Your Friday Guide for September 5, 2008

It's back, the new and improved Friday Night Guide (see if you can figure out what the improvement is)!

Cosmic Gypsy Happy Hour with DJ Mak at the W Hotel
Get your lounge groove on with DJ Mak in this swank hotel bar.
6PM - 8PM
W Hotel, 181 3rd Street x Howard

KillSwitch Happy Hour at UndergroundSF
Techno happy hour, this week with Nikita.
6PM - 10PM
UndergroundSF, 424 Haight x Webster

Charlie Horse at the Cinch
Best place to go out and have a cheap drink while being entertained by drag queen antics. Music by DJ Dirty Knees and Bearzbub is more rock and new-wave oriented, but at least it won't interfere with your conversation. Check out my reviews of Charlie Horse at The Cinch.
9PM - close
The Cinch, 1723 Polk Street (between Clay and Washington)

Sick! at The Matador
Just found out about this techno night that started up in November in the location of the old Arrow bar. Residents D Spurlock, Jeffrey Allen, Jonathon Neil, Kuze, and Meekrob. Check out my review of Sick!
9PM - 2AM
Matador, 10 6th Street x Market

Monthlies and One-Offs

Garth and Jeno Back2Back at Club222
San Francisco house legends Garth and Jeno in one of the best intimate dance spaces in the city.
10PM - 2AM
Club 222, 222 Hyde Street

Lucky Pierre at The Stud
It's the last one kids, come enjoy some electro bangin' with DJ6 and Donimo, strip poker with Artemis Chase, and fun fun fun.
10PM - 3AM
$5 before 11PM, $7 after
The Stud, 9th x Harrison

Slavoj Zizek at The Herbst Theater
One of the big academic stars from my grad school days, expect deep thoughts, a heavy slavic accent, and maybe some Alfred Hitchcock references.
Herbst Theater, 401 Van Ness x McAllister

Ellen Allien and Modeselektor at Mighty
Okay, this is probably the biggee for the night, I only wish it wasn't in a club with such a shitty sound system where I actually enjoy hanging out. Oh, and it's expensive as fuck. I think I'll just treasure my memories of seeing both artists back at the Rx Gallery.
9PM - "after hours"
$27 pre-sales at Tweekin, prolly $30 at the door
Mighty, 119 Utah Street x 15th
