Photos from the Dia de los Muertos Celebration

Posted By on Mon, Nov 3, 2014 at 8:45 AM

Last night people filled the streets of the Mission District in the area surrounding Garfield Square to celebrate Dia de los Muertos. For those unfamilair with the Day of the Dead holiday, it may seem a bit morbid, but it's in fact an uplifting time — a time to celebrate and remember loved ones who have passed on. Donning skull makeup and creating altars to remember those who have passed on, as dusk fell the crowds spilled into the streets for the precession to remember the dead. Check out all our photos of the event on our slideshow page.

  • 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.'"
