A rare screening of 5 Blocks, which explores the complex questions of income disparity, changing demographics, and the very nature of place. Interweaving cinema vérité scenes, interviews, archival film, and photographs, 5 Blocks reveals the challenges of attracting new, wealthy residents and workers to an area with a 50-year history of housing the poor population. The film screening will then be followed by a final Q&A session hosted by Randy Shaw, director of the Tenderloin Housing Clinic, founder of the Tenderloin Museum, and editor of Beyond Chron.

  • 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.'"
