Star Eyes brings her dark-breaks charm to Lights Down Low


Totally tooting our own horn here, but it's gonna be neato: the Guardian is helping to host a live music series at the Redwood Room in the Clift Hotel, and before you roll your Black Swan eyes at the thought of upscale cocktail costs and folks who "party like a rock star," check out the lineup. The kickoff this Saturday features SF faves Francis and the Lights, who update Echo and the Bunnymen with an Interpol twist, and DJs Bridget St. Breeze and Bertie P., he of the late, lamented EpiscoDisco monthly at Grace Cathedral. Upcoming? Men on Feb. 1, Cass McCombs Band on Feb. 4, and awesome Afro-popsters Fool's Gold on Feb. 12. I've always been a fan of the Redwood Room's stunningly warm interior and not-so-douchey vibe, so this will be a great chance for newbies to check it out.

Sat/15, 9 p.m.–1 a.m., free with RSVP to Clift Hotel, 495 Geary, SF.
