Neil Diamond Sings "Sweet Caroline" at Some Giant Outdoor Bar

Posted By on Tue, Apr 6, 2010 at 8:46 AM

Why is it that "Sweet Caroline" always gets everyone within earshot to sing along? Whether it pops on the radio in your buddy's car, on the jukebox at 15 Romolo, or over the PA at some big outdoor park with fake grass in Boston, you're gonna hear a Greek chorus when Neil Diamond gets to "Good times never seemed so good" ("So good, so good!")

So how come San Francisco didn't get the other big bar singalong --written by local boys, no less--for our opening day? Just sayin'.

  • 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.'"
