In case you haven't laughed at their disfigured remnants already, the current crop of stencil-street-art type promotional posters plugging the fourth Rambo movie are plastered all over San Francisco. But something about the guerilla art style has drawn its fair share of mischievous interpreters, including the Rambo/Rimbaud side-by-side above and the Rambo/Banksy take (via copyranter), and several shots posted by SFist, both elevating Rambo to hilarious musical proportions. Thankfully the movie opened this week, so our aspiring street artists can move on to bigger and better targets. (via Gridskipper)

  • 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.'"
