By Hook or by Book 

Wednesday, Nov 7 2012
In our digital age, it’s easy to think of the library as a quaint reflection of a simpler time when paper ruled readers and newspapers ruled the news, but nothing could be further from the truth. The San Francisco Public Library has changed with the technology, while staying true to its mission of providing access to information at little or no cost. In addition to checking out paper books, you can text conundrums to librarians, get free homework help (even at the college level), check out e-books, CDs, and DVDs, and even borrow laptops at most branches. As long as there are stories to be told, the library will be there to help you find them. Today, the library offers a chance to make some of your own stories with "The Art of Storytelling." This class uses improvisation and vocal exercises to help adults learn storytelling skills, and is taught by self-proclaimed Queen of Procrastination and certified Laughter Yoga Trainer Bev Bender.

  • 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.'"
