Sidebar: SFMOMA's Live Pop-Up Magazine Looks at Wine

Posted By on Fri, Mar 11, 2011 at 10:57 AM


In only four issues, Pop-Up Magazine, San Francisco's live magazine, has grown so quickly that issue five is destined for the San Francisco Opera House this spring. The live performance series, which brings together writers, radio producers, artists, and filmmakers, has become such an arena-size spectacle that the editorial team has decided to start releasing its version of a zine ― shorter events staged in between issues.

The first Sidebar, as editor Doug McGray calls this interim series, will be performed? published? posted? next Thursday, at SFMOMA's monthly party, Now Playing. The event's theme: wine.

The museum's "How Wine Became Modern"

exhibit nears the end of the run ― you have until April 17 to see the

exhibit ― and so the evening begins with tastings of wine and food,

curated by Meatpaper, then continues on to a screening of Brian De Palma's

1970 film Dionysus in 69;

Sidebar begins in the museum atrium at 9 p.m. McGray says that he never

releases the full lineup until right before the performance, but

mentions that Michael Pollan, the Kitchen Sisters, Yiyun Li, and Larry

Sultan have performed in past issues ― and will say, by way of a teaser, that Coi's Daniel

Patterson is one of the evening's featured contributors.

Sidebar: The Wine Issue

Where: SFMOMA, 151 Third St. (at Mission).

When: Museum event begins at 6 p.m., Sidebar at 9 p.m.

Cost: Free with museum membership; half-price museum entrance fee for nonmembers.

  • 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.'"
