Just because you don't like drunken crowds, doesn't mean you can't enjoy the festivities from afar. Fortunately, for those of you who tend to run to the (Oakland) hills any time San Francisco decides to close off the streets to inebriates in costume, we always document it for you for your viewing pleasure.

Bay to Breakers was everything it promised to be: crazy, crowded, colorful, and full of cops. More than two dozen people were arrested, mostly for allegedly having a little too much to drink. However, nobody was arrested for having a little too much fun.

  • 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.'"
