But Is it Art? 

Wednesday, May 20 2009
We had a cat once. She was a total diva who preferred to nap on freshly made beds featuring geometric elements that contrasted not only with the overall bed color scheme but also with her own gleaming onyx pelt. A friend finally clued us in: “She’s a design-oriented cat,” he explained. If you're also a design-oriented cat, the Union Design Festival (formerly Capsule) is for you. Locally and largely sustainably and organically produced items include spats for high heeled girls by Ashes and Empires, Mikaleen’s traditional Japanese baby clothes, and attractive disposable overnight kits for manwhores by Ho on the Go. Obviously, t-shirts and jewelry abound among the 130-odd companies. Maybe even for cats.

  • 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.'"
