Fall Arts 2014: Our Guide to the Outlandish and the Outliers This Season 

Tuesday, Sep 2 2014

For this year's annual Fall Arts issue we decided we'd celebrate the outsiders: the freaks, eccentrics, visionaries, mystics, fuck-ups, and misunderstoods that lurk on the outskirts of mainstream culture. This being San Francisco, we didn't have to look very far to find them. Whether we're talking exhibits on Warren Hellman or secret sex parties, comics about talking rabbits or improv plays based on Terminator 2, we've sought out the oddballs in theater, dance, visual art, film, books, comedy, comic books, and TV so you can wrap yourself in a warm blanket of weird all season long.

  • 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.'"
