Art of Gold 

Wednesday, Aug 15 2012
The arts sector is one of our city's major life forces -- not only do the arts feed the city's soul, but also its pockets -- four times as many jobs and three times as much city revenue than other similarly-sized cities, in fact. This is why nearly 70 arts and culture organizations have come together to host the third annual San Francisco Arts Town Hall. The forum features candidates for the S.F. Board of Supervisors and serves as an opportunity for both the arts community and the general public to collectively shape the arts' role in future political agendas. In the past, the event has successfully served as a space for the arts sector to bring the breadth of its impact on culture, education, and the economy to light -- around $509 million in household income and 1.7 billion in local tourist revenue annually, both hearty chunks of change. Further proof through the support of the general public is greatly appreciated. This Town Hall is hosted by groundbreaking journalist Belva Davis, and is followed by a reception -- a great opportunity to engage in more intimate conversations with local artists, community members, and politicians like David Chiu, John Avalos, and Thea Selby.

  • 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.'"
