David Bowie releases comeback album
David Bowie only makes music when he wants and how he wants. Luckily for us, he wanted to make music again. This Tuesday, March 12, Bowie will release his first album since 2003. To get a taste, check out his recently released video for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight),” featuring Bowie and the remarkably similar-looking Tilda Swinton as a bourgeois married couple whose lives get eerily turned upside down.

Watch the video for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” here.

Pi Day at the Embarcadero

I hate to be the one to tell you this, but St. Patrick’s Day is only the second best holiday this coming week. On Thursday, March 14 (a.k.a. 3.14), San Francisco’s Exploratorium will celebrate the elegant ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, otherwise known as “pi.” Head over to San Francisco’s Pier 15 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. for an “infinite series” of activities, including the installation of a new “Pi Shrine,” a “Pi Procession” and a sampling of mathematicians’ favorite dessert: pie, of course.

Frightened Rabbit plays the Fillmore

Scottish indie rockers Frightened Rabbit play the hallowed Fillmore stage today. Get ready for them to play anthems from their robust new album Pedestrian Verse, blending heartfelt and charming instrumentation with frontman Scott Hutchison’s thick Scottish warble.

Watch the music video for their song “The Woodpile” here.
