Gotta Hand It to 'Em 

Wednesday, Jan 16 2013
While the rest of us were sleeping, a generation of entrepreneurial women revolutionized the art of the fingernail. Forget old clichés like a diamond is forever — these ladies are serious about nail art. You could even say they get out of hand with it. But don’t take our word for it, head to the aptly and hilariously titled show “Hand Jobs” tonight. Artist AstroWifey draws infinite black-and-white tribal patterns; Nail Jerks goes for the urban street style and is on site to bling up your digits; and jewelers Leah Meleski and Yuri Tozuka display intricate metal rings and accessories that utilize sculptural techniques and found objects. The show was curated by 24K Gallery co-founders Brooke Valentine, Elizabeth Woll, and Lidija Ristic, who have quickly made a name and a home for themselves in the Mission District’s thriving art scene. If that’s not enough to get you out of the house, consider this: When was the last time you could say you were heading out to the Mission for a free hand job?

    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.'"
