    4/20: Getting High With Cypress Hill
    Cypress Hill will play the Warfield tonight.

    There is no better band to celebrate 4/20 with than Cypress Hill. Not only do the hip hop legends make reference after reference to marijuana in their music but the guys are actually political activist for the legalization movement in California. Cypress Hill be going insane in the membrane (all that smoke will do that to you) tonight at The Warfield, 982 Market St. in San Francisco, at 8.

    If green is not your thing, you could head down to Zellerbach Hall on the UC Berkeley campus and hear the soothing Senegalese sound of Baaba Maal at 8 p.m.

    There is no Edward Cullen or the dreamy vampire who plays him but the Fox Theater in Oakland will still host Vampire Weekend for a second tonight at 8. Feel free to rip them for preying on a bunch of teenage girls' desire to throw cash at anything that professes to love blood, but the boys can actually play a little and they are marketing geniuses as well.
