Dancing, Outraged Corpses to Converge on Dolores Park Saturday

Holy shit, Saturday is going to be a doozy at Dolores Park, with two global, yet totally unrelated events converging, complete with dancing corpses, symbolic deaths, and plenty of outrage to go around.

As SFist points out, not only will there be an afternoon attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest simultaneous dance to Michael Jackson's "Thriller," (3:00 P.M.) but the morning "Fall Out Against The War" march beginning at Civic Center (11:00 A.M.) will also culminate in a symbolic die-in at Dolores Park.

Whew, that's a lot of corpses. Among the layers and layers of irony here is the fact that Dolores Park was once a cemetery. So welcome home, dead people.

  • 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.'"
