Icy Hot

Timing is everything, or at least something, and once in a while the forces of justice catch a break. Two weeks ago, certified prick Rush Limbaugh offered a solution — "There's always the neighborhood dumpster" — to poor kids for whom summer means not only no school, but no school lunches. A heartless and indefensible comment, yet in one sense backed up by Jeremy Seifert's Dive! Living Off America's Waste (5 p.m.). The curtain-raiser of the two-day Frozen Film Festival, the doc lifts the lid on the amount of perfectly edible food thrown out by grocery stores every day. (Rest assured that Seifert is not encouraging adolescents to forage for themselves behind Safeway, nor are we.) Timing is irrelevant, however, if you're one of the immortals, as Geoff Edgers discovers in his first-person pursuit of certified genius Ray Davies and the Kinks, Do It Again (9:30 p.m. today and 6:15 p.m. tomorrow). And in the end, time waits for no one, pricks or geniuses, which is why short-film directors pack so much into so few frames, as evidenced by the five shorts programs spanning animation, comedy, nonfiction, and even a hodgepodge of crime and Westerns.

  • 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.'"
