This Place Never Gets Old 

Wednesday, Sep 30 2009
We’re film nerds; we love the illegal film called Los Angeles Plays Itself, which uses unauthorized clips from nearly every major motion picture that features the city. It’s a neat, smart, beautiful movie, so “San Francisco Plays Itself,” a new art exhibition, calls to us. It's the first of two parts of a 35th Anniversary Exibition, and features San Francisco-related art from both now and then, made by John Chiara, Mark Citret, Judy Dater, Kota Ezawa, Alex Fradkin, Jona Frank, Richard Gilles, Jim Goldberg, Katy Grannan, John Harding, Chauncey Hare, Christina Koci Hernandez, Zig Jackson, Michael Jang, Keba Konte, Annie Leibovitz, Ken Light, Ari Marcopoulos, Mary Ellen Mark, Ken Miller, Richard Misrach, Abelardo Morell, Dan Nicoletta, Catherine Opie, Michael Rauner, Alice Shaw, Shi Guorui, Larry Sultan, Sergio De La Torre, Tseng Kwong Chi, and Catherine Wagner.

  • 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.'"
