Bloom Town 

Wednesday, Feb 6 2013
100 rare and historic erupting magnolias are at their peak right now and you could be there to see it. The San Francisco Botanical Garden invites you to witness this fragrant riot of vibrant pink and white flowers, one of the most distinguished collections outside of China, while readying for the Lunar New Year. There's no better way to celebrate the Year of the Snake than to catch this magnificent floral spectacle. Learn about Chinese herbal medicine, make your own succulent vertical garden, or take moonlit strolls; this and much more is part of the garden's special programming in February. This weekend is especially ripe with festivities. On Saturday, you can see lion and folk dances performed by the Sunset Recreation Center Dance Troupe, learn to make lanterns with magnolia petals, and pot your own plant. Today the excitement continues with the Family Lunar New Year Celebration, including tai chi performances, sword play, dragon dancers, and a special storytime for kids at the library.

  • 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.'"
