Rock On 

Wednesday, Jun 3 2009
Remember the sassy fad among 12-year-olds of forming a W with the fingers? Stood for “whatEVER?” This is how we feel about intense athletes, especially the people who make the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon one of the most popular such torture sessions in the country. They are teh crazzeee, as the new sassy fad of LOLcats would have it. However, they and it are very beautiful, and we have nothing bratty to say about hauling a make-Martha-proud picnic out to the municipal grounds and ogling. From such a vantage point, audiences can expect to view the beginning and end of the swimming section, as well as the ultimate finish line.

  • 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.'"
