Prepare for the Anti-Armageddon with these D.I.Y. Classes

Posted By on Tue, Sep 25, 2012 at 11:30 AM

  • Contemporary Jewish Museum

What if Armageddon was nice? Tickle fights, rainbows the size of Texas, a compulsive-hugging disease? The new world would require gentler survival skills than stuff-sharpening. In this event, begin preparing for the clapocalypse by learning campfire songs every Wednesday at The Happiness Institute (1720 Market, free). Or by drawing birds with John Muir Laws, bird artist, Wed., Sept. 26 at 6 p.m. at the California Historical Society (678 Mission St., free).

When you need to eat, harvest your bunkerful of pickles collected from Ritlab at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, which does after-work, D.I.Y. classes and art-making on Thursdays. Last week's was Pickle, Preserve, and Molly Picon, a workshop and screening of silent comedy East and West. Ritlab is in conjunction with CJM's exhibit "Reinventing Ritual" (736 Mission, $5). Or, at Noisebridge (2169 Mission), retrofit meat dishes at Vegan Hacker Night Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 7 p.m. (free) and retrofit your favorite Kumbaya stool by learning to solder at Circuit Hacking Monday at 7:30 p.m. 

When the end of the world comes (and you know it), you'll feel fine.

  • 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.'"
