Mr. Fellowship Himself

We love him because he was a nature lover and a creative writor; see, he just reached out from beyond the grave and gave us poetic license to mis-spell "writer." Thank you Wallace Stegner! "We need wilderness preserved - as much of it as is still left, and as many kinds - because it was the challenge against which our character as a people was formed," he wrote, and that's weird enough for our taste. At the Wallace Stegner Centennial, Philip Fradkin, author of Wallace Stegner and the American West, UCSC literature professor Page Stegner, and Stanford professor emerita Nancy Packer hold forth on the life of this interesting advocado.

  • 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.'"
