The Comic-Con Best Documentary winner about Chesley Bonestell, the native San Franciscan artist called “The Father of Space Art” and credited as a quiet force behind the creation of America's space program. Bonestell not only gave us his famous view of “Saturn as seen from Titan” but also survived the 1906 SF quake to eventually help rebuild the city and work on the Golden Gate Bridge! "Chesley Bonestell: A Brush with the Future" chronicles the extraordinary, nine-decade life of a quiet, artistic visionary, whose paintings continue to inspire us to reach for the stars.

  • 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.'"
