Been a Long Time, Been a Long Time 

Wednesday, Sep 8 2010
It’s strange that it took years for the visual art world to establish its online voice. Despite a plethora of image-sharing services such as Flickr, Tumblr, and ffffound, sites that meaningfully document the art scene have been few and far between. Over the past decade, San Francisco’s Fecal Face has risen to the top of the heap, providing the art community with its very own Pitchfork or Gawker Media through consistently strong news coverage, a dependable calendar, and tart criticism. After a decade of being the Little Shit-Named Site That Could, Fecal Face is celebrating with “10 Years of Fecal Face Dot Com,” an anniversary exhibition and afterparty. Featuring work by 25 visual artists hailing from art hotspots including San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, and London, the show highlights the famous (Tiffany Bozic, David Choe, Shepard Fairey, Mars-1, and Jeff Soto) as well as emerging artists such as Richard Colman and Sylvia Ji. The afterparty at a nearby club offers a glimpse into the bacchanalian excess of the art world’s underground, with live music by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, Ty Segall, and DJ Ted Shred, plus a raffle for original art and clothing. If you spent any time at a liberal arts college, you know that the art kids throw the best parties.

The “10 Years of Fecal Face Dot Com” opening reception starts at 6 p.m.
Sept. 10-Oct. 8, 2010

  • 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.'"
