Deathbowl to Downtown 

Wednesday, Sep 17 2008
There are skate flicks and then there are skate flicks. Deathbowl to Downtown strives to hop the rail from skateboard movie to anthropological study by documenting how New York city adapted -- architecturally, legally, and psychologically -- to a burgeoning skate culture from the 1970s through the 1990s. Filmmakers Coan Nichols and Rick Charnoski, who shot Super 8 footage for Gus Van Sant's film Paranoia Park, blend interviews with seminal figures like the original Zoo York team and vintage skating footage (some of it Super 8). Narrated by Chloe Sevigny.

  • 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.'"
