The Pilgrimage: Gustine 

This month marked the 100th Festa do Divino Espirito Santo, in Gustine, Calif., a small agricultural town in the middle of the state largely populated by immigrants from Portugal's Azores archipelago. And you can't have a Festa do Divino Espirito Santo without a bullfight capping the event.

Several days of celebrations, parades, and cattle auctions culminated on July 22 with the fight — which was marked by the unusual, but not unheard-of, occurrence of a bull leaping into the stands. Photographs by Alexia Aubault and Joe Eskenazi

  • 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.'"
