Turn Your Ugly Christmas Sweaters into Holiday Cash with Thrift Town's Contest

Posted By on Mon, Nov 19, 2012 at 7:30 AM


Every year around Christmas, we take time to get together with our family, count our blessings, eat lots of unhealthy food, and ... compare sweaters. If you're anything like us, you have one or two or 10 gaudy and revolting holiday-themed sweaters lurking in the depths of the closet or dresser waiting for the winter season to be worn in all their hideous glory.

  • 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.'"
