"Only Blood": Thoughtful Short Film Features San Francisco

We came across a post on Reddit this morning that features an emotion-stirring short film about an alcoholic father reaching out to his grown daughter who lives in San Francisco. The film clocks in at less than 16 minutes, but in that short time shares the sad history of this family duo against a beautiful backdrop of San Francisco views and sunsets.

Written and directed by NYC-based filmmaker Alexander Jorgensen, the short unravels the tumultuous story behind this father and daughter and at one point leaves the viewer thinking  it's all an alcohol-fueled dream, only to see the father wearing the new shoes his daughter purchased him during the course of their one-day reunion. At the end, the film leaves the viewer to make her own conclusions about what happens after the credits start to roll. If you have 16 minutes to spare today we highly encourage you watch Only Blood.

  • 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.'"
