Things to do in SF tonight: retro-computer films, theremins, art shows, and more
I’ve been emailing all my friends about all of the cool shit happening in the Mission tonight, so I figured I’d should round it up in a blog post too. There’s usually plenty of fun stuff happening, but tonight seems to be extra packed with nerdy goodness.
Project: Pimento at the Rite Spot
One of my favorite lounge bands, Project: Pimento, is performing a pay-what-you-want show at The Rite Spot from 9-11:15pm. They cover lounge and jazz classics and feature an amazing theremin player. We loved their last set at the Rite Spot and HIGHLY recommend checking this show out tonight. I even made a flier to promote it.
Retro-Tech at Oddball Cinema
Oddball Cinema shows great collections of vintage 16mm and 35mm films. Tonight’s theme is all about high tech computing of days gone by. Plenty of futuristic short films, documentary, and animations. Including Compute-Her Baby, Signal Syntax, and Micro World (featuring Shatner). Tickets are $10 and this show might sell out early. Show starts at 8, so get there by 7:30… then stop by the Rite Spot afterwards!
Rick Lucey’s art opening at Mission Comics
I met Rick many years back through the SF Cartoonist Conspiracy. I love his work, particularly is old-school Kirby-esque super hero stuff. I even hired him to create the art for my upcoming Lonely Dungeon game. He’s doing an art opening at Mission Comic’s tonight from 6-9pm. So get there early, then head to Oddball Cinema, then hit up the Rite Spot. You can do this, San Francisco!
Avery Burke at The Temporarium
Avery is member of Corpus Callusum and owner of The Temporarium (our favorite tiny little coffee shop over on 22nd and Guerrero). He’s putting together an acoustic show tonight in his tiny space, which might be packed, but worth it. I really dig his solo ep from last year, Songs For Lisa. Tonight’s show at the Temporarium is 3 acoustic sets by local performers and runs from 7-10pm. I made a flier for this show too.
