If you've never heard of the non-profit Creativity Explored, get ready to be impressed: for 25 years, the Mission-based arts collective has been providing adults with developmental disabilities a forum to produce and sell their own art work, to integrate with the greater Bay Area arts scene and, most of all, to become as independent as possible. To celebrate the quarter century mark and give props to co-founders Florence Ludins-Katz and Elias Katz, Creativity Explored is throwing a big honking dinner party at Foreign Cinema (2534 Mission at 21st St.) this Thursday, May 15. But what would a party at Foreign Cinema be without some movies? Local silver screen-obsessed, filmmaking drag legend Peaches Christ will preside over the festivities. The lineup includes a screening of clips from Ben Wu's 2007 Academy Award-Nominated documentary "Cross Your Eyes, Keep Them Wide," featuring artists from Creativity Explored, cowboy music by Chris Leone and the Spurs of the Moment (great name by the way), an auction of works by in house artists, and last but not least, a menu of small plates from the Foreign Cinema chefs and lots of wine, beer, and cocktails. $100 per person before May 14; $125 day of. For tickets visit or call 863-2108.

  • 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.'"
