Blog Beat: Stern Grove Festival Lineup; View of SF From International Space Station

  • From Ocean Beach Bulletin: The Stern Grove Festival has announced its eclectic lineup of free summer concerts, including The English Beat, Aaron Neville, and the San Francisco Symphony, Ballet, and Opera.
  • If you want to see how small and insignificant San Francisco might seem to some people in the rest of the country, this video from the point of view of the International Space Station should serve nicely as a stand-in. Courtesy of a lot of effort from Burrito Justice.
  • Stuff to do in Oakland this weekend, from Oakland Local.
  • Oakland North reports on a combination story hour/library-cuts protest in front of Oakland City Hall.
  • From Fog City Journal, a funny Xtranormal video about l’affaire Alex Tourk, the campaign consultant allegedly engaged in illegal lobbying.
  • From Bluoz: The SOMA office of The Global Film Initiative, which promotes world cinema, was burglarized a few days ago, so now the organization is showcasing a long security video of the perpetrator carrying out equipment.
