Four Barrel Coffee (375 Valencia, at 14th St.) is throwing itself a party for its two-year anniversary. A big one. There are balloons and cake, a photo booth and music, free coffee for everyone ― hence the line out the door ― and pony rides. (Thanks to Broke-Ass Stuart for the tip-off.)

The pony.

You only have until 2 p.m. to ride the pony. It appears to still be fresh, primarily because of the size of the riders, who are in the 25-to-40-pound range. The free coffee lasts until 4 p.m., when, like most parents of two-year-olds, the exhausted staff put the kids to bed, sweeps up, and pull the bottle of whiskey out from under the sink.

  • 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.'"
