A Sweet Ride 

Wednesday, Jul 1 2009
With the May arrival of Three Twins Ice Cream, the last piece of the puzzle fell into place — the Ice Cream Sunday Ride is a go. It’s a tour not to be taken lightly. Children, gathering around the organizers’ feet, are being told they are not invited. Let us repeat: Kids are not allowed on a bicycle ride to ice-cream stores! Pee-wee could murder someone. But Pee-wee never met Humphry Slocombe, whose flavors like foie gras and government cheese can produce tears. Actually, the real reason kids have to stay home is not because the food is demanding, but rather the route: After dabbling around the Mission for a bit (Slocombe, Mitchell's, Bombay), riders swing up to the Lower Haight and the Twins before heading deep into SOMA, hooking into North Beach, and finishing at Gelato Classico Italian.

  • 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.'"
