Picture Disks 

Wednesday, Feb 20 2008
It's not just the vinyl record and cassette tape that have been dwarfed by the MP3; CDs are looking pretty quaint as well. But as the digital revolution forges on, "Collector" commemorates what is lost: the cover art and special packaging that were once a tangible extension of the artistic pursuits of music. The exhibit is the second edition of a hip-hop art show curated by David Paul, proprietor of veteran local label Bomb Hip-Hop and purveyor of the popular "Prince vs. Michael Jackson" dance parties.

The night honors the memory of film director Tony Silver (who passed away earlier this month from brain cancer) by dedicating a wall to screening the imagery of his classic graffiti and hip-hop culture documentary, Style Wars. Donations will be accepted to benefit (Out)Laws & Justice, the youth nonprofit organization that Silver's family says meant a lot to him. DJs Doc Fu, Jeff Harris, DJ Design and Sake-1 will spin cold, dope, and impossibly fresh oldies so you can feel the real.

  • 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.'"
