Bro-ing Circle 

Wednesday, Sep 30 2009
Crotch holes are probably the number one male sewing dilemma. A lot of other stuff, you can take it to the lady at the dry cleaner's, she’ll do it. But will you take her the crotch holes? That would be more intimate; maybe you don’t care. The moral of the story is that many men secretly want to take up needle and thread, but are too big of pansies to march themselves over to the Jo-Ann for lessons. But at Rock 'n’ Roll Sewing for Dudes, the DIY mages behind Indie Mart (mostly founder Kelly Malone) bring testosterone-friendly vibes to one of the most feminine of arts. Malone’s new business offers lots of other classes, too, like Dog Day Afternoon (make a dog bed), Shrinky Dink Jewelry Making, and Shadowboxes and Shelves Made from Old Drawers. The sewing class fee includes beer; expect to hear Black Sabbath and learn to make can koozies out of your old flannel shirts.

  • 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.'"
