Have you seen the artistic mobiles popping up around the city?

These guerrilla street-art installations have been spotted everywhere from the Haight to Hayes Valley to the Castro, according to neighborhood blog Haighteration.

Spinning in the breeze while hanging from light poles or dangling from windows, there's no way of knowing if it's just one clever artist, or if one artist inspired another. Each mobile has it's own slant, from legos, to pink triangles, to mini toy people and pride flags. If you spot one, send the picture to us and we'll add it to this post.

  • 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.
