Sunday Boozy Sunday 

Wednesday, Sep 9 2009
With more than 40 handcrafted beers from seven local companies, Brews on the Bay means you can drink, seriously, while ostensibly probing the mysteries of hops. It also means you can get drunk on a ship, just like a real crew, while nodding your head politely as S.F. Brewers Guild members muddle on about their craft, holding glasses up to the sunlight to catch the amber hues. As the day wears on, it means taking a break to fortify yourself with ribs, courtesy of Oola, and becoming intimately familiar with the path to the head. It also means a slow, all-day reevaluation of the band Zepparella (playing Saturday) or Zoo Station (today), followed by a sudden, bleary, late-in-the-afternoon awareness that the band you are listening to is your new favorite band, they’re so fucking awesome, so danceable, and though you’ve never danced to a U2 tribute band aboard a ship in the fading afternoon light (not to mention an all-girl Zeppelin one), there you are.
Sat., Sept. 12, noon; Sun., Sept. 13, 1 p.m., 2009

  • 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.'"
