We were just out for a walk in the Mish on Sunday, and somehow we ended up surrounded cooing at children and puppies, side-stepping ostentatious bicycles, and even donning a pair of early '90s roller skates. It all happened because of a little thing called Sunday Streets, a monthly(ish) event involving the blocking off of streets in varying neighborhoods so people can just sort of hang out.

This kid was thoroughly enjoying his reign over 24th Street.

This troupe of roller-bladers performed a surprisingly agile rendition of Michael Jackson's "Thriller."

On some street corners, people were playing music. On others, people were mounted on weird bikes. Then there were the people mounted on weird bikes that happened to also be playing music.

No San Francisco event is complete without foofy pink clothing and a political statement.

The next Sunday Streets will be Aug. 22 in the Outer Sunset.

  • 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.'"
