If you like art -- and you do, you like it very much! -- then you want to write to performance art thespian Laurel Butler RIGHT NOW. Butler is running an "aesthetic fitness" course; in essence, nine months of free everything at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and lots of people to talk about it with. It's an art-appreciation "gym membership," says the description. They're not accepting everyone who applies, though.

The announcement is terrifically vague about who exactly they're looking for, but our money's on people who really, really love art and can write to "personal trainer" Butler about why. On top of the free everything, extra artist talks, field trips, and social intercourse are part of the deal at this thing, which by the way is called "YBCA: YOU." Deadline to register to be considered for it is Monday, Feb. 28.

To be considered for "YBCA: YOU" write to Laurel Butler at

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
