The San Francisco Silent Film Festival teams up with the German language institute to bring us the importance of being Ernst. Rare Silent Films by Ernst Lubitsch lives up to its name with everything from documentaries to Die Bergkatze. Aficionados lust after the PR BS that turned out to mean something afer all: "The Lubitsch Touch." What is the Lubitsch Touch? Critics love to play this game; our favorite is the Chicago Tribune's definition: "Sophistication, style, subtlety, wit, charm, elegance, suavity, polished nonchalance and audacious sexual nuance."

  • 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.'"
