Get Drunk in Prison (No Toilet Pruno Necessary!)

Fess up — you always wanted to roam around the Rock at night, stumbling between the cells with a Kentucky bourbon buzz and challenging the ghost of Al Capone to a knockdown fistfight. Right? Sure, everyone does. On Saturday, June 21, you can make your dream come true (and conveniently avoid any pagan hippies swirling away the summer solstice) by taking an alcoholic boat cruise to Alcatraz. The boat leaves from pier 33 at 6 p.m., DJ A.M. spins beats while you sample the hosted liquor bar onboard, then you get to roam (OK, be led on tour) around the Rock until midnight, when you return to the boat for more booze and DJ David Carvalho. Ducats cost a crisp $250, but it's a charity benefit for cancer research, so if you've got the extra cash and some formal attire just lying around, kick down for a ticket at Or, y'know, you could just bum around with the patchouli kids in GGP like you did for last year's solstice. — J.

  • 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.'"
