Avoir Du Chien 

Wednesday, Apr 8 2009
Judy North is leading two lives. In one, she's a mild-mannered painter of dog portraits, some of which hang at Heaven's Dog & Noodle Shop. It is there that "Walk the Dog Electric," a miniature art crawl, begins, with drinks and appreciation for the relatively straightforward paintings of canines. North's other life is influenced by psychedelic drugs. "Why Not Say It?" is an exhibit of highly color-intensive and improbable scenarios, clearly visited on canvas by the brush of a hophead. North (or whatever this alter-ego calls herself) insists each of them tells a "story." The by-now post-cocktail tour group crawls to see these displayed at Electric Works gallery, just around the corner from the Noodle Shop. Curator Richard Lang is on hand serving as sherpa at both venues.

  • 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.'"
