2014 San Francisco Zine Fest 

When: Sat., Aug. 30, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sun., Aug. 31, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. 2014
Price: free
Calling all collage connoisseurs, glue stick gurus, and copy machine queens: The SF Zine Fest is back. This annual gathering of writers, illustrators, designers, and creators celebrates the do-it-yourself magazine, a form that’s enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Come meet some of the NorCal leaders of this underground form, check out some of the city’s best alt rags, and enjoy the distinctive zine subculture at this weekend-long event. Among the form’s favorite subjects are monsters, food, sex, dreams, environmental apocalypse, and riot grrrls. In other words, it’s home to the queer and the quirky. Take that, mainstream publishing! Don’t forget your X-Acto knife or your sense of adventure.

  • 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.'"
