Doc of the Bay 

Wednesday, May 15 2013
If you are so excited about documentaries that you always can’t even wait another minute to see one, you’re in luck. Two of the most talked-about documentaries showing during SF Docfest will be previewed Tuesday night at the Roxie. There’s the film 10th Parallel, in which a Brazilian director takes the audience on a journey 300 miles into the Amazon to visit one of those groups of people who’ve never met other folks. Then there’s the Sundance Award-winning The Machine Which Makes Everything Disappear, made by a Georgian (country not state) filmmaker, who traveled her country interviewing young adults from all different walks of life. This preview is the introduction to the DocFest, which runs June 6-23 and celebrates the documentary form. The Fest’ll showcase films on all topics, from Burning Man to Bettie Page, from Pussy Riot to roller disco, from AIDS to architecture.
Tue., May 28, 7 & 9 p.m., 2013

  • 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.'"
