New Navy 

Wednesday, Oct 1 2008
Fleet Week: you love it or hate it. The Blue Angels' rip-roaring "sound of Freedom" divides San Franciscans like an extremely loud knife through butter. Did we mention that it's loud? Whether you're a fan of the festival or not, you can educate yourself about where some of the noise is coming from by taking a Fleet Week Ship Tour. The free tour gets you topside access to the frigate USS Vandegrift and the guided missile destroyer USS Shoup, where you'll be shown around by crew members. Tours last about a half an hour and cameras are welcome. You should get a great view of the Bay -- and of where some of your tax dollars are going.
Mondays, Tuesdays, 12-4 p.m. Starts: Oct. 13. Continues through Oct. 13, 2008

  • 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.'"
