Being an irrational number, pi cannot be expressed exactly as a common fraction. And being an inanimate object, The Exploratorium cannot express how effing excited it is for its 25th Annual Pi Day. If you were a fraction as worked up as The Exploratorium, your love would be like pi — never-ending. Even if you aren't on the hunt to find a pattern in the famous constant, you'll still be able to learn from mathematical experts and enjoy events like a Pi Shrine Installation (something tells us it will be round), a Pi parade, and giant servings of real-life, delicious pie that's sweeter than 3.14. And with free admission all day, you never know who you might meet. Maybe someone who melts your heart like he's Magnum P.I. Maybe you'll hit it off and you can pi him a drink. Start a non-repeating conversation that goes on forever. Who knows how it ends? So go to the nerd side. They have pi.

  • 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.'"
