This coming Friday afternoon, around 4:53, when you've succumbed to manually refreshing your Inbox or drooling away the remnants of your weekly cycle, you should consider a happy hour jaunt over to the Rickshaw Stop for the first in a new monthly series of concerts called Afternoon Delight.

On the third Friday of every month, the creators of Afternoon Delight will be presenting a FREE, all ages show at the Rickshaw featuring two of San Francisco's up and coming bands, as well as "mountains of edible treats" and drink specials. This week's show kicks off the series with a great line-up of The Lovely Public and The Mantles.

Like a cousin to SF art rock heroes Deerhoof, The Lovely Public explore a pastiche of off kilter rhythms, jagged prog and compact psychedelia while still maintaining a contagious pop edge. The Bay Bridged had the pleasure to interview these talented folks back in March. You can listen to the full interview here. The Mantles, with their blend of reverb-drenched garage and fuzz-ridden jangles, seem the ideal companion to open this early evening. Log out. See you there.

Show begins at 6:30pm, All Ages, FREE.
