Where's Dom?

As you can see by its title, The $2,904 New York City to San Francisco Motorized Vehicular Tournament takes pains to not depict itself as a Cannonball Run–style road race in which finishing first matters. The first hint is the "$2,904," which means competitors can spend no more than that amount on the cross-country trip, and that includes the price of the car, fuel, speeding tickets, and "Little Debbie snack cakes and Moxie soda." (But drivers can and should spend as much as they want on Buffalo wings and safety equipment.) The "race" starts at a secret location on Nov. 10-11 — yes, everybody gets a full day to cross the starting line — and ends whenever they get here. Tonight's finish-line party features the artwork of Craig Lima.

  • 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.'"
