Jamaica Dyer is the new Ariel Schrag. If you don't know what that means, then … you're not a comics geek. The point is, Dyer's innovative watercolor Web-comic, Weird Fishes, has the ability to pull readers, as though with a rope, into the world of teen instability and pit-deep passions. (And it's now a book, as well.) We haven't seen independent sequential art this evocative since Schrag's early autobiographical work, and that's saying a lot — she won a slew of awards and is now a wildly successful writer (for The L Word) and professor (the New School). At "Dee's Siren Song," Dyer exhibits original paintings of panels from Weird Fishes and other work, much of it mixed watercolor and digital graphic techniques. We predict wild success.

  • 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.'"
