Vollmer Peak is 1,905 feet, and Grizzly Peak is 1,754. Ride up Grizzly Peak in the Berkeley Hills and you arguably get one of the most diverse views of the region: you can see the Bay Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, Mount Tamalpais, Mount Diablo, San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, and just about every other city you'd like to see. Have a nice chuckle as you watch the fog blanket San Francisco, while the peak you're standing on baths you with warm sun. In the Bay Area, nothing wins more than the warm sun.

  • 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.'"
