  • The 2010 Eat Real Festival saw a 40 percent increase in attendees over 2009.
Organizers of this year's Eat Real Festival calculate that 100,000 Bay Area food seekers showed up in Jack London Square over the three days of the event, which wrapped up Sunday. That represents more than a 40 percent increase over the approximately 70,000 attendees who showed up at last year's inaugural Eat Real. Combine that with the 30,000 who showed up at the one-day SF Street Food Festival on Aug. 21 (more than twice as many who showed up last year), and it suggests the Bay Area's passion for street food.

  • 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.'"
