Onetime screening of the biographical documentary "Cesar Chavez: History is made one step at a time." The film follows Chavez's efforts to organize 50,000 farm workers in California, some of whom were temporary workers from Mexico. Working conditions are very poor for the farm workers, who also suffer from racism and brutality at the hands of the employers and local Californians. "Cesar Chavez" portrays the creation of the labor union know as the United Farm Workers (UFW), and several major nonviolent campaigns lead by Chavez and UFW: the Delano Grape, The Salad Bowl Strike, and the 1975 Modesto march.

  • 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.'"
