Street Fashion of the Academy of Sciences' "Nightlife"

Posted By on Thu, Jun 2, 2011 at 5:40 PM

By Michelle Tea Being at the Academy of Sciences after hours for their Thursday night "Nightlife" series feels sneaky and exciting, like From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E Frankweiler. Haven't you spent your whole life longing to be locked up in a Museum overnight? This is as close as you are going to get. Thursday nights at the Academy are the best because A. No children, B. Only $12 C. People are getting drunk and dancing in the Aquarium. And, of course D. - When else would you actually dress up to go look at taxidermied animals and Bolivian frogs and whatnot?

  • 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.'"
