Do It in the Road 

Wednesday, Sep 5 2007
Linoleum block prints are both simple and mysterious. As relatives of the classroom messes we made with potatoes and finger paint, the form is easy to understand: press ink onto paper, get mirror image with cool texture. But like a lot of things, if you toss a load of talent at it, it gets interesting and complicated and better. At Roadworks: Steamroller Prints, a number of artists (including Paul Madonna and William T. Wiley) drop their work in the street so it can get run over by two tons of industrial vehicle. This is more interesting than using a printing press. The event is also a street fair, involving kids' activities, food, and art to buy. You cannot drive the steamroller.

  • 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.'"
