13 Reasons We're Glad We Missed Coachella (Photos)

Posted By on Mon, Apr 18, 2011 at 10:31 AM

What a lovely weekend in S.F.: Open tables at all the Mission's best bars, easy access to prime brunch locales, and short pizza delivery times. Was everyone gone for Coachella? Probably -- but we're glad we weren't, and not just because it was really easy to snag fresh pitchers at Zeitgeist. Here's a photo roundup of the Coachella festival's detritus -- 13 reasons we're really glad we stayed home.

1. The sudden appearance of ecstatic, glow-stick-laden ravers.

At least at home you know in advance when you're going to be surrounded by a bunch of E-popping freaks. At Coachella, they just appear.

2. People who like Odd Future too much.

3. Rock dads

  • 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.'"
