Go Ahead, Stare 

Wednesday, Nov 11 2009
Art class lacks something. Like sex! A while back, a frustrated art student named Molly Crabtree had a light bulb go off over her head, connecting the two places a modern young lady experiences public nudity these days: the burlesque show and the figure drawing class. She decided to combine the two into something called Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School, and no surprise, people like it. At this month’s incarnation, Dr. Sketchy’s San Francisco presents Eva Von Slut, our local Mae West look-alike. The frontwoman of all-lady psychobilly band Thee Merry Widows is also a frequent fetish photography model, so in addition to plenty of curvature, Von Slut brings experience in not wiggling for moments at a time. “Bring extra colored pencils,” the organizers remind artists, and indeed, the lady is colorful, literally and figuratively.

  • 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.'"
