Not Dead. In Fact, Just Fine 

Wednesday, Oct 6 2010
We’ve called Jennifer Blowdryer “the girl John Waters” before, and we’ll do it again, even though she’s a writer, not a filmmaker. And she’s a woman, not a girl, yet her juvenile delight in bizarre behavior — her own, and others’ — is nothing but girlish. Today she reads her contribution to Punk Rock Saved My Ass, a collection of stories about the good side of that maligned, malignant, co-opted, and misunderstood subculture. Editors Terena Scott and Jane Mackay make the point that creatively expressing your fury can be a healthy, not to mention fun, way to spend time. A range of contributors describe their positive experiences in punk, including the girl John Waters, who started her band, the Blowdryers, at age 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.'"
