Since cupcakes have become the icon of celebration here in the U.S. (just ask any third-grader), it makes sense that there would now be a bicycle race that incorporates them, right? The Tour de Cupcake is an alleycat-style race, meaning that the emphasis is on taking part, rather than winning (and there might even be a prize for last place). All levels of riders can join, and at each checkpoint cupcakes will be provided. The more cupcakes you gobble down per checkpoint, the more time bonuses you're awarded (no tossing aloud!). The very sweet event is organized by the Bike Kitchen, the co-op cycle repair shop; proceeds will help fund the shop's move to its new space in January.

  • 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.'"
