If anybody finds a lost yellow parakeet…

(Thanks, Roya.)

Emo night (on a Saturday night for the first time) tonight at the Knockout!

Here’s the skinny:

Saturday night edition you guys!

Come join us on Saturday August 29th over at The Knockout.

Drink specials, a photo booth and all your favorite emo tunes on vinyl brought you by DJ Goonie Walsh & guests.

Post your requests! #emonightsf

RSVP and invite your friends!

(And if you want a little taste of the history of the emo scene in the Mission, head for this years-old Mission Mission post “All about emo.”)

Go see some pro improv tonight or tomorrow in the Mission

I haven’t actually seen this show yet, but I know Chris Libby personally and he always cracks me up. Plus it’s at StageWerx, a fun little theater on Valencia near 16th that you’ve probably never been to. Here’s the deal:

HUGE is Chris Libby and Anthony Veneziale – two improvisers, two guitars, infinite possibilities. Join us for our signautre long-form comedy improv show with music! The audience throws out suggestions and we turn those into songs, scenes and laughter. No two shows are ever the same.

Get tickets here.

Throwback Thursday: Photographs from the Mission the night the Warriors won the NBA Finals

I mean this is the problem with film photography right? You don’t get the stuff developed and it doesn’t end up on your Tumblr til like 2 months after the fact. Great shots though, by (sometimes) local photographer genkai_trip.

Haçeteria, one of the best dance parties SF has ever known, returns this Saturday night!

Haçeteria’s been on hiatus for most of 2015, but they’re back this Saturday night, and it’s gonna be a big one:

After a bit of a haçiatus, the crew returns with an old friend and former guest, the one and only Bobby B. Now residing in New York, Bobby’s got a new bag of tricks he’ll bring to the stage for a very special live performance of new jams and classic Bobby bouncers. Continuing the lineage of Haç homies such as Roche with “A Night at the Haç,” Bobby B’s latest 100% Silk release nods back to the days of classic clubbing with his new single “Manchester.”

Biographical Info:

"I joked that living in the Mission would be the end of me. And there were nights where it felt like the case.

One night I went out with my friend Allan to the bar that no one goes to on 16th Street, where I lost half my drink and money on the dance floor. Later we skated down 16th to Evelyn Lee, where I fell off my board and landed on my head as the 22 bus sped past behind me. A sobering moment. At the bar, I sulked and nursed my wounds until Allan put on Amy Winehouse’s 'Valerie.' We danced, he dipped me, and I felt better."

— My pal Valerie, writing about life in the Mission
