The members of Coldplay have been Twit Pic-ing their way around San Francisco since last Sunday, according to the band's Twitter. They're playing at the HP Pavilion tonight and tomorrow night, and last we checked on Ticketmaster, tickets aren't sold out yet.

But if you really want to have an encounter with Mr. Gwyneth Paltrow and his chaps, you might just want to hang out around town..

Say what you want about their recent collaborations with Rihanna -- diehard fans willingly throwing down $90+ for a ticket might be in for some surprises at tonight's show. Coldplay's set list for last Tuesday's show at the KeyArena in Seattle included "Warning Sign" and "The Scientist," according to fan site wikicoldplay.com. (Oh, and if you go, make sure to put on the snazzy wristbands they're passing out when you get in. It's part of the show.)

Before this weekend's shows, though, it seemed like the boys of Coldplay spent an awful lot of time messing around in San Francisco. And whatever you think of their music, you have to admit that they pretty much suck at photography:

  • 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.'"
