IMOW Down Your BS 

Wednesday, Jun 11 2008
The International Museum of Women is a local organization operating somewhat under the radar. It has no bricks and mortar location; it just surfaces here and there with art exhibits, lectures, and film events, like this one: Women Wielding Cameras: Women, Power, and Politics Film Festival. Two Academy Award-nominated documentaries, a semisecret nationless Arab satellite TV show, and a portrait of the ultimate "little old lady in tennis shoes," Run Granny Run, make up WWC. Mother-activists in Argentina, Rwandan survivors, and 90-year-old senatorial candidates — this is exactly what we want from an international women's museum. Filmmakers Kimberlee Acquaro for God Sleeps in Rwanda and Marlo Poras for Run Granny Run appear after their screenings — and Poras plans to have Doris "Granny D" Haddock with her.

  • 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.'"
