You Look Like a Bachinksy 

Wednesday, Jul 9 2008
Dave Bachinsky is coming up in the world of skateboarding. The young professional skater was thrown into the spotlight a couple years ago after hucking himself down 20 stairs in Southern California. He actually kickflipped the stair set, which involved jumping really high, flipping the skateboard, , maybe a quick prayer, and then absorbing the impact of the 15-foot drop, hoping not to blow out any ankles or knees. City Skateboards premieres What the F**k is a Bachinsky? in the Mission and it promises to be a party. Although the skate video screens at shops and theaters in more than 75 cities across the country, City is run out of San Francisco's Hunter's Point, making the event a hometown celebration topped with a performance by Oakland's Mistah F.A.B. The video includes the skating of Bachinsky, as well as Jeremy Reeves, Russ Milligan, and others. So what the fuck is a Bachinsky? It's best explained on City's website by the man himself: "A Bachinsky is a dude who doesn't give a fuck and skates his ass off."

  • 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.'"
