Many Single Ladies and Gentlemen 

Wednesday, Sep 4 2013

It's been five years since Beyonce's ubiquitous female anthem "Single Ladies" came out, but here in San Francisco we're still working our backsides to solidify its legacy. So much so that devotee dancers are celebrating B's birthday in the streets with a four-song flash mob on Sept. 7. Dance classes started in July and continue through the first week of September, so that those who'd like to participate can learn how to 迭un the World with the rest of Sasha Fierce's army. "I-don't-need-you" power pop is always going to resonate with the masses; Beyonce and the other two long-legged ladies of Destiny's Child had already proved that with megahits "Independent Women" and "Survivor,"迫but when Beyonce served up the fiercest riff on the song "Mexican Breakfast" (featuring the Bob Fosse choreography that inspired "Single Ladies"), her dancing shot to another level. YouTube toddlers, Justin Timberlake, and Joe Jonas followed. Catch the last class and join the mob.

  • 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.'"
