Spoke Art and Zach Tutor, curator of the wildly popular art blog Supersonic Electronic, host the third annual Supersonic Electronic Invitational art show. The exhibit boasts a lineup of 41 of the best new contemporary artists from around the globe. Tutor's website has become a space for artists to see and be seen, but he still values the traditional gallery experience. Tudor tells us, "The gallery is still the most important space for an artist, and these artist's works, which are mostly viewed on screens around the world, are given, in a sense, a physical blog post." And although the digital realm is his area of expertise, Tudor says it's still vital to view artwork in person. "For me, there is much beauty in seeing an artist's work from the distance of a screen and finally having the chance to view it in person. It's like knowing of a treasure's existence, following the map, and then digging it up — basking in the light of the gold."


Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays. Starts: Jan. 9. Continues through Jan. 25, 2014

  • 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.'"
