March. If it comes in like a lion, it’s supposed to go out like a lamb (This weekend, February went out with a bang, literally – with another shooting on Capp St. and holy mother a car crashing into the Wells Fargo on 22nd and Mission.) Goodness knows you can’t ask for a more roaring start to a month than a free show by a washed up pop star. Chris Isaak sings songs you know by heart, even if you don’t know who Chris Isaak is or recognize his coiffure — and he’s playing an all-ages no-cost show at Amoeba. Yep, we know that’s not in the Mission. But a free show by a vintage rocker is worth the trip.
Tuesday, take a break during the day and head to the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts for the 22nd Annual Solo Mujeres juried exhibition. The show (theme: future landscapes designed by women) is up till March 27 and includes 16 artists’ work. $5 admission.
Wednesday is the Eve of Justice rally and vigil. At 5 pm on the night before the California Supreme Court begins hearing arguments for and against Prop 8, supporters of gay marriage will gather at Market and Castro.
On Thursday, head to John O’Connell High (2355 Folsom) from 6 to 8 pm to say what you think about the search for a new city police chief.
And if none of that sounds good to you — at least keep an eye out for this greenish blue Le Sport Sac wallet. Can’t beat the reward.
