California Academy of Sciences Turns One 

The new California Academy of Sciences opened its doors one year ago this weekend, and one thing has been missing: the big cats. This weekend, we get the big cats. Specifically, a mountain lion, a lynx, and a caracal (?). We also get the Nigerian Masquerade Drummers, the Parangal Dance Company, the dancing troupe Loco Bloco, and the Flying Angels Chinese Dance Company, all performing on a stage in the Academy's west garden all weekend long. And we also get a new planetarium show, Journey to the Stars, which takes us through the life and death of stars. It was a good year. The celebratory acts portend a strong second one.
Sept. 26-27, 2009

  • 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.'"
