A new weekend is upon us, we must take advantage. Here's what SF has up its sleeve (Sunday we're supposed to get some sun, so get thee to Golden Gate Park, etc):
Hipster Craft Fair
Twice a month, local artists and designers get to set up shop at The Canvas, one of the city's first cafe(slash)art gallery(slash)bar(slash)whatever. They call it Feria Urbana (Urban Fair), and if you need to buy gifts for your loved ones or yourselves, or just want to see what people are creating (see photo above), go check it out on Saturday, 12 - 5pm. Admission is free, expect a lot of overpriced silkscreened t-shirts (oh and irony, lots of irony).
Based on a Not-True Story
The film adaptation of JT Leroy's book comes out tonight and is playing at the Castro. SFist reviewed the movie last week, and that's as close as most of us will get to seeing it... but we thought you should know it's here.
Tonight we've got quite a variety to chose from (thanks to Flavorpill's weekly emails, we know what we're missing when we wind up at Delirium every, single weekend):
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (701 Mission at Third) is presenting BAN 4 Performance II. Bay Area Now's second show this season will include a jazz vocalist and composer, a performance piece about a Korean shaman ritual ceremony, a political dance theater piece, and a "dance theater journey into the world of the gender outsider." They had us at "dance theater journey." 8pm, admission is $17 (student, senior) to $20.
You love indie rock and can't wait for Noisepop? Tonight you can go see Earlimart OR Metric, but you probably knew that already. Earlimart is at The Independent at 9pm, and Metric is at The Fillmore, also at 9- you must chose! Or you can go see Ghostface Killah at The Mezzanine (also at 9). Saturday seems way slow for concerts, but Beth Orton will be at the Fillmore...
