The Hamburger Eyes empire is expanding. First, the talented self-taught photographers launched their lauded magazine. Then they opened a "photo epicenter" earlier this year in the middle of taqueria town, down near 24th and Mission (on 26 Lilac). Now they're hosting openings at the casual second-floor cubbyhole on the regular. Tonight Hamburger head Ray Potes is showing a collection of work titled "Android" that ranks high on my recommended list. The show opens from 5 until 9 p.m.

When you're done there, scoot on over to the Haight for the grand opening of RVCA's new gallery.

RVCA is a high end skater-dude clothing store but they also sell really cool select art books and DVDs. They're connected with some killer artists -- Hamburger Eyes' Stefan Simikich has a show up there now -- publishes the gorgeous indie art mag ANP, which definitely covers some great stuff, local and otherwise. The store is in the old Gap space at Haight and Ashbury, offering much-improved merchandise as well as adding another gallery to the slow build of galleries in the Haight 'hood (Giant Robot, Fifty24SF, Lower Hater, et all). The RVCA opening starts at 7 p.m. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
