Oh, and Read the Book! 

Wednesday, Oct 31 2007
Each fall, everybody in San Francisco gets together to read the same book, much in the way that everybody in France eats baguettes and everybody in Rio wears a thong. Meaning: Everybody does not read the same book. But enough people do that the public library's program One City, One Book: San Francisco Reads is now finishing up its third successful year, and it has kept this year's author, Berkeley's Lalita Tademy, on a speaking circuit that would impress Hillary Clinton. Before she collapses, catch her one final time as she discusses her New York Times best-seller Cane River.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
