We live in one of those magical cities where we don't even need to visit a gallery take in fine art -- all we have to do is just step outside. The San Francisco Bay Area has always been a veritable hotbed for street art since its humble beginnings, and is documented in great detail through photographer Steve Rotman's new book, Bay Area Graffiti. The book amasses an impressive collection of street art from throughout the Bay with epic shots of graffiti blending into city landscapes, and also includes interviews from dozens of Bay Area-based artists. Bay Area Graffiti hits shelves this January from Mark Batty Publishers. Visit for ordering 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.'"
