Sand Through an Hourglass

Thanks to the fickleness of pop culture, the French writer Amandine Aurore Lucie Dupin (1804-1876), aka George Sand, may be better known for her relationship to Frédéric Chopin than for her novels, her other romances, or her generally bold life.…

Director Neil LaBute (Your Friends and Neighbors, Nurse Betty) seems the unlikeliest candidate to direct the film version of British author A.S. Byatt's Booker Award-winning best seller Possession. (OK, that's an exaggeration: There's always Michael Bay, of Pearl Harbor and…

Blood Work, Clint Eastwood's 23rd film as director, is another crime thriller in the mode of, but better than, True Crime (1999) and Absolute Power (1997), two of his last three films. More than these, however, it resembles In the…

  • 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.'"
