STS9 Rocks the Greek Theatre

UC Berkeley’s Greek Theatre filled with movement last Friday as Sound Tribe Sector Nine and Bassnectar layered beats, flickered into their signature light show and kicked cuts from recently released Peaceblaster.

By the time dusk rolled to dark and glowsticks started to light up, it was a total dance party.  Costume-clad audience members waved ferry-like shawls and sported Kiss-like face paint.

Ready, Set, Caffeinate! Four Barrel Coffee Opens

Eater SF reported yesterday that the Four Barrel back-alley coffee cart is no longer—the end of an era of clandestine caffeination? Perhaps, but in this case the end of one era is the beginning of another. We caught up with Four Barrel owner Jeremy Tooker, who is in the midst of putting the finishing touches on his coffee house, which he expects will be up and running by Saturday. “It’s gorgeous!” he exclaims (in a charmingly immodest fashion, given that he designed and built the space himself, using recycled and repurposed wood).

This Old Bag Fundraiser Preview at the Clift Hotel

On Wednesday, August 6, guests attended a preview party for the fourth annual This Old Bag fundraiser auction benefiting the city’s Breast Cancer Emergency Fund. Celebrity and designer purses were on display in the Spanish Suite at the Clift hotel during this event hosted by Bella Farrow and Hilary Newsom Callan. Guests sampled appetizers provided by the Clift, specialty cupcakes from That Takes the Cake and beverages from J Vineyards and Pearl Vodka while perusing handbags autographed by such stars as Sharon Stone and Renee Fleming.


Channel Your Inner Ariel at The Castro Theatre

Start warming up those vocal chords. You know you've perfected "Part of Your World" and "Under the Sea" in the shower.  Now it's time for the big leagues.  Break out the mer-gear, channel your inner Ariel (or of course, Sebastian), and head to The Castro Theatre for a Little Mermaid Sing-Along (Aug. 22-28).  Don't fret if you forget what comes after "each little clam here know how to jam here"- lyrics will  be streaming across the screen (FYI, it's "each little slug here cuttin' a rug here").  And come dressed to impress - prizes will be awarded to the best sea-costume.
