Despite the depressing news on Prop. 8, the Castro turned into party central at the news of Obama's win. Sam Heller shares photos from that neck of the woods, and from other parties around town:


Obama's as good a reason to strip as any! Though these guys don't usually need a reason.

One woman whipped out the "loser" sign when Palin was mentioned.

  • 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.'"
