August 13: Living in Space at the Bay Area Discovery Museum

Posted By on Wed, Aug 4, 2010 at 9:00 AM

As part of the Bay Area Discovery Museum’s “Summer Sunset” series, the kid-friendly museum stays open late this Friday so kids can experience the current exhibit, ‘Living in Space. A complete replica of an international space station, “Living in Space” shows kids how to sleep, work, exercise, eat food and get around in zero-gravity; fun videos and interactive games such as docking a shuttle or controlling a space arm are sure to delight budding astronauts. Bring a blanket for picnicking as the Short Attention Span Circus performs juggling, magic and contortions, and the retro sounds of the 1960s—truly the “space decade”—emit from the DJ booth. It’s out of this world on Friday, Aug. 13, at the Bay Area Discovery Museum. 557 McReynolds Road, Sausalito. 5pm to 8pm. $5–$8. 415.339.3900.

August 14: Keak da Sneak at the Phoenix Theater

Posted By on Wed, Aug 4, 2010 at 9:00 AM

To properly describe the vocal style of rapper Keak da Sneak, we’d have to write some standard-issue crit-speak like “possessed of a casual flow, Keak peppers his rhymes with Bay Area slang and a choppy sense of rhyme.” Then we’d ask you to take this paper, rub it face-down in the gravel for 10 seconds, and read it again. That’s Keak da Sneak. The rough-around-the-edges Oakland-based rapper is best known for his star turn on E-40’s hyphy anthem “Tell Me When 2 Go,” but his own hits, such as “Super Hyphy” and “White T-Shirt, Blue Jeans and Nikes,” show he’s a true hip-hop original with a scruffy-voiced sensibility that few can touch. He lights the place up with D-Lo, J-Stalin and Roach Gigz on Saturday, Aug. 14, at the Phoenix Theater. 201 E. Washington St., Petaluma. 8pm. $25. 707.762.3565.
