:: Mural Haight ::

There's some mural hub-bub over at Haight and Fillmore across from Upper Playground. It seems a couple enthusiastic artists asked the person working at the store if they'd like a new mural to replace the one that's been fading over the last 30 years on the side of the building. Yes was said and the mural work began. The problem was the neighborhood preferred the old one as well as the owner of the building. People got upset and it was decided that the original mural would be repainted over this new one. All is well except there's some talk of mural permits?!

The pair of Mission of Burma tickets for Saturday's show at The Independent goes to Brandon Burke. He had the best reason as to why he should get them. He wrote: I have unbalanced tinnitus; louder in my right ear than my left. (True.) Hoping a few minutes at this show without an earplug in the left ear will even it out a little... Best answer hands down... Most people wrote boring shit like: "My mom is in town and used to roadee for them"... or the odd on from a SF female: "Two things get me off. One is Mission of Burma and two is walking naked into my roommates room when he's not there and peeing in his plants"... oooookkkkk.

:: Soul Clap Dance Off Friday ::

Wanna get down to some soul music and watch me make an ass out of myself? NYC's Soul Clap & Dance Off hits 111 Minna Friday the 13th and I'm going to be a dance competition judge with the leader of the 1st Satanic Church, Matt Gonzalez, and others @midnight. Should be interesting, and from what I've read about the night, it sounds like these guys know how to do it right. Fri 11/13 9-2am $5
The Soul Clap and Dance-Off is not only New York Night Train's biggest and most famous party, but one of the NYC underground's more popular monthly nightlife institutions. The first all-soul night of subterranean maximum rock and soul DJ Mr. Jonathan Toubin, the concept is elegant - all night dancing to wild amazing 45s and a dance contest in the middle.

The party has grown to sell out every month - draw nearly 500 paid patrons while remaining true to its DIY aesthetics - garnering acclaim in practically every NYC publication, featuring judges from every edge of music from Monotonix to MGMT - and now spreading around the world -from Calgary to Mexico to Israel.

Also tonight: A Show About River Travel at Progressive Sharing, Eric Veit at AHN/VHS, and a "duel show" at Copy and Vox (Thanks Dave).

The Monkees aren't exactly known for their creative spark par say, but when their show was cancelled in '68, they were actually free to get a bit creative and to make fun of themselves in the process with the film HEAD (co-produced by Jack Nicholson)... The film was actually intended to destroy "The Monkees"/ to do something completely different and to tarnish the idea of the clean wholesome commercially accepted boy band. You'll love it.

49 Geary does their 1st Thursday thing this evening. If you're downtown from 5:30-7:30, stop in 49 Geary as the sprawling 3 stories host many galleries with varying degree of goodness, but you're bound to find something great like HOLLY ANDRES PHOTOS @KOCH GALLERY

In the Tenderloin near Union Square would be AARON ELIAH TERRY & KORAKRIT ARUNANONDCHAI @EVER GOLD <-- they always host interesting and fun shows worth checking out. Not familar with tonight's show, but it's worthy a visit, and after that show, continue on to...

THE NOVEMBERISTS' GROUP SHOW @111 MINNA <-- featuring works from Alex Braubach, Alex Case, Catto Houghton, Chris Stokes, Christopher Butler, David Fallis, Dusty Genard, Ian Robert Mullen, Jesse Gidcumb, Kelly Nicolaisen, Matt Gonzalez, Mike Steffen, Ryan Coffey, Sean Brimer, Tim Schafer, Yoni Matatyaou... 111 Minna's show run till 2am, so make that your last stop... or that's what we like to do.

Most importantly, CHECK THE CALENDAR and see something that seems interesting. Take a chance and discover a new gallery or space. As they say variety is the spice of life, and there are a lot of shows opening this weekend. Grab some friends, put a bottle or two of wine in a backpack and explore!

:: Ari Marcopoulos SUNDAY ::

Ari Marcopoulos is showing photos (Within Arm's Reach) at the Berkeley Art Museum until Feb 7th. This Sunday he'll be giving a presentation of his photographs, and following that Marcopoulos will join NYC-based hip-hop pioneer and historian and former graffiti artist Fred Brathwaite; skateboard legend Keith Hufnagel; and noted painter and graffiti artist Barry McGee in a freewheeling conversation that contextualizes the exhibition while exploring cultural intersections. Could be interesting... 3pm - DETAILS
Born in Amsterdam in 1957, Marcopoulos came to New York in 1979 and quickly became part of the downtown art scene. He got a job printing black-and-white photographs for Andy Warhol, and two years later, tired of spending so much time in the darkroom, he found a position as a studio assistant with the photographer Irving Penn.
