Bike Kitchen Anniversary Party 

Wednesday, Sep 17 2008
The Bike Kitchen operates on the fishing principle: give a man a bike, he rides for a day; teach a man to repair his bike, and he rides for a lifetime. But the truly awesome thing about this do-it-yourself repair co-op is that it's not just the men doing the repairing. Since its inception in 2003, the Kitchen has made it a point to include women, transfolks, genderqueer peoples, and others who've traditionally been kept away from grease-monkeying in its egalitarian approach to free-wheelin'. A $5-per-day or $40-per-year membership gets you full access to tools and parts, along with lower prices for classes. Tonight, the Kitchen celebrates with a 5-Year Anniversary Benefit Party that'll help fund its move to new digs this winter. With music from Geographer, Excuses for Skipping, Maldextra, and Argentina; mechanics competitions; and $1 drinks, this is an event to unite spokes people of all kinds.

  • 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.'"
