A TARDIS in Every Driveway

Whether it's science fiction (Asteroid, Mad Max, The Hunger Games) or science fact (global warming, nuclear arms, a pregnant Kardashian), the future can look downright scary. It can also look pretty cool – android housekeepers, "smart cars" that avoid collisions,…

The Road to Ordinary

Grant Petersen has been called a “retro-grouch” on the subject of bicycles. That’s a label usually slapped on curmudgeonly types who resist newer (some would say better) ways to do things. Petersen gets a pass on this one, though, because…

Master Your Domain

You might equate an event called the Masturbate-a-Thon with “only in San Francisco.” But you’d be wrong. San Francisco was the site of the first one, but similar events have occurred in Portland, London, and Copenhagen. According to organizer Carol…

As a people, we hate our bodes. And why wouldn’t we? Thanks to advertising, religion, and pop culture, we’re taught to see our physical selves as either substandard and laughable or as low-grade, filthy vehicles of sin. And as body…

All About the Cat

Pussy. It’s a word we don’t expect to see in a description of a festival that’s “a celebration of female power and creativity,” but there it is. To be fair, “pussy” in this case is not what you think. Except,…

  • 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.'"
