No art is as marked for time as a freshly stamped skateboard graphic. In the old days (the late '80s), they used to be protected by rails, but skaters quickly decided that such frippery was unbecoming. Now they're marred by the first tentative boardslide and completely destroyed shortly thereafter. The art at "Dirty Birds: New and Original Art on Skateboard Decks," however, should stay clean, unless some kid decides to cut loose with his parents' art collection. The show features more than 30 artists doing their thing to the planks, including David Choong Lee, Greg "Pnut" Galinsky, Sirron Norris, Tony Alva, Romanowski, Jay Howell, David Flores, Kelly Tunstall, and N8 Vandyke. Find out if anyone tops Jeff Phillips' "Screaming Hand."

  • 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.'"
