    "Oslo, August 31st": All the Sad Young Literary Norwegians

    In just two feature films, writer/director Joachim Trier has proven to be unparalleled in exposing the foibles and delusions of all the sad young literary men. The twentysomething character played by Anders Danielsen Lie in Reprise (2006) finds immediate cult…

    Corinne: Show Preview

    Despite its name, "freestyle" holds to a certain pattern. Borne on a generous application of syncopated drum machine jitters and tweaked electro bass and topped with flitting synth melodies, the genre is inescapably associated with New York and Miami in…

  • 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.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
