Drunken Orchestra 

Wednesday, Jul 17 2013

Summering in the city is mostly about being extra precious at Dolores Park, and since you're already there every day looking for your friends "by the tennis courts," try enjoying something a little more refined than your PBR this Sunday. The San Francisco Symphony will be holding its annual free concert at 2 p.m., with a program that includes Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet and his waltz from the ballet Sleeping Beauty, as well as pieces composed by Beethoven, Copland, and John Williams. Come early and the PBR-drunk child in you, or your actual children, can interact with some real life instruments (and musicians) at the instrument "petting zoo" from 12:30 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. A modern orchestra is made up of around 30 different instruments — no time like the present to try your hand at the oboe or vibraphone!

Sun., July 21, 2 p.m., 2013

  • 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.'"
