Everyday Art 

Wednesday, Feb 25 2009
Philadelphia’s Artclash Collective began modestly enough: A group of friends decided to motivate one another with a flurry of creative busy-ness. Two decided to write a pop song every day of the month, two others agreed to draw a picture each day, and two more chose to treat their lives as art, yielding triumphs of daily bed-making and carefully detailed awkward moments. The culmination was the “Fun-A-Day” exhibit, a full month of devotion on display. Like an elaborate, slightly neurotic, but charming game of show-and-tell, “Fun-A-Day” has proven irresistible, growing exponentially in size and popularity over the last five years. Proving this is not just a Philly phenomenon, a group of transplants, including a founding member of Artclash, launched the first “Fun-A-Day in the Bay” this January, asking for sets of 31 anythings from anyone. Always up to challenges of free, artful quirkiness, San Francisco responded with a harvest of songs, drawings, movies, poems, and sculptures, as well as a bounty of whatever: apple cores, mustaches, rumors, dust-ball monsters, mix tapes, pizza crusts, pantyhose, dreams, yetis, bedhead portraits, tarot readings, quilting squares, burnt remnants, muffins, puppets, shingles, mold — you get the idea. Tonight, the results are on display.

  • 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.'"
