Put it in Park

Sometimes it seems like we have it so good around here. Even our volunteer work is relatively glamorous -- no cleaning up the local toxic dump or working with corny religious charities for us! (Even our religious charities are cool, as in Glide Church.) Instead, we can hoof it out to the gorgeous reclaimed military installation and throw our shoulders into habitat restoration. This might include tearing out old invasive plants (usually in the summer months), or replanting native species (winter). If you're espcially lucky, you might do the delicate, important job of seed collecting, which probably makes you feel like a rad scientist-Earth-goddess-glow-being. It's all organized by a coalition of park services and the Presidio Trust, who together have been running the former post since it demilitarized in 1994. Yep, we have it good around here.

  • 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.'"
