Matchbook Walking Tour From the Tenderloin to Union Square (2/13)

When: Thu., Feb. 13, 6:30-8:30 p.m. 2020
Phone: 415-351-1912
Email: info@tenderloinmuseum.org
Price: $20
Join us for an evening tour through San Francisco’s historic corridors between the Tenderloin and Union Square. Back by popular demand, this is a brand new tour as a follow-up to last year’s Tenderloin Matchbook-Neon tour. Randall Homan and Al Barna from San Francisco Neon and Katie Conry from the Tenderloin Museum will lead a walking exploration of Tenderloin matchbooks associated with legacy businesses and neon signs. Just like matchbooks, historic neon signs are a fascinating synecdoche of the small businesses they represent, and a window to the past explored through material culture.

  • 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.'"
