Free Samples 

Wednesday, Apr 28 2010
As with any cultish event, Free Comic Book Day has its own codes and rituals — there’s more to it than simply waltzing into a store to collect your free comic book. For FCBD, you must waltz into a participating store — don’t run into some Borders and start screaming about any FCBD, because they’ll have security radioed as soon as you breach the property line. Same with Barnes and Noble and any 7-Eleven with a decent spinning rack. Key word, then: Participating. Afterward: You are encouraged, but not required, to become a fan, and maybe fly to Comic Con in San Diego in July. Local participating stores include Caffeinated Comics Company, Mission: Comics & Art; Isotope, and Comix Experience.

  • 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.'"
