Fitness for What? 

Wednesday, Mar 16 2011
We didn't see this one coming: The St. Patrick's Day Fitness Crawl. On the face of it, it seems all wrong -- the middle of March in a drinkin' town ought to be reserved for unhealthy activities, not show-offy strength prances. The St. Patrick's Day Fitness Crawl contains no corned beef and cabbage, no whiskey, no beer, and no green food coloring. Instead, prepare for calisthenics, "cardio," boxing two ways, and, God in Heaven, yoga. Before you panic, here's a way to spin it so it makes more sense: This bootcamp-style ordeal could make it possible to eat more than you ordinarily would during the rest of the weekend. And when you eat more, you can drink more! Yay! The St. Patrick's Day Fitness Crawl has now been recuperated for the purposes of debauchery.

  • 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.'"
