SF Giants Victory Parade!
Monday, November 1 2010 is a date that will go down in history as the first time the San Francisco Giants have ever won the World Series--and the joyful mayhem of horn-honking, high-fiving, hugging, and flag-flying that erupted and continued well into the late hours out of the bars and into the streets last night was proof that most of us will never forget it. There was simply something beautiful about the spirit of it all--unifying and happy and giving us pride and hope with an act as deceptively basic as winning a baseball game. As we continue to ride the wings of glory this week, mark your calendars for the official victory parade and celebration-- following the route taken by the Giants when the team first came to SF from New York in 1958: starting on Montgomery and Washington, going southbound and continuing on Market St. to Civic Center Plaza-- where Gavin Newsom will present the team with the key to the city on the steps of City Hall (and presumably more joyful mayhem will follow). Date: Wed 11/3, Time: 11am-1pm, Place: Montgomery & Washington Streets to Civic Center Plaza, Cover: no cover, link More Info (JE)

Thievery Corporation + Massive Attack
Get yourself to the Greek this Saturday! One beautiful venue plus two amazing acts will turn your Saturday into an epic night of music and dancing. The Washington DC-based recording artist and DJ duo, Thievery Corporation, uses samples and their own recorded sounds to create eclectic soundscapes combining elements from genres like dub, acid jazz, reggae, Indian classical, Middle Eastern, and Brazilian. Joining them on the stage are another groovy duo, Massive Attack, that has a similar lounge sound, with an experimental and creative approach to composing music. These two acts come to the Bay Area every now and then, but don't usually perform together especially at a breathtaking venue like the Greek. Date: Sat 11/6, Time: 7pm, Place: The Greek Theatre (UC Berkeley), Cover: $55, link More Info (EB)
