Alto Means "Cut It Out?" 

Wednesday, Jun 30 2010
This past May, a caravan of working people from San Francisco headed to Phoenix, Ariz., not to swing woods and irons, but to join a protest against the state’s recent anti-immigrant law, SB 1070. Our fine town sent folks from various contingents, including Service Employees International Union 1020, Community Housing Partnership, and an Asian-Pacific Islander delegation. As part of LaborFest 2010, Alto Arizona: Rank and File Voices in Solidarity With Immigrant Workers features reports from attendees and a discussion about future actions: It's an opportunity to share ideas about what more can be done to encourage equality in Arizona. If you’re feeling powerless or disconnected from the forces of positivity in a bleak moment, tonight’s action-oriented information-share will get you out of the sand trap..

  • 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.'"
