Stair Masters 

Wednesday, Mar 17 2010
Is "running stadiums" more popular now that it was featured on Lost? If Hunky McHunkersons Matthew Fox ("Jack") and Henry Ian Cusick ("Desmond") do it, maybe you should too? (That both characters are standard-issue bonkers should not be considered here; it's not the stadiums' fault.) At the Stadium Stampede, perfectly well-adjusted citizens run up and down the intimidating stairways of the sports arena, up and down, up and down. They're all perfectly well-adjusted, as previously mentioned. We know this because the whole exercise exists to benefit the Good Tidings Foundation, which rebuilds Little League diamonds, takes fourth-grade classes on all-expenses-paid field trips to an art center, and helps seniors with college tuition. Spectators are welcome; admission includes lunch and a case of the warm fuzzies.

  • 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.'"
