Fourth of July in San Francisco: Hot and Fiery

Posted By on Tue, Jul 5, 2011 at 12:30 PM

We warned readers on Friday that San Francisco wasn't allowed to light fireworks -- or blow anything up for that matter. And there's good reason for that. we saw what happened over in the East Bay where fireworks were responsible for a house fire and an accident where one man severed his finger off while having a little too much fun on the Fourth.

But San Francisco managed to celebrate America's Independence without blowing off any limbs-- that we know of.

Here is a quick glance at what we saw on on the Fourth of July.

  • 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.'"
