  • Not making any jokes about zombie Michael Jackson. Not gonna do it.
In honor of the one-year anniversary of Michael Jackson's death, San Francisco will today be overrun with flash mobs performing the King of Pop's most well-known choreographed number. Perhaps ironically, "Thriller" depicts Jackson and others literally returning from the grave to dance, dance, dance.

Here's a schedule of where you can catch Bay Area Flash Mob's footwork:

Dancers will be undertaking a "flash mob medley" of Jackson's greatest hits at 5:30 p.m. at the Powell Street cable care turnaround; at 6 p.m. at the Ferry Building; and 7:30 p.m. at 401 Castro (in front of the Chevron).

Thriller flash mobs will shake off the funk of 40,000 years at 4 p.m. at Civic Center; 5 p.m. at Union Square; and 6:30 p.m. at Justin Herman Plaza. 

Ola Ray, by the way, is available. Just saying...

  • 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.'"
