Show Us Your É Beads! 

Wednesday, Feb 15 2012
The Fillmore district has long been the city’s go-to spot for music so slick and greasy it makes you feel like you cheated on a diet. So it’s only natural that a celebration dedicated to gluttony, recklessness, and debauchery -- Fat Tuesday -- finds the district a nice home to roost. Fat Tuesday in the Fillmore, part of the district’s sixth annual Mardi Gras celebration, kicks off with a free concert in Fillmore Center Plaza featuring Bobby Webb & Smooth Blues Band. Ten of the district’s signature clubs host live performances, complete with free Mardi Gras beads and signature cocktails. Other festivities include a New Orleans-style processional, street artists, costume contests, food and drink provided by the district’s favorite locales, and a masquerade ball. Who knew a taste of the Big Easy could feel so homegrown?

  • 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.'"
