Andrew Leland Wants Nothing from You

Former Believer magazine managing editor and sweet, funny, worrisomely intelligent man Andrew Leland is leaving the Bay Area. He just wrote to us that he's moving to Missouri, "forever"; we're busy pouting and don't even want to know why right now. Leland delighted us in many ways over the eight years he was at the Believer! Like so:

A Jonn Herschend film shoot at OMCA; yours will look nothinger.
  • A Jonn Herschend film shoot at OMCA; yours will look nothinger.
So but before he goes, Leland is directing a movie and he wants you in it. You shouldn't need to know anything more than that, but apparently he works at the completely wonderful Oakland Museum of California in an experimental division called the Oakland Standard, and in that capacity is making a movie about nothing, with Jonn Herschend. It's their contention that it's very important for nothing to happen at a museum, in order that everything may happen at a museum; we couldn't agree more.

Auditions to tell Andrew Leland about your experience of nothingness at the Oakland Museum of California are open until June 20.

  • 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.'"
