Anyone who'd characterize Mission Bay as a soulless scrap of concrete strewn with clumps of medical buildings and condos resembling the structure on the Stolichnaya label -- well, now it's all that with a hell of a rainbow.

Those seeking the pot of gold should race down to the vicinity of Pier 50. Aptly, that's the lucrative piece of land Larry Ellison coveted so during the city's America's Cup negotiations -- and near which the San Francisco Giants purportedly harbor hopes for a waterfront arena and retail strip of their own.

  • 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.'"
