Acting UP: GIRLFLY Visuals, a new art exhibit designed by local youth for the Tenderloin, opens in the Tenderloin Museum’s gallery on 8/16! GIRLFLY, the summer youth workshop of activist aerial dance crew Flyaway Productions, introduces 20 teen girls to “outcast activism” in the TL, integrating social justice, female empowerment, oral history writing, visual art and aerial dance! For their gallery show, the girls collaborated with archivist Dr. Catherine Powell, director of the Labor Archives & Research Center at SF State, and visual artist Lala Openi to translate stories about housing, immigration, and labor activism into visual art.

  • 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.'"
