Not Only in San Francisco

The world owes queer women of color a huge debt of gratitude: Wanda Sykes alone ought to cause worldwide automatic worship. Because where the hell would we be without Wanda Sykes? But the automatic-worship thing hasn’t happened yet, so let’s talk about it and watch some movies. The Queer Women of Color Film Festival has 38 new films, an amazing panel discussion, and a focus on Vietnamese-American filmmakers. The talk (Thinkers & Troublemakers, June 11 at 1 p.m.) features a Black Panther; someone who spent time in Chilean prison in the 1970s; the divine Jewelle Gomez; and a Kenyan-born South Asian woman who makes “sexy films about social justice.” Commence worldwide automatic worship! Or at least, as Truc Thanh Nguyen’s film Help Wanted points out, a fair chance at a crappy job.

    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.'"
