not be the master of your domain by they are the Kings of Leon. The Lynyrd Skynyrd wannabes will play the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, 99 Grove St., in San Francisco at 8 p.m.
SELF PROMOTION. It's hard for us to get out to as many shows as we would like but we will definitely be at the Santigold show tonight at The Warfield, 982 Market St., in San Francisco at 8 p.m. The band will have their best face on as the crowd rocks out and we snap their pics. Be sure to say hello if you see us.
STAY AWAY HOWARD: Doug Stanhope is best known for his stints on "The Howard Stern Show" and shockingly enough offended the heck out of people while doing it. Now the comedian comes to The Improv, 62 S 2nd St., in San Jose to step out of Stern's mighty shadow. Good luck.
