Four Wheels Bad! 

Wednesday, Nov 28 2007
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition's annual fund-raiser isn't all about bidding on stuff like a 1981 Raleigh Super Course bike or a date with Ross Mirkarimi. No, amid the abundant microbrew, the company of your fellow two-wheel maniacs, and the incredible art show, the Extra Action Marching Band makes this a benefit that transcends its purpose. Put another way, fund-raisers are often boring, but Winterfest sounds really good, because in very concrete, practical terms, wherever the EAMB goes, the good times follow. People have been known to fly through the air, be healed, and spontaneously learn to dance while listening to the famous rock brass gang. The event's art exhibit is also reason enough to go — much of it features bicycles — and includes contributions from painters Val Britton and Suzanne Husky and sculptor Kirk Stoller, and many others.

  • 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.'"
