Maybe you didn't make the trek out to the the playa for Burning Man this year. Maybe you love S.F. even better when all the Burners are gone. Well, we got ace photographer CuriousJosh to bring us back these amazing GIFs from Burning Man in hopes of changing your mind. They may not be quite the same thing as spending a week in Black Rock City, but we think they'll give you a taste of what you missed.

Snakes or Ropes is a type of fire poi (a tethered, swinging weight) with uses a straight length of flaming Kevlar rope attached to a chain.

  • 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.'"
