it's a bird, it's a plane, it's... you

From the patriotic style of Superman and Captain America to the brooding revenge of Batman, superheroes hold a special place in the heart of American culture. After all, hasn't everyone stared out the window and dreamed of being super? Of flying through the air or foiling bank robbers instead of sitting behind a desk? Well, we can all live out that fantasy this weekend at the Superhero Street Fair. Okay, so it won't give anyone spidey-senses or X-ray vision, but it will be a good party, and a chance to channel our inner superheros. Participants are encouraged to personalize their costumes to create custom-made superheros, and for the truly enthusiastic, there are activities like the "Hero's Courage" climbing wall, a Cosplay costume contest and a superhero boot camp. There is also a super-helping of music. The festival features seven stages, run by 17 different sound camps, with tunes ranging from house to dubstep to reggae. Participating sound camps include Beat Church, Symbiosis and Housepitality.

  • 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.'"
