Cartooning for Change 

Wednesday, Jun 25 2014

The polar ice caps are melting, water levels are rising, and it's getting hotter and hotter every year. That's why you should drop in on Yoram Bauman's Climate Cartoons event. Dubbed the world's one and only "stand-up economist," Yoram will demonstrate how humor can be used to combat some of the modern world's most unnerving trends, including climate change and the worldwide extinction of animal species. He will be joined by storyteller Jonah Sachs, who participated in the making of the "Story of Stuff" series. Stop by for an evening of laughter and warmth, and learn how humor and storytelling can become tools for tackling global conflict.

  • 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.'"
