As you know, I've taken a number of trips in recent weeks. Valencia, Barcelona, Berlin, Memphis. But none so foreign a destination as Sunnyside. Sunnyside is a sunny San Francisco neighborhood somewhere between Glen Park and City College -- clean, quiet, residential. Not a lot of street art. Except for this lone hidden gem by D-Know.

Well, what is it? Calls to mind the Beatles, the Riddler, the
Flintstones, Monty Python and every bad acid trip I ever had. But also
a little bit hip-hop. And it looks great in the bottom-right quadrant
of a big metal octagon.

I
clearly have no idea what it is, but it was a sight for sore eyes on
such a pristine little suburban block. Not that there's not plenty of
other nice stuff to look at in Sunnyside:

What a view!

Note: A Flickr search for "d-know" yields some related results.

  • 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.'"
