You'll Have the Hangover of the Irish 

Wednesday, Mar 12 2008
Ha, ha, we're just kidding with the cynical headline: The St. Patrick's Day Parade is as much family fun this year as it is every year. It's huge! Irish dance schools, bagpipe contingents of even-paler Scots, the Irish Wolfhound Rescue Trust, and all the marching bands you could wish for head to Civic Center Plaza for a beer fest. Oh, oops, for a fun time. Plus, for anyone keeping track of Roman Catholic calendar minutiae, Saint Patrick's Day is a movable feast this year for the first time since 1940.

  • 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.'"
