Walk On By 

Wednesday, Jul 8 2009
Uh-oh: A recent poll shows people in the U.S. don’t think AIDS is a very serious public health problem anymore. So, um, hey! IT IS! Now you know. Today’s (23rd annual — way to go, organizers. Wow.) AIDS Walk San Francisco raises not only money for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the like, but also the ever-elusive awareness mentioned above. While registration will be closed by the time you read this, you can still go over to the lovely park, listen to some music, get educated, and fork over some of your hard-earned cash — it all stays in the Bay Area, helping the poor, the old, the young, and the just plain needy. We have reason to be proud, too — the walk originated here in the city, and has now branched to Los Angeles, New York, and, to be honest, Wisconsin. Iowa thinks it’s owning all the cool in the Midwest, but where is its AIDS Walk? Maybe next year.

  • 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.'"
