What's the sound of one hand drinking a Jaeger bomb? You can discuss that koan and other intellectual riddles at the Philosopher's Club -- which is not a club at all, but rather an unpretentious local bar located immediately adjacent to the West Portal train station. A recent interior facelift has unfortunately polished away some of the scruffy older charm, but an amateur mural of famous thinkers still stares down from the ceiling, so be sure to raise a glass to Nietszche the next time you drop in.

  • 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.'"
