Dancing in the Streets 

Wednesday, Feb 23 2011
Four days in March are super fancy: Fat Tuesday in the Fillmore doesn't just mean the $300 costume contest at the Masquerade Ball on Mardi Gras proper, although it does mean that. But it also means kids' activities (including face painting -- why are kids with their faces painted even cuter than they are all the time?) and good food and lots and lots of music fanned out over the weekend and the ensuing weekstart. A really gorgeous-looking film -- Flags, Feathers, and Lies -- screens, jam sessions crop up, and on Sunday, there's a procession from St. John Coltrane Church to Marcus Bookstore. It all benefits the Village Project, which runs local kids' activities.

  • 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.'"
