Spring Out of the Jungle

"Tiger people are sensitive, given to deep thinking, capable of great sympathy. They can be extremely short-tempered, however." That's what the Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco's Web site says about this year's babies, although it also specifies that not too many people take such horoscopes very seriously. At the Spring Festival Celebration, tigers — corporeal and mythological — are center stage, among children's arts and crafts, dance performances by Chung Ngai Lion (!) Dance Troupe, music, and above all in the lovely traditional watercolors of Master Kan Kwok Fan. Puzzles, tai chi, and lots more ring in the New Year — we imagine you've already heard there's a little parade going on this weekend, too.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
