LAST CHANCE: ‘BigPicture’

August 1 - November 2
The 45 striking images in BigPicture, now on display at the California Academy of Sciences, were culled from more than 6,000 submissions from nature photographers around the world. In order to provide deeper insight along with captivating imagery, the curators have included commentary from the Academy's scientific researchers alongside each of the award-winning photos. Free with admission to the Academy, BigPicture runs through November 2.

LAST CHANCE: ‘Sweeney Todd’

October 8 - November 2

‘Partenope’

October 15 - November 2

‘Harry Thaw Hates Everybody’

October 15 - November 16
It's a story that seems just too scandalous to be true, but the saga of "Gibson Girl" Evelyn Nesbit and her battling suitors was the shocking impetus for not only the "Trial of the Century" (confidently declared in only 1906), but the 1955 movie The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing, and now this Shotgun Players production of Laural Meade's Harry Thaw Hates Everybody.

‘Party People’

October 17 - November 23

Bob Dylan

October 28 - 30

‘Testament’

October 29 - November 23
From playwright Colm Tóibín comes this portrait of the Virgin Mary, originally staged on Broadway as The Testament of Mary. The story of a mother whose son, as the description notes, "has been taken from her by men she regards as fanatics," the play has faced criticism from Catholic groups for its so-called blasphemous portrayal. The indefatigable Carey Perloff directs and Seana McKenna stars in this production by A.C.T.

‘Bad Dads V: An Art Show Tribute to Wes Anderson’

October 29 - November 22
For five years now, Spoke Art has hosted Bad Dads, an annual show collecting dozens of artists working with one assigned theme: the films of celebrated director Wes Anderson. No strangers to cultural phenomena, Spoke Art has also hosted art show tributes to Martin Scorcese and, perhaps most virally, the jaw-challenged cat Lil' Bub. But Anderson seems to bring out the best in participants, as evidenced by the image of Margot Tenenbaum by artist Edith LeBeau (pictured above), or its online gallery of past submissions.

‘The Table’

October 30 - November 2

October 30 - November 2

The straight-up power-pop Inner Sunset was produced by the Allen Clapp of The Orange Peels (also appearing).

Total Trash Halloween Bash 2014

October 31 - November 1
It's not uncommon for local bands to "dress up" on Halloween as other, more famous bands, but this year's Total Trash Halloween Bash promises a very large tongue in the proverbial cheek. Shannon and the Clams appear as "Metallica"; Yogurt Brain as "Smashing Pumpkins"; Pookie and the Poodles as "The Donnas" and more. Hosted by Hunx (pictured) as "Gayracula," the two-night shindig takes place in two venues in the East Bay: Leo's Music Club (Oct. 31) and Eli's Mile High Club (Nov. 1, with headliners the Phantom Surfers).

William Gibson

October 31 @ 1:00 pm
You couldn’t pick a better date than Oct. 31 to attend a reading by William Gibson, because in the modern world, the horror which he imagines is entirely possible. The celebrated author of such work as Neuromancer and the Wired feature Disneyland With the Death Penalty has a new book out, The Peripheral, his first in four years.

Iceage, Helm

October 31 @ 9:30 pm

‘The Hole in the Head’

November 1, 2014 - February 8, 2015

Pomplamoose

November 1 @ 8:00 pm
It'd be easy to classify Pomplamoose simply as YouTube sensations, but there's more to this duo than meets the eye. Known for their covers of hit songs ("Single Ladies," "Beat It," "All About That Bass"), their appeal transcends the type of novelty so common on the video-hosting platform. Not only are their visual ideas fresh (see: "Video Killed the Radio Star" or "Happy"), their original musical arrangements are consistently unique, usually altering entire chord structures and other key elements from the original recordings they decide to tackle. Live, the two perform with a full band, alternating between stoic calm (Nataly Dawn) and unleashed excitement (Jack Conte) in a mix of covers and originals. Both alumni of Stanford, the couple return for a special concert on campus.

Johnette Napolitano

November 5 @ 8:00 pm

‘Keith Haring: The Political Line’

November 8, 2014 - February 16, 2015
The deYoung presents more than 100 works in this major retrospective of Keith Haring’s prolific, yet sadly short career. Focusing on Haring’s response to nuclear disarmament, injustice, and inequality, the exhibit showcases many different types of works, including large-scale paintings, sculptures, and the artist’s famous subway drawings. Curated by Dieter Buchhart.
