Mex I Am: Dance & Opera Gala 

When: Thu., July 31, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $15-$25
Anyone living is San Francisco will tell you that the Mission is amazing. And despite its changes in the last few years, the Mission will always be the place where Latin American artists, foodies, families, and students gather in a tight-knit community. This summer, a different part of town takes a moment to honor various traditions that this eclectic district offers. Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the Consulate General of Mexico in San Francisco team up for MEX I AM — Live It to Believe It, a collection of shows exhibiting the very best of contemporary Mexican culture through opera, folk dance, jazz, and cinema — to name a few. The six-day series features a killer lineup, including performances by Elisa Carrillo, a soloist of the prestigious Berlin State Ballet, Natalia Lafourcade, a two-time Latin Grammy winner, as well as talks with NASA’s José Hernández and the United States’ first Mexican-American female Treasurer, Rosario Marin.

  • 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.'"
