    It's a Small World

    A spitting image of the pope inside the eye of a needle? You've got to be kidding! No joke: Sixteen of Armenian-born artist Hagop Sandaldjian's microscopic miniatures are so tiny, they're only visible to the human eye through magnified portals…

    Clarion Call

    Because it's located between Valencia and Mission and 17th and 18th streets, the Clarion Alley Mural Project (CAMP) is both literally and metaphorically suspended in the midst of San Francisco's fierce debate about gentrification. The project started in October of…

  • 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.'"
