Growing Pains 

Wednesday, Dec 8 2010
In late 2010, we're pretty sure mustaches are finally back out. Granted, a mustache is nothing like a trucker hat; it'll never be completely ridiculous. Esquire would have nothing to write about if that happened. But we think the participants in Mustaches for Kids SF might have had some fairly strong teenagery "I'm wearing the wrong thing on my face!" feelings to work through during the growing season (Nov. 11 to tonight), and that makes it all the more special. This year, they had to fight (possible feelings of shame) for the kids. And this year, M4KSF just might beat the impressive $90,000 it raised in 2009 to help low-income schools in the city, especially with gentlemen like Wade James Crowstache, who leads the money board at press time. At tonight's 'Stache Bash, the growers compete in events such as Guinness Beer Foam Retention Test and Mustache Haiku, as well as assorted feats of mustache strength, to take home the Sweetest 'Stache trophy. Despite the charity angle, don't expect a subdued affair: Mustaches bring out the T-Top Trans Am in everyone.

  • 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.'"
