There's a new awareness campaign circulating social media which involves buckets and liquids — and this is one that will certainly leave a mark. 

Using wine bottles damaged in the Napa earthquake on Sunday, some North Bay residents have started daring each other to participate in the Wine Bucket Challenge. Riffing off the now-tired Ice Bucket Challenge that went viral on social media, the Wine Bucket Challenge is meant to raise awareness and some cash for people who suffered from the 6.1 magnitude earthquake that struck Napa just before 3:30 a.m. Sunday. 

No, the challenge is not to drink a bucket of wine. To participate, you pour a bottle of wine into a bucket and dump it onto your head. Afterward, post a video of your wine experience onto social media using the hashtag #winebucketchallenge. 

Then watch it go viral. Here's a video of some of the Wine Bucket Challenge pioneers:

  • 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.'"
