Weekend Go-Tos for March 4, 2016

The elusive and massive White Elephant Sale returns to Oakland.

Sure, it's going to be stormy outside this weekend, but we've lined up some unique and fun, indoor events to check out this weekend in the Bay Area.

Tonight, over 20 Bay Area artists pay visual tribute to the many faces and phases of David Bowie, in the art show Moonage Daydream. This show seeks to grapple with the life (and recent death) of the legendary recording artist, as well as the sci-fi, pop culture, and radical identity themes present throughout his oeuvre. In it’s opening party tonight, the show will also feature a special musical performance by Lady Stardust, San Francisco’s (almost) all-female David Bowie cover band. Festivities run 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Roll Up Gallery in SF Public Works, at 161 Erie Street in San Francisco. Check out the featured artists at moonageartshow.com.


It’s the most wonderful time of the year... White Elephant Sale time! The annual two-day event takes place this Saturday and Sunday at their warehouse on the Oakland Estuary. Expect vintage clothing, jewelry, collectibles of all nerdy makes and models, as well as housewares, furniture, and yes, even kitchen sinks. All sales benefit the Oakland Museum of California. To get details about transportation (you probably won’t want to drive, unless you need handicap accessible parking, which there will be at the venue) head to whiteelephantsale.org. There, you’ll also find a printable map to help you navigate around the sale too. 


For years, Lost Weekend Video on Valencia Street has held underground comedy events, literally under the store in their Cinecave theater. As the store moves into its new home at the Alamo Drafthouse on Mission Street, just blocks away, your final chances to enjoy programming in the actual cave are dwindling. This Sunday, the cave presents its last round of TV Repair, a monthly marathon of weird TV from seasons past. Pop in anytime between 12:oo p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to catch episodes curated by Lost Weekend's Jeremy Wheat. That’s this Sunday afternoon, at 1034 Valencia Street. Find out all details for the event, including what TV shows will be featured, here
