Today, we here at All Shook Down say goodbye to Disqus and hello to Livefyre, the new commenting system for this and all other SF Weekly blogs. Livefyre is pretty cool -- futuristic, even -- so we're excited for you to get acquainted. Here's a rundown of some key features:

Tag your friends on Facebook and Twitter directly through Livefyre to bring them into the conversation. Livefyre brings comment contributors together and makes our site feel more like a community.

Check out what your friends like on Voice Places and the stories they like on the site without logging into different accounts. We've integrated My Voice Nation and the commenting system so you only need one account to stay up on what's new at All Shook Down.

Staying up to the minute has never been easier with real-time updates that let you chime right into the conversation. Email alerts for comment likes and replies, paired with mobile access, make commenting on the go effortless. You'll also be able to follow your favorite writers and topics throughout all Village Voice publications, so you don't have to sift through all the sites.

Don't have a Livefyre account already? Signing up with Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, Google, or your email below is a cinch. Your comments from our old system will automatically roll over into our new one in the next few hours.

Now that we've given you the low-down on Livefyre, be sure to let us know what's working and what's not in our brand new comments section. See you at the bottom of the page!

  • 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.
