One of the things I look forward to on Tuesday is the arrival of Flavorpill SF, a free email magazine that serves as a cheat-sheet of interesting upcoming events. Each week, their writers and editors listen to tons of cd's, comb through stacks of magazines and trade lots of email with people even hipper than them to find the best upcoming cultural happenings.

Their taste is eclectic and they recommend diverse events from jazz performances to art openings to DJ parties to old films, listing only the best few per day. Highlights for this week include: the 8th annual SF Indie Film Festival (all weekend, schedule); the Thursday release party for this unusual book; and the Friday Of Montreal concert at the Great American Music Hall. This week's issue also has a glowing review of Cat Power's new album and lots of goodies from the masters of bleep and noise at Warp Records.
