Fun New Find: Metacomet

There’s a band called Metacomet that live right here in the Mission, and they create ambient, soothing, experimental songs that will make your mind drift softly into space; I’d personally enjoy listening to them while on the moon. Hailing from the East coast originally, they blend dreamy guitars, synths and almost chilling vocals, which are even more powerful live. Earlier this month they released a brand new three-song EP called Say Goodnight, which you can listen to here.

Start training now for Wing Wings’ 3rd Annual Wing Eating Contest

I witnessed this spectacle last year at El Rio — and it was truly a spectacle I will never forget. And it’s for a good cause. Get ready.

The Magician in SF

I don’t know quite what to expect from this show, but the poster art is awesome. And more importantly, The Magician is at least partially responsible for this, which I think is basically the best song of all time:

Get tickets here.

Rainbow Grocery Cafe to grandly open this Friday!

Rainbow‘s little cafe is finally here! The party is all day long, and there’ll be free samples and vendors such as Stumptown Coffee and Starter Bakery will be doing demos:

We have worked with Stumptown Coffee Roasters to learn how to brew their highest quality (and most ethically grown) beans with the most delicious results possible. We will offer brewed coffee as well as a variety of espresso drinks off our beautiful La Marzocco espresso machine. An unparalleled selection of teas from our large Bulk Tea selection will be available. We use Strauss organic whole milk in all steamed drinks and offer Pacific Unsweetened Almond milk as a non-dairy alternative. Our menu includes fresh baked pastries from Starter Bakery.

The cafe is open Monday-Saturday 8am-6pm and Sunday 9am-3pm.

Local’s Corner defaced again

And they’re not open for lunch anymore, so nobody’s shown up to clean it up yet.

I thought they might cut the guy some slack after he admitted calling it Local’s Corner was a bad idea, but nope.

(Thanks, Jess and Camille.)

Go Giants!
