File this one under "you don't see that every day." We're still not

sure what dragons eat, but it turns out we now know what they drink --

Jamba Juice!

This still semi-clad troupe of Chinese dragon dancers celebrating the new year were spotted yesterday purchasing libations at the Jamba Juice in Daly City's Westlake neighborhood.

This, by the way, is the specific neighborhood in Daly City that inspired Malvina Reynolds' anti-suburbia lament, "Little Boxes."

There's no lyrics about dragon dancers in "Little Boxes," by the way. But while there may be a green one, and a blue one, and a pink one, and a yellow one -- the dragons are all not made of ticky tacky and they don't all look the same.

  • 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.'"
