Tour de NorCal 

Wednesday, May 9 2012
This year’s Amgen Tour of California features new challenges and breathtaking scenery — spanning more than 750 miles in just eight days. Today, San Francisco is the second stop on this Tour de France-style competition, the nation’s largest and best recognized cycling race. Starting at Marina Green, participants traverse a 49-square-mile course, past the Legion of Honor and through Golden Gate Park. Cyclists continue along Highway 1 through parts of Pacifica, Daly City, and Half Moon Bay. A pre-race festival offers fans the opportunity to mingle with elite athletes, Olympic medalists, and world champions. Festivities include a health and fitness expo, cancer awareness education, family activities, food, and entertainment. Now in its seventh year, the race has continued to serve as a free event dedicated to promoting the sport of road cycling, healthy living, and bike safety.

  • 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.'"
