"I have seen grown journalists in tears," says Phil Liggett, "because they're frightened to death going down the mountains in a car." The world's most famous cycling announcer is visible for once, only one of the many behind-the-scenes treats of Chasing Legends, a new documentary about the Tour (need we add "de France?") Also included are seated, non-race interviews with the likes of George Hincapie, Jens Voight, and Mark Cavendish, plus coaches, organizers, and more. Tonight's screenings and happy hours benefit the San Francisco AIDS LifeCycle and Greater Than 1.

  • 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.'"
