Trippin' Out in a Winter Wonderland 

Wednesday, Dec 22 2010
Poet Maya Angelou is old, but she has the childlike wonder thing right where she wants it: "This is what I am learning, at 82 years old, the main thing is to be in love with the search for truth," her Facebook status reads at press time. If you wish to raise up your small fry to be like Dr. Angelou, it might help to take them, or just yourself, to 'Tis the Season for Science. During the holidays, the science museum shimmers so hard it's practically flirting with anyone who walks through the doors — it's easy to fall in love with searching for the truth in there. During these last few days of the special holiday season activities, you can see many awesome things: an igloo, real live reindeer, indoor snow, and Santa Claude the albino alligator. Play Polar Jeopardy, view the Northern Lights in HD, and get to know cold-blooded friends like snakes; that's all on top of the usual planetarium shows, magical rainforest dome, twice-daily penguin feeding, and aquarium displays.

  • 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.'"
