Get Down 

Wednesday, Nov 25 2009
This week's craft show, the Handmade Ho-Down, is sponsored by Etsy, and the stamp of approval from the large, respected online emporium of all things microproduced is wonderful. Etsy, however, makes us think of its own evil twin, a Web site called Regretsy. We hope the Ho-Down doesn't have too many items featured on Regretsy – Corn Poo Soap, eye-hurting fashions, or glass jewelry described thusly: "Dewey's dripping dick has been created in shades of green and the striped pattern has a nice depth to the colors." (A book is in the works, naturally.) Instead, tasteful, delightful items of high quality from vendors including East Bay art group Oaklandish, Eristotle eco-home furnishings company, and bath salt mavens Bathing in Luxury grace the tables. Our local makers would never let us down in the crocheted Sex and the City-earrings way, we're sure.

  • 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.'"
