A Walk in the Dark 

Wednesday, Apr 8 2009
Lulacruza, for those unfamiliar with the Oaklandish/Argentine/Colombian duo, is the Latina Cocteau Twins. Collaborating with two dancers plus a poet/painter and a storyteller/musician, Lulacruza created a stage show, Caminantes de la Tierra (Walkers of the Earth). Multidisciplines echo the multinationalities, torn loyalties, and myriad questions facing immigrants. Apparently it's getting even weirder to move a long way from home, now that videophones à la Blade Runner are becoming more and more a part of the nonfictional world. Other questions addressed by the caminantes include "What is a nomad?" and "Is it necessary to have a home? Or can one exist statelessly?"

  • 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.'"
