Traverse the Districts 

Wednesday, Apr 14 2010
Few recognize San Francisco as a city of wilderness, but consult Google Maps, satellite view: Patches of wild land blooms, like moss on subway bathroom tile. Earth Day in the Twin Peaks Bioregion and Eco-Corridor drops you into that, with a two-to-three-hour hike covering the native areas of Golden Gate Park, Mount Sutro, Twin Peaks, Glen Canyon, and more — and it does so crossing only two busy streets. You can barely do that in Tahoe. And as every student knows, no wilderness hike is complete without ongoing wilderness lecturing, and that’s courtesy of Nature in the City's founding director and hike leader Peter Brastow. Stops include a visit to the California native garden when summiting "Blue Mountain" (Mount Davidson) and the Haight-Ashbury Neighborhood Council's Native Plant Nursery in the park.

  • 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.'"
