Drawing on Life 

Wednesday, Jun 24 2009
Absurdity and insight are at the heart of Joey Alison Sayers’ work, which includes comic strips, paintings, and T-shirt design. It’s angry giggling, or a giggling anger, that animates the simply drawn faces in Thingpart, her weekly comic strip. Her round-toothed anyones speak in subtle oddities, and God, depicted as a cube with tiny eyes, is too distracted by a copy of Naked Deities to keep the world in order. Just So You Know is Sayers’ new collection of comics; it documents her transsexuality and transition into living as a woman with a sweetness that is beautiful ballast to the sarcastic undertone. The complexity of experience and observation allows readers of all stripes to enjoy the material. She’s joined by P.S. Comics author Minty Lewis and a handful of guest cartoonists.

  • 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.'"
