Less trafficked by tourists than Vesuvio's across the street - but just as cluttered - Specs' bar does indeed feel like a museum, with years of collected trinkets and tchotchkes covering every surface. If the mood strikes, sometimes bohemian old-timers will quietly prop themselves at the piano and plunk out a few instrumental tunes to add subliminal music to the constant hum of conversation.

  • 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.'"
