Bad Hair Eternity 

Wednesday, Jul 9 2014

On a popular vacation-resort island, at this very time, there's a group of mad scientists creating the world's first genetically modified super-strength toupees. These toupees and now living, breathing monsters — and they're hungry for human blood! Alright, don't worry, this is not in real life. It's probably safe to say that most hairpieces aren't going to kill you in a fit of homicidal mania. But it definitely is happening in Gene Hamm's new graphic novel, Hell Toupee. Hamm reads from his book tonight at the Cartoon Art Museum. Hell Toupee is a tongue-in-cheek look at how spooky (and hilarious) modern science is, and it's also a jab at just how damn vain people can be — come on, you don't want to be the guy wearing a toupee when they come to life and turn on mankind. Although, in Hamm's world, it's up to one sexy, punk barber to save the day and the lives of innocent faux-hair enthusiasts in her little black shorts and combat boots. And that doesn't sound half bad.

  • 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.'"
