As the Summer(ish) months start rolling in, it seems the possibilities for weekend distractions multiply exponentially. This past weekend offered an embarrassment of riches: comedy, music, art and bawdiness abounded.
Yo La Tengo
and the Sic Alps played the Fillmore Saturday and our writer Ian S. Port reviews the show while our photographer captured an amazing set of photos
The Blue Macaw was taken over by Clandestine Burlesque, the Twilight Vixen Revue and Sparkly Devil for a night of hard rock and hardly dressed dancers for Strip Rock and Roll
Meanwhile, everyone's favorite cartoon about a milkshake, a carton of fries and a meatball with dubious powers, Aqua Teen Hunger Force
, took to the stage in a live incarnation at the Regency Ballroom on Sunday night. Carla Selvin reviews the absurdity.

. Wine, cheese, mingling and - oh, yes!- art, abounded.
