Who will save our fair city? You, drunky?
  • Who will save our fair city? You, drunky?
In the spirit of these patriotism-galvanizing times, we've taken the liberty of compiling some of this week's events into a scene-by-scene rundown of a late-summer emotions-and-explosions action flick, in which an alcoholic giant saves San Francisco -- and thus the world -- from destruction by evil, eugenics-obsessed robots. Rumor has it Michael Cera has already signed on to play the alcoholic giant, and Lady Gaga the head robot.

Act I: In which we meet our unlikely hero in his darkest hour

Act II: In which interplanetary death machines begin to wreak havoc upon our fair city

Act III: In which our hero is temporarily distracted from his duty to humanity by a sassy stripper

Act IV: In which our hero battles the robots and seems to be losing, but only because he has not yet unleashed the unstoppable force of his simian agility, or something

Act V: In which the giant is redeemed and fêted by the society that shunned him an hour and a half ago, and also gets it on with the stripper

  • 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.'"
