His now-rare 1980s and 1990s creations are key signifiers of local hipster fashion cred, selling secondhand for hundreds of dollars each. But the cottage industry he helped spawn is still around and growing, with at least half a dozen San Francisco companies now designing and making messenger bags. Producers see them as the best bags in the fashion industry: They don't have to change with the seasons, and they don't have to create separate lines for men and women.

  • 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.'"
