Friday, June 28th

 

Company Theater Performance

Orpheum Theater, San Francisco

7:30 PM Ages: All

$40


PHONE RINGS, DOOR CHIMES, IN COMES COMPANY.


Winner of 5 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical, COMPANY “strikes like a lightning bolt. It’s brilliantly conceived and funny as hell” (Variety). Helmed by three-time Tony Award-winning director Marianne Elliott (War Horse, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Angels in America), this revelatory new production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s groundbreaking musical comedy is boldly sophisticated, deeply insightful and downright hilarious.


It’s Bobbie’s 35th birthday party, and all her friends keep asking, Why isn’t she married? Why can’t she find the right man and isn’t it time to settle down and start a family? As Bobbie searches for answers, she discovers why being single, being married, and being alive in the 21st-century could drive a person crazy.


COMPANY features Sondheim’s award-winning songs "You Could Drive a Person Crazy," "The Ladies Who Lunch," "Side by Side by Side" and the iconic "Being Alive." Let’s all drink to that!

AGES & ADVISORIES: Recommended for ages 13+. No children under 5 allowed.

SF Pride Parade

Civic Center, San Francisco

All Weekend, Ages: All

Free


You’ll find a bunch of ways to celebrate Pride this weekend, but if you’re looking for the biggest celebrations, head to Civic Center on Saturday and Sunday for music and performances. That part is free, but if you want, there’s also an “enhanced experience” with access to an exclusive area by the main stage with a bar, bathroom, and lounge ($75). Or, if you prefer your Pride with an open bar and three rooms of entertainment, you can also get tickets to the Pride Party at City Hall (starting at $100). And don’t miss the Parade on Sunday morning. It starts at 10:30 a.m. with over 200 contingents marching and floating down Market Street from the Embarcadero.


 

Sunday, June 30th

 

Chicano Batman

Stern Grove, San Francisco

12 PM, Ages: All

Free


Latest album from SoCal's Chicano Batman, Notebook Fantasy is a body of work that sheds all inhibitions and reveals the sublime expanse of the LA-bred band’s musical imagination. In the making of their 5th full-length, vocalist/lyricist Bardo, guitarist Carlos Arévalo, and bassist Eduardo Arenas doubled down on their hyper-creative tendencies, discovering new dimensions of their prismatic musicality while infusing their lyrics with a soulful yet unflinching honesty.


Notebook Fantasy, produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Erykah Badu) and partly recorded at the historic Sunset Sound, veers away from the subtler sensibilities of their previous works and embraces a much bolder sonic approach a move that involved executing their vision with a newly heightened mastery of their musicianship. With its dizzying constellation of song forms and sounds, including arena ready anthems, symphonic love songs, psychedelic space odysseys, and freewheeling hybrids of cumbia and funk —Notebook Fantasy endlessly channels moments of lightning-in-a-bottle inspiration into songs that push into fantastically strange terrain yet remain rooted in raw emotion. The album is the latest triumph in an extraordinary career that began at local dive bars, growing their powerful live performances by touring with artists like Alabama Shakes, Portugal The Man, and Jack White, playing Coachella numerous times, and most recently earning a headlining spot at L.A.’s iconic Forum in summer 2024.
