Houseboats? Houseboats! 

Wednesday, Jan 14 2009
It used to be called Shit Creek, and not fondly — the shit was real, thanks to the city’s questionable talent for sewage treatment in the ’70s. Nowadays, however, the houseboat residents of Mission Creek are more affected by the odious view of hulking condo projects and the dusky rubble of never-ending development. But they still have their floating homes, which is nothing short of a community miracle, and they’ll have them for years, thanks to a lease that extends to 2055. Today, get your curiosity about these live-aboards sated once and for all at the Potrero Hill Home and House Boat Tour.

  • 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.'"
