Do you dread going to work? No, no, we know you don't hate your job. After all, we're all so lucky to have jobs at all in this economy, yadda yadda. But do you hate the physical act of getting there? Sitting in traffic? The weird stains on BART seats? The Muni rider who thinks you should listen to Kid Rock, too? Then this is your chance to chuck all that and join the robust masses who actually enjoy their daily commute. Bike to Work Day is the perfect opportunity for the fed-up to mount up and try pedaling to their place of employ for the very first time. Convoys of more experienced riders usher greenhorns downtown along the trustiest routes. Along the way, pass oases of that which workers love: free stuff. Twenty-six "Energizer Stations" throughout the city offer coffee, snacks, and other swag, gratis. There's free bike parking at a downtown corral, and a free free raffle may net you a new bike or cycling gear. After you put in an honest day's work, head over to the Bike Away from Work Party and lift a pint and swap stories with your new friends. You look so much cuter wearing that helmet on a bike, anyway. Everyone on the bus thought it was weird.

  • 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.'"
