Greenpeace is sailing into the bay today, and will dock Rainbow Warrior III (the first ship was bombed in 1985, and the second retired after 22 years on the sea), at Pier 15. And if you want to climb aboard, you'll have the opportunity to do so this weekend and next -- and it's free.

An example of sustainable ship building, the public can tour the Rainbow Warrior (Sat.-Sun. 10 a.m.-5 p.m.) and partake in (what we assume are green-themed) activities aboard the ship on Sundays, Nov. 10 and Nov. 17. While docked, Greenpeace is also hosting an art exhibition and screening a film.

The Art of the Resistance exhibition on Nov. 11 (12:30 p.m.-5 p.m.) will feature over 70 works by social justice artists, and on Nov. 14 they'll screen Postcards from Climate Change, which features a look at how individuals across the U.S. are viewing and reacting to climate change; showings are at 6 and 8 p.m. and an RSVP is required.

If you attend any events don't forget your ID, the Port of San Francisco requires it!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
