Say "Da" 

Wednesday, Feb 13 2013
Take a trip to Russia without leaving the Bay Area. Come and experience live performances by Russian dancers, vocalists, cultural enthusiasts, foodies, and musicians in the 25th annual Russian Festival, a celebration of Russian-American food, music, and art. The festival brings a taste of Moscow right outside your door, and includes a blini booth, tea from antique samovars, a face-painting booth, delicious food, and, of course, a vodka-tasting bar. Catch the Georgian Children Dance Ensemble (all the way from the Caucasus) on Friday and The Golden Cockerel — a famous opera based on Pushkin's 1834 poem — on Saturday. The grand finale, however, is today and includes the music, dancing, and humor of Russian Folk Ensemble Limpopo, followed by the acrobatics of Nino's Rhythmic Gymnastics Club and performances by the First Russian Ballet School, Russian Center Dancers, and the Firebird Dance Ensemble.

    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.'"
