Whether your life looks more like The Family Circus or The Boondocks, your chance has arrived to chronicle it in graphic novel form at the Graphic Novel Master Class with Ariel Schrag. The fantastically talented Schrag self-published her first comic series, Awkward, as a freshman in high school and has been rolling strong ever since. She has published four graphic novels: Awkward, Definition, Potential, and the recently released Likewise. She was a staff writer on Showtime’s lesbo groan-and-gasp drama The L Word for seasons three and four, and recently toured with notorious literary road show Sister Spit. The woman knows from drama: She’ll help develop your story, style, and layout, as well as discussing those who have come before you, such as Art Spiegelman and Marjane Satrapi. Strap on your typewriters and bloom under the tutelage of Schrag’s graphic mind.

  • 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.'"
