  • Coach umbrella reportedly "too good" for S.F. rainstorm

Much-needed rain is always a good thing, unless of course your always-reliable umbrella punks out on you mid rainstorm. 

But alas, San Franciscans — and their umbrellas — are never skilled at tolerating "extreme" weather. And we are using the phrase "extreme weather" very liberally. 

Perhaps it's time for us to find some other way to weather this weather.

  • 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.'"
