Disruptive Students 

Wednesday, Mar 24 2010
The shortest distance between your cynicism and your inspiration is a straight line spit by teenaged poets. Trust us – we have sat in grand theaters, jaded journalists that we are, among the rowdier-than-usual crowds at previous Youth Speaks Grand Slam Finals, watching benevolently.

  • 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.'"
