Price-less Arts, Outdoors 

Wednesday, Oct 2 2013

Yerba Buena Night is kind of like a block party, but a bit more refined. The organizers put the flavor of the area into the event: It's fancy but welcoming, curated but freewheeling, and while it might feel expensive, it won't cost a thing — kind of like hanging out in Yerba Buena Park. The event spreads out over several blocks in the Yerba Buena arts district, and features three performance stages, a live video area, and several art installations. There is also a gallery walk with stops at 111 Minna, Modernism, and Chandler Fine Art, among others, and free entry to the Contemporary Jewish Museum and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. As for the performances, they include the intensely strange (in a good way) choreography and costumes of Bad Unkl Sista as well as the high-energy rhythms of closing act Grupo Samba Rio. And be sure to check out the circus performers from Supperclub in Annie Alley.

  • 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.'"
