Matrimonial Strife in Candida

Since George Bernard Shaw is one of the playwriting greats - and the only person ever awarded both a Nobel Prize for Literature and an Oscar - you have to assume that his cocktail conversation would either veer toward fascinating or insufferable. Since we have no way of knowing for sure (he's been dead awhile, making a chat over brandy unlikely), check out Candida instead, getting the Cal Shakes treatment this month. 

Outside Lands 2011: Ty Segall

See video

In a setting like Outside Lands, San Francisco bands have a lot to prove. It's counter-intuitive, but the hordes of attendees are here to see the big names and drink their weights in beer in between the acts they've read and heard about the most.

On August 11, the worlds of fashion, music, and art collided at Supperclub bringing an explosion of emerging talent to the forefront of entertainment. The white runway was lined with glowing VitaminWater Zero bottles, giving the atmosphere an energized vibe which was accentuated by the tunes spinning from DJ Ajax's turntables

Carlton Hair winner Margarita Melano lit up the red carpet when she entered with her sleek and funky up-do created at the nearby Carlton Hair Salon. WIth over one thousand text-in votes valued at $3,000, Larissa Verdussen was crowned as the winner.

SF Street Style: Vintage Jeanne-Marc Reversible Top + Dries Van Noten Shoes at Ver Unica in Hayes Valley

Vintage buff Cindy Spade owns the Ver Unica boutiques in Hayes Valley with her husband, Steve Bell. And with Ver Unica's selection as indication of her tremendous taste, I wasn't surprised to catch Cindy in this fabulous vintage-meets-contemporary outfit, rings by Lila Rice and vintage.

Outside Lands 2011: tUnE-yArDs

Oakland's tUnE-yArDs, although fairly new on the scene, is already blowing minds. Singer and multi-instrumentalist Merrill Garbus just performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last week, drumming up insane amounts of anticpation for her early show. And the hype is completely warranted. Garbus does what most musicians wouldn't dare to do onstage for fear of screwing up: she bravely creates and loops all her drums and vocals on the spot, layering tribal beats and melodies underneath soaring, pitch-perfect singing that sounds like its coming from the throat of an African man. 

Outside Lands 2011: The Fresh & Onlys

SF-locals the Fresh & Onlys kicked things off on Sunday. 

A Wine Country Wedding at the Kenwood Inn and Spa in Sonoma

Brian Marcinek was attending a charity event in Seattle for disadvantaged children around the globe, but he was thinking locally. Specifically, his mind was on the woman across the room wearing a form-fitting pair of Alice + Olivia black pants. The wearer of the pants, Malissa Rackley, was a stranger to him then, but she would soon be his fiancée.

His opening line was: “Where have you been hiding?” Her initial comments were not as suggestive. “We were talking in a group and somehow the conversation turned to his hair,” she says. “He said he was wearing it combed over so he would look older, and I said ‘the operative word there is old.’”
