Rock n roll with a patio

Posted By on Thu, Apr 17, 2008 at 10:52 AM


Whenever you've got a sunny San Francisco day like today, the idiot line for Zeitgeist goes down the block. But you've just got to remember there are other bars with outdoor patios beyond 14th and Valencia. A couple other standbys include the Irish Bank, the Pilsner, and my new favorite outta the way dive, Broken Record.

I'm never in the Excelsior District, so forgive my lateness on this one...but Broken Record's a dream destination on a hot day. Cozy patio, good liquor selection, great bartenders, and a bit of quiet away from the rest of the downtown insanity. Plus, for all you carnivores, they have sausages packed with crazy kinds of meat that, like the bar, are also way off the beaten path. And, of course, Broken Record has a great jukebox. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
