List: Escape from Alcatraz 

Wednesday, Jun 30 2010

This is the time of year many San Franciscans get away from the Bay Area for some much-needed R&R. What do they leave the city to do?

• Stay in hotel rooms that are bigger and cheaper than their apartments

• Openly hate homeless people

• Act like they've never heard of composting

• Enjoy sex in a way that has nothing to do with gender politics

• Feel less alienated

• Ask people whether they're liberal or not

• Get somewhere in under 15 minutes

• Enjoy how friendly people are in the Midwest

• Think locally and act locally

• Eat Asian food that is less authentic

• Go for days without using irony

  • 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.'"
