Weekend Go-Tos for August 5, 2016

Mixed media composition by Jeff Ray, who will be performing Friday night at Grace Cathedral.

It’s Friday afternoon and the weekend is just hours away. In case you’re not prepared, we have a few suggested events happening around the Bay Area tonight through Sunday.

This evening, the labyrinth at the Grace Cathedral will ring with modern orchestral music from the Meerenai Shim Quartet along with Qualia Choir. There will also be audio/visual collaborations presented by Gabriel Dunne and Stephanie Sherriff, and more. All performances this evening aim to explore the interconnections between ourselves and built structures, including physical behavior of sound and light within Grace Cathedral itself. Open your ears, eyes tonight starting at 7:00 p.m. at Grace Cathedral, 1100 California Street, San Francisco.

Angry ghosts are disrupting business at a tech startup based in the Tenderloin, and the company's young CEO hired a Santeria priest to purify the office. This isn’t a headline, but it is a plot point in the play, “CampoMaldito,” now playing at the Tenderloin’s Exit Theatre through August 13th. If you’re a resident of the Tenderloin, there’s a chance you’ll qualify for a free ticket to the show. All of the details like tickets and show times, for locals and non-locals alike, can be found at theexit.org.

It's time to get old-timey, this Saturday at Alameda's Lincoln Park.

You don’t need a time machine to take you back to the late 1800’s, because this Saturday, Alameda’s Lincoln Park will be transformed into an Edwardian picnic and dance party. You’re invited to bring your own picnic spread: food, beverages, and of course, a blanket. Late Victorian or Edwardian costume is also admired but not required, and make sure to bring shoes you can dance in. The picnic goes from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 1540 High Street in Alameda. Full details can be found at peersdance.org.

Is there an event happening this weekend that you'd like folks to know about? Feel free to add it below in the comments section.
