The board sport visionaries behind seminal all-gal skate video Getting Nowhere Faster, Tiffany Campbell and Andria Lesser, bring you the surf edition: Dear and Yonder. The film's Bay Area celebration unites artists, sport punks, jocks, and musicians: Surf Movie Party! begins with a little music, including locals Black Bow and Thee Oh Sees. At the same time, pro skaters Amy Caron, Vanessa Torres, and Leticia Bufoni shred the skatepark, in tribute to the skateboarding segment of Dear and Yonder (which also features local hero Elissa Steamer). The 60-minute film screens at sundown, and includes extensive footage of several women pros, including Silvana Lima and Coco Ho, surfing spots from the California coast to Indonesia. If you want to kick off your good time a day early, check out the accompanying art opening at Mollusk Surf Shop, where an exhaustive list of Dear and Yonder's friends show their work (through Sept. 17).

  • 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.'"
