Best of the New 

Wednesday, Oct 30 2013

Each year, the San Francisco Foundation accepts submissions of unpublished manuscripts from California natives and current residents; they then honor the authors of the most outstanding work with cash awards and permanent housing of their manuscripts in UC Berkeley's Bancroft Library. The selections represent a stunning collection of the area's emerging writers; past recipients include U.S. Poet Laureate Philip Levine, former California Poet Laureate Al Young, and the likes of Raymond Carver, Ernest Gaines, Jane Hirshfield (and the list goes on). This year's winners include Aja Couchois Duncan, Danny Romero, and Cooley Windsor, all of whom will read from their manuscripts.

  • 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.'"
