Peter Conheim's Jet Black Hair People Slices Up Eyeballs

Posted By on Tue, Aug 9, 2011 at 3:00 PM

Peter Conheim is the most gloriously obsessed person we know, and we know a lot of glorious obsessives. (Perk of the job.) Conheim is funtimes for a lot of reasons, one of which is that he's in Negativland, another is he used to be in an early-1960s Cambodian pop cover band, and another is that he's one-third of Wet Gate, some guys who specialize in psychedelic triple-exposure live film looping.


Thursday night, he's running the show at the Jet Black Hair People, a live-music performance set to Dadaist film. He screens Un Chien Andalou, of course (see clip.) But he also has a Bill Plympton freakout, a bit of Daffy Duck trying to mess with your head, and a film by Mr. Dada himself, Marcel Duchamp. It won't be boring and it won't be normal. It will, however, benefit the efforts to reinstate the suddenly evicted, much-beloved radio station KUSF.

August 11, 8 pm at Oddball Film and Video, $10-$15.

  • 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.'"
