Bethlehem A.D. Recommended

When: Dec. 21-23, 6-9:30 p.m. 2014
Price: free

Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and Hella Camels

Sure, other churches put up Nativity scenes for Christmas, but do their shoebox dioramas include real people portraying Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, and hundreds of Bethlehem denizens? Or include a biblical menagerie of sheep, camels, and donkeys? Bethlehem A.D. does, and the free attraction is completing its three-day run on Christmas Eve ... Eve. For 19 years, Tapestry Church has been staging a living re-creation of Bethlehem on the day Jesus was born with the help of hundreds of volunteers. Visitors who explore the miniature town are awarded "certificates of pilgrimage" as well as free coffee and doughnuts.

  • 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.'"
