Squid Pro Quo 

Wednesday, Feb 13 2013
Octopuses, unlike Octo-Moms, prefer to live outside of the spotlight. They are reclusive creatures who prefer dark caves, rock formations, and when they are small enough, sometimes even clam shells. But just because these eight-limbed cephalopods wish to stay in the dark doesn’t mean you also have to. Biologists are here to spill the ink on this fascinating aquatic creature during Octopalooza. The Aquarium of the Bay hosts daily octo talks, dissections, and octopus enrichment activities during its weeklong affair. In addition, Octopalooza promises extra-curricular events like a special Bad Movie Night screening of Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus (Feb. 20), up close and personal interactions with the Aquarium’s own giant Pacific octopus, and a Humboldt squid dissection led by Squid4Kids (Feb. 23).

    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.'"
