  • Santa Skivvies Run

December, as fun and cheery as it can be, it always manages to be one of the most stressful months of the year. It seems like every winter holiday tradition is really just a chore disguised as something fun. So if you're looking for something to take your mind off the baking, decorating, card sending and air traveling waiting for you in the coming weeks, here are some San Francisco events that'll help you make it until Christmas.

Santa Skivvies Run
For those of you undaunted by the chilly San Francisco air, why not register for the annual Santa Skivvies Run? Wearing as little as possible, participants will run from the UN Plaza to the Castro, with all proceeds benefitting the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. All registered runners will receive a free Santa Hat.
Santa Skivvies Run, December 6; learn more and register to run here.

A.C.T.'s A Christmas Carol
The American Conservatory Theater's annual production of A Christmas Carol will kick off December 5 at the Geary Theater. Their production of Charles Dickens' classic story is a holiday tradition, and you're sure to have a great time, even if most of us already know how the thing ends.
For tickets and showtimes, visit the A.T.C. box office site.

West Coast Craft
Leather goods? Blown glass? Hand-sewn neckties? They've got it. This craft show features some of the best work of West Coast designers, artists, and artisans. Stop by Fort Mason to browse, snack, and find that one perfect gift for whoever you buy gifts for.
West Coast Craft 2014, December 6-7, Herbst Pavilion, Fort Mason, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., free.

Matthew Robertson: Rooms
Check out this solo exhibition at Art Attack SF. Artist Matthew Robertson's work tends to focus on a somewhat off-kilter collision of abstraction and realism, and his use of animal subjects make his work lively and unique. A donation (benefitting the SF-Marin Food Bank) is all it takes to RSVP for the opening reception, and 10 bucks will enter you in a a raffle for a Robertson's original.
"Matthew Robertson: Rooms," Art Attack SF, 2722A Hyde.

  • 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.'"
