Heads in the Clouds 

Wednesday, Aug 4 2010
The Yellow Submarine feel to Oliver Hibert's art shows a deep affection for the team of animators behind the famously trippy 1968 Beatles film. At "Hot Freaks," he shows work inspired by the flat, wavy shapes and oddball color combinations from way back when, only his work is definitely for grown-ups: Suffice to say Hibert likes boobies. Many of the other artists who contribute to the exhibit appear to like boobies also, but what really brings them together (besides curator Jay Howell) is a sense of fantasy. Justin Lovato's desolation-row Hieronymus Bosch-y landscapes, Lango Nator's magnificent skull-focused tattoo paintings, and Daryll Peirce's self-described "arterial-botanic city organisms" fantasize harmoniously at "Hot Freaks."

The opening reception for "Hot Freaks" starts at 5 p.m.

  • 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.'"
