Kseniya Thomas and Jessica White are the co-founders of The Ladies of Letterpress, an online spot and professional organization with the idea that "a woman's place is in the print shop." (If you're too little to recognize that phrase, it's based on something that people used to actually say, "a woman's place is in the home." Seriously. People used to say that.)

Tonight, they talk about their own print shops; White's is called Heroes and Criminals Press in Asheville, NC, and Thomas is the owner of Thomas-Printers in Carlisle, PA. There's also an exhibit of local women's letterpress work, snacks, drinks -- and if your business card was letterpressed, you can tack it up on the wall for everyone to admire. Instant DIY art show!

It's at the San Francisco Center for the Book, March 17 at 6 p.m.

  • 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.'"
