Ride the Lightning 

Wednesday, Jan 21 2009
We don’t know if it’s the latest thing in AMA Supercross, but it’s the only thing we know about AMA Supercross: celebrity-designed tracks. For this year’s season, star riders like Jeremy McGrath, Ricky Carmichael, and Mike LaRocco have piled the dirt just so. Truth be told, their tracks look a lot like the regular tracks on the tour, like the one disrupting the Giants' home turf today. But, again, we know nothing about AMA Supercross, save that it’s a helluva thing to watch, like a motorcycle race in a phone booth.

Qualifying runs start at 12:30 and the main event starts at 7 p.m.
Sat., Jan. 31, 7 p.m., 2009

  • 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.'"
