Friday: Bust out the bellbottoms for First Friday’s Friday Night Fever-themed art walk. Fabulous Sin City Roller Girls will be hanging out and doing skate demos with anyone who is interested. Be prepared for a blast to the past (even if you weren’t alive at the time) with ‘70s-inspired style, music, and art. 5-11 p.m.
The Canadian dance-punk/electro duo MSTRKRFT’s third album Operator was released in July—seven years after their second album. Catch the DJs tonight at Bunkhouse or risk waiting another seven-year span. Doors open at 9 p.m. Tickets $15-$20.
Saturday: If you didn’t get enough of The Wiz from NBC’s revamped broadcast last year, catch one of two live performances of this cult classic at the Smith Center. Las Vegas-based Broadway in the H.O.O.D. promises that the set, music, choreography, and 250-member cast of local performers will have the audience dancing in the aisles. Tickets $19-$69. Showtimes at 2 p.m and 7 p.m.
Say goodbye to summer by seeing Smash Mouth at Fremont’s 3rd Street Stage. The SoCal band responsible for the son in Shrek’s opening scene will be playing the last show of Fremont’s free summer concert series. Enjoy the nostalgia brought on by classic hits like “Walkin’ on the Sun,” and “I’m a Believer.” 9 p.m.
Monday: Celebrate Labor Day at the Container Park! After an entire weekend of live music in the evenings, Monday will showcase the live music of Richard Mann, Miles Van Blarcomm, and Mikey Tucker. For the kids (and kids at heart), go for body paint or a funny balloon animal or hat provided by Balloons with a Twist.
