Hot Tickets: San Francisco

Every Tuesday at noon, PST, Brown Paper Tickets will post upcoming events happening in the San Francisco Bay Area. Here are hot tickets for events coming up. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Thursday, February 9 | SF IndieFest – Two weeks of “the best in independent, alternative, and subversive cinema from around the globe.” Here’s a rundown of what you can expect from the organizers:

Here’s a brief example of the extreme excellent-ness of this year’s program: we’re showing THE FP, no doubt the best post-apocalyptic dance-fight video game movie you’ve ever seen; CLOWN, the most sick and wrong (and hilarious) Danish buddy film you’ve ever seen; BULLHEAD, Belgium’s Oscar candidate for this year and probably your first introduction to Euro-backwoods crime culture.  We’re showing EXLEY, the latest underground masterpiece by Canuxploitation pioneer Larry Kent. And a sweet local comedy called JUKO”S TIME MACHINE, just in time for Valentines Day.  Though, if you prefer to spend Valentines Day yelling your lungs out to classic anti-love Power Ballads, put LOVE BITES on your calendar.

Great film, fantastic parties and a roller disco? Sign us up!

Friday, February 10 | Black Choreographers Festival: Here & Now – Non-profit Art Organizations AAAPAC and K*Star*Productions have joined forces to present a comprehensive festival celebrating the diverse artistic expression within the context of African and African American dance and culture. The festival strives to offer multi-faceted programming that addresses the needs of artists: networking, mentoring, training, outreach, and the community: affordable/accessible programming, cultural enrichment and arts education. For details on performances visit the festival’s website. Read the rest of this entry »

TODAY | Learning from the Netherlands, Part II: Amsterdam’s Bike-Friendly Streetscapes: Join Leah Shahum, Executive Director of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, David Chiu, Board of Supervisor’s President, and Bart Van Bolhuis, Consul General for the Netherlands, as they share lessons from living and studying the extraordinary bicycling experience of Amsterdam. As record numbers of people are biking in San Francisco, how can we learn from the Netherlands’ relatively recent success restoring their pre-WWII walkable bikeable street interface. How can SF catch up with the widespread demand for improvements and connect the city through bikeways and safe streets that help more people of all ages discover the multiple benefits of cycling? Find out more as these city leaders share their ideas on how San Francisco can become easier place to shop, live and play and meet the city’s goal of 20% of trips by bicycle by 2020.

Friday, November 18 and Saturday, November 19 BrokeBACH Mountain: The Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco‘s season opens in November with a program entitled “BrokeBACH Mountain.” This show features music by J.S.
