We Built This City 

Wednesday, Jun 23 2010
We've heard the S.F. Pride Parade criticized. That it's too commercial seems to be agreed upon. And we vividly remember when no one would ever say that about "Gay Day." However, we must remind everyone that San Francisco's Pride Parade (theme this year: "Forty and Fabulous") is the biggest and the best in the world. It is, we swear! (Except on years when N.Y.C. really gets its act together.) Maybe beer, vodka, soda pop, more vodka, and real estate sponsorships can kill your queer buzz, but consider this: We have been to the Paris Pride Parade. La Marche des Fiertés LGBT de Paris is large, awesome, and betrannied, there in the Place de la Bastille. But even Gay Paree can't match our gay parade — take our word for it. Welcome, international visitors, to the gayest place on Earth! We're proud of it.

  • 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.'"
