Hooman at Alice 97.3 Wants YOU to Vote

The drama of the presidential race has reached a sizzling peak - heated up by the VP debates last night, which were no where near the Palin-train-wreck people were predicting (or maybe wanting) and of course, the economic crisis.    The race has been the most talked about in decades - we've been following the candidate's every move on CNN, E! and the tabloids.  So turn all that time spent into action - step up on November 4th and VOTE.  

Palin-Biden Showdown: Where to Watch

Hot Mess (according to Urban Dictionary):
-When one looks terrible, or acts in such a way that makes them unpleasant to be around
-A person that looks just pitiful
-When a problem or situation is past the point of fixing

Big Bang, Pt. 2

On the 700th-plus day, following years of fundraising, underground garage battles, tons of earth moved for construction and the construction itself, the relocation of a gazillion species, hours and overtime in preparation, 30-plus welcoming events, three major galas and a mile-long line of anxious visitors on opening day, California Academy of Sciences Director Gregory Farrington surveyed this verdant kingdom and declared it was good.

And then, hopefully, went home and took a nap.

Especially as the Big Bang gala on Thursday at The Academy was a humdinger of a party.

Rumble It Up with 2 AM Club

We knew we were on to something when we elected The Rumble the "Best Place to Hang with the Tastemakers" in SF in our Best Of issue. The monthly indie dance party at Harlot—created by local music zine publisher Jason Jurgens (The Owl Mag) and music-industry golden ear Larry Little (Future Sounds)—celebrates it's one year anniversary Wednesday, October 1. It's their first on the first.

Happy Hour! Presidential Debates! Drama! Where to Watch in SF

Every so often, a monumental event takes place on television that we ALL must tune in and watch. A civic duty of sorts for the voyeuristic set. Will Tom Brady live up to expectations and bring a Superbowl victory to the Patriots? Negative, Ghostrider. Will Britney's performance of "Gimme More" at the VMA's launch her career comeback? Not so much. And can we really stand an entire hour of home videos comprised of dads getting sacked in the nuts by their kids? The answer: yes we can!

Chester French Gets Things Going on Treasure Island

Over a sea of neon garb and against a backdrop of a just-sunny San Francisco Bay, Chester French got things rolling yesterday at the Treasure Island Music Festival.   The Harvard alums, who have so captivated the likes of Pharrell, Kanye West and Jermaine Dupri, energized the crowd with hits "She Loves Everybody" (which you may recognize from the closing credits of HBO's Entourage) and "The Jimmy Choo's."
