For those who are uninformed, or who aren't hopelessly geektastic, the term "steampunk" describes an aesthetic work that melds advanced modern technology with the look of the Victorian era's Industrial Revolution. Yah, kind of like that crappy Will Smith movie. Come join a whole bevy of humanities majors to watch far superior examples at Steampunk Film Night tomorrow, July 9. The double feature includes Hayao Miyazaki's anime Spirited Away, followed by French filmmakers Marc Caro & Jean-Pierre Jeunet's City of Lost Children. No need to reach for your trouser pockets, it's free. --Oscar Pascual

  • 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.'"
