Best Buy

When you buy a plant at the S.F. Botanical Garden, you get something extra: status. Buying one at the garden's Lunar New Year Flower Market offers something even greater: bountiful good fortune for the coming year. Today, pick up traditional New Year celebratory flora such as quince and peach blossoms, red azaleas, citrus fruit trees, orchids, gladiolus, and camellias, then stick around for the shows throughout the day. Featured performances include the tumbling and spinning of the Red Panda Acrobats, formed in 1990 in China, and lion dancing and drumming by the S.F.–based Chung Ngai Dance Troupe.

  • 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.'"
