A Glassy Look 

Wednesday, Jun 25 2008
Art glass is hot, but not in any trendy metaphorical sense. Molten glass temperatures are measured in degrees Kelvin, the same scale scientists use to measure the heat of the sun. It's literally hot, at least at first. At "COLD + HOT," a slate of 10 international glass artists present art they've made with the hot stuff, as well as some sculpture made from room-temp, or "cold" glass. Those interested in the Dale Chihuly exhibit at the de Young – love it or hate it – might also be interested to contrast his installations with the individual pieces here.

  • 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.'"
