Long Strange (Bus) Trip 

Wednesday, Mar 28 2012
Comments
We want to warn you, because otherwise it might bum you out: You’re sitting comfortably on the Magic Bus, grooving out on a loving multimedia gloss of what happened in San Francisco in the 1960s, and the windows suddenly disappear. Because you’re sitting facing the windows, this might be pretty intense. But don’t panic — Antenna Theater, which put this tour together, knows what it’s doing and why. The insides of the windows become film screens, and they show you what was happening outside, where you are right now, back then. It’s not time travel, but it’s a cool way to make a point. The bus visits the Haight, of course, and the park, but also North Beach for a Beat poet moment (window screens come up and you’re at City Lights!), and the nearby Transamerica pyramid for a meditation on capitalism’s space invasions. BYOLSD.
Tuesdays-Fridays, 10 a.m. & 12:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m., 12:30 & 3 p.m. Starts: May 1. Continues through Aug. 31, 2012

  • 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.
