Riding for Keeps 

Wednesday, Jul 9 2008
Every summer, the Tour de Fat bike festival rolls through many bike-friendly places — Portland, Austin, Durango — pitches some beer tents, and has a party. That's not the worst thing in the world. Today it comes to a strip of grass in Golden Gate Park. If you can manage it, you should ride there. The tour is run by volunteers from the S.F. Bike Coalition and sponsored by New Belgium Brewing, and all the bike people turn out for the bike parade, the rodeo, and pedal-friendly bands. Everyone goes away happy, some with new One More Bike T-shirts, and you won't even have to spit self-righteous venom or mass in an intersection on the way home.

  • 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.'"
