Deathly fun at the de Young 

Wednesday, Oct 2 2013

As October continues and Halloween approaches, a slew of events will be popping up that are designed to startle, frighten, and otherwise petrify. But few of them will be able to match The Fright at the Museum Scavenger Hunt for thrills. It combines the age-old adventure of the haunted house, the recently trendy concept of a scavenger hunt for adults, and the cavernous creepiness of the de Young Museum into what may be the perfect date night for the Halloween season. The evening explores the dark side of the artist's heart, with a search through the museum for skulls, skeletons, monsters, and severed heads. There are also references to lethal ball games, appearances from cold-blooded killers, and a "lip licking party for cannibals." Yikes. Hire a sitter, because this one is for adults only.

  • 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.'"
