If These Streets Could Talk 

Wednesday, Apr 25 2012
We love mysteries — deep down we harbor a passion to join Scooby Doo and his gang to discover the truth. Now we have the chance with a game that covers much of the Mission District and employs detective skills and navigational ability. It starts with a mural painted by the indigenous Miwok tribe on the back of a Mission Dolores wall. The mural was unearthed and revitalized in recent years, but its meaning is still largely unknown. Were the Miwok converts to Christianity? Or were they warning others of what was to come? It’s time to button up those bell-bottoms, put on that baggy sweater, and satisfy our hunger for adventure with The Mi’-wok Prophecy. This five-hour event sees participants grouped into small teams armed with an informational packet containing puzzles, riddles, and a map of the playing area. Using these tools, players visit coffeeshops, bars, and other Mission District sites that contain clues to the historical significance of the area. Attendees collect “secret items” and deliver them to a “Ceremony of Consumption” where the prophecy is finally revealed. The secret items also serve as ingredients to a potion that all get to enjoy — unless they’re under 21, in which case virgin samples will be provided. Everyone is encouraged to join; however, children are asked to be accompanied by an adult.

  • 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.'"
