Bear in Heaven: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Nov 28 2012

It's a familiar tale: A rock group with electronic leanings trades its murky doodles for dayglow pixels — and plays a beer festival. Well, all but that last bit is common terrain for your identikit synth-rocking indie band. What sets Bear in Heaven apart from similarly dancefloor-friendly psych acts — like School of Seven Bells and Neon Indian — is its lack of studied cool. Believe us when we say this is a good thing. Latest album I Love You, It's Cool features the Brooklyn trio at its earthiest and most companionable. Which should go down just great on a Saturday afternoon sipping beers from Anchor Brewing, 21st Amendment, and other breweries at The Bay Brewed: A Rock and Roll Beer Festival.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
