Wheatpaste art is kind of a new style for art galleries. Usually, wheatpasting artists show their work in industrial urban areas, illegally. It is an inherently ephemeral form, since it consists of thin paper covered with watery glue left to dry. At "Don't Take Vaccines," for example, Nick Mann, aka Doodles, makes his first indoor appearance. In this sense, he takes after Swoon, who also works with delicate materials in harsh environments. But visually, the two are completely unalike: Doodles trades in sharp-cornered, high-contrast, high-color beasties with headstrong opinions.

  • 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.'"
