As you're scouring Valencia Street for unique Christmas gifts that don't scream " FREE Super Saver Shipping," don't forget to make your way down to the ripe little section of 16th Street at Mission. That's where the Lab sits, and for the past 10 years it's hosted a big small-format art sale every December. For eight days, Post-Postcard 11 turns the space into a "bazaar-like bargain-hunter's paradise," which is exactly the sort of thing you like to hear when it comes to local art. Dozens of artists contribute hundreds of pieces, priced at $1-$30, with the only stipulation being that each artist’s collection fits entirely into a 6-by-11-inch box. Previous sales included the likes of Tracey Snelling, Matt Furie, and Veronica de Jesus, so we suggest treating Post-Postcard like your own little Black Friday and getting there early.

An opening reception for members of the Lab starts at 5 p.m. on Nov. 30.
Nov. 30-Dec. 8, 11 a.m., 2007

  • 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.'"
