An Eco-Indie Shopping Event 

Wednesday, Dec 9 2009
When a local nonprofit hell-bent on building social consciousness through digital culture decides to open up a product-focused space supporting designers of sustainability-minded wearables, the world becomes richer not only in hyphenated words, but also in clothes. “Broadcast,” a shopping and fashion preview event meant to showcase the wares and talents of designers represented in the nonprofit’s new boutique, features the finished products of many a fashion-forward cottage industrialist. Whether it’s a frock inspired by playful Scandinavian melancholy and created by Sofie Ølgaard; an angular fur felt or fish skin hat from Jasmin Zorlu Millinery; or one of the hand-dyed, vegetable-tanned, solar-powered bags from Noon Solar, the fashionable bits and pieces on display look to the future without quite being a spherical, space-age Lady Gaga helmet. This evening of perusing the pants and bracelets and satchels of emerging talents unfolds to the music of DJs Fluid and Conor, who add a futuristic touch to holiday gift-buying.

  • 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.'"
