Boys and Ghouls 

Wednesday, Oct 17 2012
Is it us or is Halloween getting scarier? Sure, the holiday is ripe for spooky stories, corn mazes, and haunted houses; but so-called family activities seem to be getting more ghoulish with each passing year — chainsaws, decapitation, and gore (oh my!). San Francisco always bursts with things to do and places to go on Halloween, but for some parents, finding a safe, fun, and kid-friendly place to celebrate the holiday is a real fright. The solution: Ready your costumes and unfurl those candy bags for J-town’s family-friendly Spooktacular Halloween Party & Trick or Treat. This exciting annual haunt features child-ready games, activities, prizes, and more. A hands-on craft corner gives attendees an opportunity to decorate mini pumpkins and treat bags. This year’s event also boasts face-painting, removable tattoos, a bounce house, and a mall-wide trick-or-treat. (Children in costume are invited to visit participating retailers for candy and other surprises.) The J-town celebration is not only good old-fashioned fun, but is sure to be a real howl for kids, dads, and mummies alike.

  • 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.'"
