Small Turnout for Nude Torch Run

Posted By on Wed, Apr 9, 2008 at 4:24 PM


The protesters weren't the only ones stood up by the Ferry Building today. George Davis (aka the "naked yoga guy") hung around outside Tacqueria Pancho Villa for his army of nudists, but only two showed up. So instead of stripping down at 12:30 as planned, the nude run started an hour late, and only once the protesting crowd grew tired of the sidelines and started a parade of sorts through the streets.

"There are children here!" shrieked one pro-Olympics mama holding a large China flag. "Why are you naked!?" asked another. The original Olympic athletes were nude, Davis pointed out. And he and his barefoot posse marched on.

  • 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.'"
