This is where the Avengers will, presumably, assemble. Here's one of the reasons I prefer Marvel's slightly more real-world approach to D.C.'s more mythic feel: The most powerful Marvel superhero team's battle cry -- "Avengers assemble!" -- is less a stirring call to arms than a suggestion that everyone show up on time. It's just one step above "Avengers, check your schedules, and get back to my assistant with the three best times that you are available to stop Ultron!"

  • 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.'"
