Bassnectar Turns Up Benevolent Bass

Womp, Womp, Womp. Wobbling bass speakers. Giraffe, zebra and furry-headed costumes. Sweat-dripping fans hanging over the balcony railing. Front-row heroes bouncing with their hands in the air. Freaks dancing on tables, chairs, anything wide enough to stand on. Lights. Video mashes. Hip-hop. Metal. Funk. This is Bassnectar. Yet there’s more to it, than a massive sound, a beat-freak following and out-of-control performances.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs Hit the Streets of SF in "Zero" Video

How many places can you name in the latest Yeah Yeah Yeahs' music video?  Quite a few, we'd bet.

Catch them live at BFD June 6.

Top Chef's Jamie Lauren on NY vs. SF (Who's Better?)

One of the things I've noticed over the past seven years that I have been in San Francisco is the clear differences between foodie culture here versus New York City—my hometown. Since I’m just finishing up a visit (snowed-in as we speak), I thought I’d weigh the benefits of two cities dear to my heart.

Northern California Hotels Make Holiday Travel More Affordable

It's true there's no place like home for the holidays...but sometimes you just want to get away from it all before the chaos ensues (or rather family togetherness--or in-laws--becomes just too much to bear). The current state on the economy has put a damper on many people's travel plans, but hotels are beginning to take note of this by significantly lowering their rates to an affordable level and creating packages that allow you more bang for your buck this holiday season.
