Lights Out San Francisco to Turn SF Into North Korea

Posted By on Mon, Oct 8, 2007 at 2:13 PM


Lights Out San Francisco promises to darken SF's nighttime sky on October 20th with a coordinated turn-off-your-lights campaign that continues this week. The city has signed on. So has the Golden Gate Bridge. What do you think, SF? Is this a bold environmental statement, or a crackpot idea cooked up by post-luddites who wear tinfoil hats? "Eww, light pollution!" And does anyone actually think it's going to be darker in SF from 8- 9 p.m. on October 20? Isn't sunlight still kinda out at that hour? -David Downs

  • 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.'"
