We all love Shepard Fairey and Banksy, but let's not forget that their current shine wouldn't be possible without the street art of Ron English. English follows up  2008's The Secret History of Kiss with next year's Mythographic Vicissitudes at Fifty24SF Gallery. Moving on from his juxtaposition of art history and KISS makeup, English's upcoming solo exhibit explores variations on modern mythologies, from Jesus to Bigfoot to Expressonism. Mythographic Vicissitudes opens with a reception Thursday, Jan.8 from 7-9 p.m., and will be available for viewing until Jan. 29, 2009. Visit for more info. --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.'"
