Yep, you read that headline right. SF Weekly is giving out money, in the form of three $1,500 grants, to local artists. Not only could you win some moola to keep your projects going, but the top 10 submissions will be displayed at our Artopia party Feb. 16 at Public Works. Sounds like a sweet deal, right? Read on for details on how to enter.

Artists working in performing arts, visual arts, fashion/design, and film/video/media are eligible to enter the Masterminds program. Each of the top 10 artists will have one work displayed at Artopia.

Submissions can come in the form of slides, photographs, DVDs, CD-ROMs, flash drives, a press kit, or a website. But please note that your submissions will not be returned -- so send digital copies or photographs rather than originals. See here for more information.

  • 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.'"
