Getting the Thustra 

Wednesday, Dec 16 2009
Local artist and activist Sara Thustra is well known and well loved for making paintings and street art. Trippy geometry, text bits, and a neon-meets-Earth color palette are signature moves. But Thustra is also a calendar-maker. In 2006, a huge calendar project collected reminiscences of Greg Scott and other LGBT activist/survivors into a set of inspired multi-month panels. So when the artist offers 25-cent calendars to be disbursed through a vending machine, we can't help but get excited. The machines also hold wristwatches and paintings, each a quarter, and in the gallery itself, bright paint work starts at the floor and goes 14 feet up to the ceilings.

  • 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.'"
