There was no shortage of fun and games last weekend, and our hard-working writers and photographers beat the pavement to bring you news of the fun you missed (or can't remember).

The city may be losing it over the World Cup, but there was another cup in town this weekend: the first ever High Times Medical Cannabis Cup.  Check out Chris Roberts shots of the colorful (the main color was green) event.

 The girls of Hubba Hubba Revue went to hell at the DNA Lounge, but everyone there felt like they were in heaven as the ladies strutted their stuff all over the stage. Calibree Photography caught every tassel shake and shimmy.

Rising star Janelle Monae (who, by the way, is playing SF Weekly's music festival this year) outshined headliner

  • 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.'"
