Music to Your Ears

Vanilla Pop Quiz

As of press time, Martini Grille has been handed 22 liquor-law violation citations, and its future as a bar is looking pretty shaky. (Remember, it only takes three strikes to get your license suspended.) But even with that uncertain haze hanging around the East Nob Hill venue, one thing's crystal: Vanilla Pop has left the building.

Warehouse 21 Re-Opening

It’s come back for your children!

But Warehouse 21 is back, and it's itching to crank up the volume. “It took a lot of endurance,” says Warehouse 21 Executive Director Ana Gallegos y Reinhardt. “But we did it, and we survived.”

Sonic Reducer

The Fratellis Here We Stand · Judas Priest Nostradamus · Wolf Parade At Mount Zoomer

The Fratellis takes guitar rock that’s better after a few pints and makes you drink ’til you puke. The glammy, peach-fuzz guitars and loudmouth vocals set the table for a good time. But the mid-tempo never speeds up or puts on the brakes, and it begins to sound as though The Fratellis gave itself 11 chances to make a radio single. Each attempt sounds eerily similar to the last. On second thought, you can probably find a better record to get drunk to. (SM)

Envision a happy Christmas morning: Kids waking up across the world and running with wide eyes to a collection of presents just for them. Here's the catch: Some kids can't have that.

EVENT HORIZON (Sunday, Dec 18)

Tilting to the Left, Nudging to the Right

Pinball Tournament • arcade games • Food Drive

As my friends in Rudest Priest say, “I may not get the high score, but then again I might/ I just wanna play a little pinball tonight.” And this Sunday, Dec. 18, it doesn't really matter if you get the high score, everybody wins because at this Pinball Tournament—sponsored by and held at Sister—is also a food drive. All pinball machines on site will be set to free to play from 4pm onward, so get there early and warm up your fingers. There's a $10 buy-in for the tournament, and while non-perishable food donations aren't required, I'm just going to say this: Don't be an asshole. You're not going to eat that canned corn.
