Luna Tics 

Wednesday, Apr 8 2009
Alejandro Murguía volunteered in Nicaragua in 1979 — with the good guys, not with the U.S.-backed Contras. He's the author of two books and the former editor of the 1970s local Chicano literary magazine Tin-Tan. We mention this because although the Lunada is a full-moon open-mike event, Murguía is one of the featured readers. So you're going to want to think a little bit before you show up to read your relationship poetry. Do you really want to get onstage with your sad little tale after this guy, who's now a Raza Studies professor at San Francisco State? He probably invented Raza Studies. Bring your A game, buddies. Poet and singer Sandra Garcia Rivera and musician Theresa Perez are also featured.

  • 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.'"
