We are stoked to be in some seriously good company in SF Weekly’s All Shook Down list of 10 Things to do for under $10 this weekend!   Carnita personally plans on attending Popomo which is being put on by our friends at Fuzz & Kitsch and also Indie Mart where we’ll get to drink publicly outdoors and shop for cute shit made by local folks.  Dream, all dreamy.

Walken plays Hemlock Tavern this Saturday

Still covered in orange and black tickertape from the Giants parade? Got a hangover from all the revelry? Don’t stop believing S.F., hang on to that feeling. You can keep the party going through the weekend with these cheap local happenings. Here’s our list of 10 things to do this weekend for less than a knock-off Giants cap:

Hard French Season Finale @ El Rio (Sat.)
Hard French’s season finale will remind why you’re going to miss the daytime DJs-plus-barbecue club. Those clever organizers have assembled an all-star lineup of DJs you might remember from this past season of Hard French. This time, they’re all there together: DJ Carnita and DJ Amy Brown playing 1960s girl groups and 1970s soul, PRIMO from oldies night spinning soul, Lucky from Soul Party! playing Northern soul rarities, and DJ Bus Station John with fresh disco. ($5-$10, 3-5 p.m.)

Popomo by Kitsch and Fuzzz @ 111 Minna (Sat.)
Pick a team — Kitsch or Fuzzz. One a respected gallery and the other a respected dance night, the two will duke it out with dueling rooms as Popomo (post-post modern) at 111 Minna. If you choose the Fuzzz room, you’ll be treated to avant-garde music videos followed by guest DJ Boyz IV Men, then a montage of video selections by Snaps and Claps. If Kitsch is more your thing, your room will include mixed media installation and performance pieces along with music by First Family (formerly Shimomitsu), Great Willow and Yoshi Omori. The fashion theme for the evening is one-piece outfits: jumpers, dresses, leotards, catsuits, ponchos, jammies, you choose the garb. ($5, 9 p.m.)

Indie Mart @ Thee Parkside (Sun.)
For Indie Mart’s last outdoor hurrah this season, the organizers are throwing a proper party. Along with 85 vendors selling low-cost DIY treasures, there also will be live bands all day long, including locals The Stone Foxes. Plus you can get a mugshot in the Magnolia photobooth and nosh on barbecue and tater tots. Not only is Indie Mart the ideal place to shop for the upcoming holiday season, this also will be your last chance for a very long time — the next mart doesn’t happen until June of 2011. (Free, 12 p.m.)
