Yeah, yeah, the name evokes Dr. Evil, or Al Gore, but think of it this way: $2,500 is a lot of Top Ramen.

Submit portfolios/slides/examples we can hold on to of your artwork, films, book, play, clothing to the SF Weekly by Feb. 27, then we make nominees, people vote, and you get what amounts to seven-months rent in the Mission if you know what rat-holes to apply to.

To Repeat:

SF Weekly Wants to Give You $2,500 Because You're A Dope Artist. Deadline to Apply is Feb. 27. Tell your friends.

  • 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.'"
