Bay Bridge Awesomeness Unveiled Last Night

Posted By on Wed, Mar 6, 2013 at 11:45 AM

If you didn't think the Bay Bridge could get any prettier at night, then you must see "The Bay Lights", aka that massive 25,000-light display that's giving the Golden Gate Bridge a run for its money.

Throngs of Bay Area folks found a good spot to watch as the world's largest LED light sculpture was unveiled amid the rain and wind and ecstatic "oohhhs" and "ahhs." The massive light structure will glimmer nightly until 2015, perhaps giving commuters a reason to take pleasure in that late-night traffic.

Check out the utter awesomeness that took place last night:

  • 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.'"
