How Low Can You Go? 

Wednesday, May 6 2009
If any supervillain has been waiting to orchestrate a dastardly swing through some plate glass, this is the meaningful yet swanky affair to hit. So watch out if you attend NightLife this evening, where creator Graham Hawkes shows off his Deep Flight Super Falcon Submersible, a very James Bond kind of personal submarine. The Falcon is to old, clunky bathyscaphes what aircraft are to blimps, Hawkes' Web site explains, and indeed, it's sleek as hell. Is it a comic book come to life? Well, it doesn't dive below 1,000 feet, so maybe no. The daring inventor, however, has fully designed Deep Flight’s successor, the Deep Flight II, which only requires a deep-pocketed Bruce Wayne to get built. It’ll be capable of plumbing the very Marianas Trench itself, and that is brain candy come to life.

The Deep Flight Super Falcon Submersible goes public at 6 p.m.
May 13-17, 2009

  • 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.'"
