Dirt: ready for its closeup 

Wednesday, Sep 18 2013

Soil is what makes life possible, says the documentary Symphony of the Soil, playing Saturday at the Roxie. The film explores the science of the precious planetary resource across four different continents, giving audiences an insight into how the soil is being affected by, and effecting, environmental changes. The filmmakers have consulted and interviewed experts from many fields — geologists, farmers, chemists, biologists, and nonprofit leaders — who lend their voices to the film. The filmmaker, Deborah Koons Garcia, won several awards for science and food films for her endeavor, which brings to light the complex relationship we have with the "earth's skin." Soil will never look so beautiful.

  • 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.'"
