One of the most endearing aspects of Pixar's incredibly charming digital 3D flick UP is how Oakland ice cream institution Fenton's Creamery (4226 Piedmont at Entrada, Oakland) is one of the chief draws back to land for the balloon-flying main characters, a place of great sentimental importance. Stop by the shop next Tuesday, Nov. 10, from 5-8 p.m. to celebrate the Blu-Ray and DVD releases of the film. Pixar animators will demonstrate how they drew the characters, with contests to win the film, Pixar prize packages, and free ice cream from Fenton's.

There'll also be a "Spirit of Adventure" sundae served for that occasion and that occasion only. We don't have any further details on flavors, but if you truly have a spirit of adventure, you can roll with anything.

  • 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.'"
