Where: San Francisco Ferry Building, North Arcade

When: Thu., May 5, 5:30-8:30 p.m.

Cost:

The rundown:
What's your usual routine for Cinco de Mayo: after-work beers, cheap tequila shots, Taqueria San Jose under glaring lights, Tums, a couple glasses of water, and a sweaty night under the covers? Might as well make the money you'd otherwise spend on rounds of Tecates go to a better cause ― CUESA's efforts in sustainability education, for instance. This Cinco de Mayo, Marina margarita slinger Tacolicious is organizing a benefit celebration that's more about quality than sheer slamming, featuring food from Nopalito, Chaac Mool, Mijita, and Tamales los Mayas, among others. There'll be wine and beer, plus cocktails featuring tequilas from Don Julio, Tres Agaves, and Herradura, to name three. Hey, you'll still end up thirsty and thrashing under the covers, but at least you'll be sweating out quality booze.

  • 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.'"
